If you want an "A", try this

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 7550)

The step is horizontal and you begin with a side approach, right lead.

Now repeat the pattern with a left lead

Definition of Terms:

A-step: Like an over the top from the side approach but the first up, up goes at a diagonal forward to form the first side of the letter A and the down, down forms the other side of the letter A. This is pretty much a standard move, it's just important to remember that this begins from the side approach.

Straddle tap, right lead: This begins side approach also. Up right (1), up left (2), straddle down right (3), straddle down left (4) tap right foot on floor two times (5,6), tap left foot on floor two times (7,8) This move ends in a straddle position with both feet on the floor. Two regular straddles can be used as a substitute. I also use the regular straddles as a lead-in to teach the straddle tap.

Walk the bench, right lead: This begins side approach. I teach this move like a march. Counts 1 and 2 march with right foot on the bench and left foot on the floor. Counts 3 and 4 march with right foot straddle the bench and left foot on floor. Counts 5 and 6 march with right foot on bench and left foot on floor again. Counts 7 and 8 is a regular march with both feet on the same side you began. Once they've got it you can make it high impact and tell them to bring the knees up high as if they were stepping in tires. Another variation is to take the same feet and move it forward and back along the bench.
