Vertical Frenzy

This is a Double Step pattern from (pattern 8106)

Benches are vertical; you need to give yourselves about a step-width between them. I refer to the bench on the left as Home (H) and the bench on the right as Neighbor (N). I've found using these terms make it easier for my classes to remember where they need to move when we take it to the next level - partner step with shared benches.

All combinations are right lead self-reversing, 32 counts. All begin on right lead at Home, then repeat with left lead on Neighbor

Combo 1

Repeat with left lead on Neighbor

Combo 2

Repeat with left lead on Neighbor

Combo 3

Repeat with left lead on Neighbor

Combo 4

Repeat with left lead on Neighbor

Quick explanations...

V-step bench turn V-step floor turn...just what it sounds like. Do a V-step (right foot) on bench, as you exit, turn 180 degrees, do a V-step (right foot) on the floor, turn 180 degrees back to bench. I always tell my students that they're going all the way around the clock so they know it's a full circle.

3-knee repeater with a split lunge... Instead of 3 knee lifts with taps between, all you do is substitute a tap straddle over the bench with the opposite leg for the 2nd knee. So, step bench, knee lift, step floor, tap straddle, step bench, knee lift, exit, exit.

I LOVE this site and recommend it to every instructor I meet. It's helped me more times than I can count, and some of the choreography above has reflects that. I hope this helps and I'd be happy to hear from you if you have any questions or comments.

Keep moving and grooving!!
