Tapless In Vegas

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 4309)

32 Count, self-reversing, advanced skill level, tapless, horizontal. Note, there is a lot of "buying and selling" beats in this pattern. It all adds up to two 16 count patterns that can be taught separately. Some of the groupings can't be broken apart successfully. You may need to put the class in a holding pattern and demonstrate for them. This is a trust building pattern. It will be clear to them in the end.

Breakdown:

L Swing: an L-step where you stay at the side for 10 counts before doing your down-down. The "swing" comes from the way you swing your arms and legs from side to side. You can intensify things by adding propulsion to these swings.

Double jump repeater down-down:

You can really pump up the heart rate by repeating the L Swing and Flip over and over. The second one will happen with the class facing the back of the room. That's exciting. But remember that when you repeat it over and over, you're not changing leads on the L-step. So when you eventually do your lead change, you better treat that lead leg to the same number of repetitions. The double jump/slingshot/sidewinder will change leads each time if you repeat it in multiples.

Have fun with this. Email me if there's anything unclear. You know how hard it is to translate the split-phrasing.
