Spinning and stepping (Swedish advanced)

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14741)

This is pretty tricky with crossphrasing, spins (most are optional), rhythm changes and home made moves and requires some thinking to break down and teach with filler moves and layering. I put together this routine as an inspirational class to a step workshop I did for a level 2 instructor's training course just to show what you can do and how much fun you can have with a step bench! ;-) Tapless, self-reversing 32 count blocks, works well to weave if you have enough time left after teaching everything...

Block 1

Ready to repeat on other lead.

* Ham curl right into 3 count mambo backwards right on count 4 and left on count 7, right foot up count 1, ham curl left count 2, exit left count 3, right foot back crossing slightly behind on count 4, left foot steps in place on count 5, right foot steps to the side on count 6, left foot steps back on count 7, slightly crossing, right foot steps in place on count 8.

** Step up left/right turning right and straddle down left/right facing left.

*** Boxstep, left foot on the step, near the left short end, right crosses over and steps down on the floor, left foot steps back, right foot steps to the side, starting to turn slowly to the right (getting ready for hangover V-step).
