Notes:

Combo 1
I call the first 16 counts a Q-step. For higher intensity/impact you can do the marches as skips and instead of mambos do small hops back and forth on the floor right off the very corner of the step to make the "tail" of the Q.

Combo 2
The shuffle is a quick side move left, right, left. - I do it on the balls of the feet. After mastering the shuffle part try doing the walks as a tight little 360 turn on the floor. You will turn away from the step and lead with the inside foot.

Combo 3
1/2 jacks are a low impact version. You keep one foot in place while the opposite foot steps out wide and back in. On this routine the 1/2 jacks would be done with the same foot stepping out and in.

Combo 4
Tire marches: Keep the step between your feet and lift the knees high as if stepping in and out of tires.
Rockover: (1-4) 2 chugs, (5-8) over the top.

Combo 5
Around the world: Turnstep on long side, over the top, turnstep on long side, over the top.
Mambo combo: One mambo on the floor and one mambo to the step. Try this for variety: (1-4) stomp/chug into a straddle, (5-8) stomp/chug, and exit with a mambo back. I call this a stomp mambo.
