These combos take a little work but they are fun!

Combo 1

Z-step: Two step touches on top and two on the floor. Make your step down to the floor on a diagonal. (See Turnstep Dictionary)

Zig zag: Three over the top moving forward.

Walk-away Joe: (1,2) walk diagonally right and left on the step, (3,4) keep walking diagonally right and left on the floor away from your step, (5,6) step forward right and pivot 180, (7,8) walk back to the step right and left.

Combo 2

Rhythm rock: (1,2,3) Stomp right, walk down left and right, (4,5,6) stomp left, walk down right and left.

Combo 3

Thank you Carole Paradise for the first 8 counts of this combo!

V-slide: (1,2) Up wide right and left (3,4) right leg crosses behind the left to exit, right steps next to left. You should be at the southwest corner with enough space to pony around the west end. Try turning the ponies as you move along.

The kicks are done facing the back. The right foot lead starts at the northeast corner. This is your left when facing back.

Rock around: Done on the floor from a straddle position. When using right lead you start facing west. Think of this move as giant steps over the step turning forward, back, forward, back. It makes a circle and you finish where you started. (1) Right knee lifts moving it forward over the step, (2) right steps down on the south side - your back is to the step and you are facing back, (3) left knee lifts moving backward over the step, (4) left steps down on the north side - you are straddling again facing east, (5) right knee lifts moving forward over the step, (6) right steps down on the north side - your back is to the step again and you are facing front, (7) left knee lifts moving backward over the step, (8) left steps down on the south side - you are back where you started.

Jazz square: (1) Right steps on top, (2) left crosses over right on top, (3) right steps off to the right, (4) left taps down.

As usual, email any questions. I love to hear from you.

Merry christmas and happy holidays to everyone. Whatever your beliefs are I hope the peace and joy of the season are with you!!
