Hampster Dance

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 10968)

I do this to the song "Cotton Eyed Joe". It works good with the beat.

Basically I alternate the class in a doing jump sequences

Divide class in 1/2

Then I break it down into 1 eight count, 4 count, 2 count, and finally only if you're class is fairly advanced 1 counts (or popcorn jumps) PS - I usually do a few double eight counts, single eights, fours.. before breaking it down.

After a small rest interval (everyone seated) I have the participants count of in As and Bs (every other person). Then I repeat the above steps starting with As only then Bs...

If you've ever seen the hampster dance on the internet, that's what they end up looking like especially when your on the 2 and 1 count jumps.

I tried to do it myself with them but find it's way to hard to cue so I just ride a flat and cue them.

They love it.
