What's in a name??

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 6538)

This is a very simple pattern. You can make it harder by adding power moves to it.

Repeat this same pattern on north side of bench facing south.
Power it up by making the lunges into squats.

Variations:

Turnstep =
"Three point turn" Start like a normal turn. (1) Right foot to east bench (2) Left foot to bench out wide. (3) Right foot to floor (4) Left foot stays on bench (to begin turning back). (5) Right foot to bench out wide. (6) Left foot to floor. (7)(8) Single jack

"Turn mambo":
Start like a normal turn. (1) Right foot to east bench (2) Left foot to bench out wide. (3) Right Foot to floor. (4) Left foot crosses over (south) Right for the mambo part right foot lifts slightly. (5) Right foot back down, same place. (6) Left foot to bench. (7) Right foot to bench out wide. (8) Left foot to floor. **You must turn slightly on this move because you need to be facing south to start your grapevines right/left.

"Turning knees":
Start like a normal turn. (1) Right foot to east bench (2) Left foot to bench out wide. (3) Right foot to west floor lunging way back. (4) Right knee up. (5) Right foot to bench out wide. (6) Left foot to east floor lunging way back. (7) Left knee. (8) Left foot to floor. **You must turn slightly on this move because you need to be facing south to start your grapevines right/left.

Grapevine =
"Football shuffle" Just like it says. Using very tiny syncopated steps. The count is 1&2&3&4 (right/left/right/left/right/left/right/left) (1) Facing south right foot steps west. (&) Left foot steps beside right (2) Right foot steps west (&) Left foot steps beside right... repeat until 4th count the do the same pattern heading east but facing south.

"Shuffle over":
Another syncopated step. Facing west. (1) Right foot on bench. (&) Left foot on bench (2) Right foot to north floor (&) Left foot beside right on floor still facing west. (3)(4) Hop hop. It is easier for my class if I count the 1&2& as a quick 123 and then slight pause on the last '&' count. Clap on the hop hop. Repeat to get to the south side 'home'. Ready to begin the 6x lunges.

"Over with 3 knees":
I start this by a regular over the top, then add three knees. (1) Facing west right foot to bench. (2) Left foot to bench. (3) Right foot to floor north side. (4) Left knee raises. (5) Left foot back to bench same spot. (6) Right knee raises. (7) Right foot back to floor same spot. (8) Left knee raises. Now you are ready repeat to get home.

"The Boxer":
After I teach the over with 3 knees I change it slightly to resemble a boxer. Your fists are next to your shoulders/jaws basic boxing position. (1) Facing west right foot to bench. (2) Left foot to bench. (3) Right foot to floor north side. (4) Left foot taps bench while left arm jabs across the body lean into it slightly. Right hand is next to right shoulder. (5) Bring left foot flat on bench and left arm back to shoulder position. (6) Right foot taps floor while right fist jabs across the body. (7) Bring right foot flat on floor and right arm back to shoulder position. (8) Left foot taps bench while left arm jabs across the body. Repeat back to 'home'

Hope all this makes sense... some is borrowed and adapted. Thanks for all the patterns that I have used. You guys are awesome!!
