Derrierre Kicker -- Tapless from Jacque

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14126)

This combination is a good intensity builder. Pretty easy to build too.

64 counts, horizontal bench, self-reversing, tapless, assume right lead.

Now teach a 4 knee repeater (use any variation -- I used a ricochet -- the repeating leg touches over & back 2x's).

Go back to the first 32 count block and substitute the 4 knee repeater in place of the 3 knee repeater. Your foot will finish in the air and you are ready to drop down into your double squats!

Both 32 count blocks of this combo self-reverse until you change the 3 knee repeater to a 4 knee -- so they are easy to teach separately. Once you change to a 4 knee repeater and combine them, the first part does not reverse, but the second part does.

*7 knee repeater variations:
Many people in my class have their own favorite variation on a 7 knee. Here are a couple I like with turning options.

Version 1 -- X-country ski repeater:
step knee right lead (1,2); left foot down, tap back right (3,4); on the floor, scissors the legs (5,6); step knee right lead (7,8); left foot down, tap back right (9,10); on the floor, scissors the legs (11,12); step knee right lead (13,14); exit down, down (15,16)

Version 2:
same as version 1, except hop turn on the first knee to face the short end (west end, facing east). Do your scissors facing the short end, then hop turn back to where you started on the next knee.

Version 3 -- ball change or cha cha repeaters:
step knee exit ball change (or some call it a step knee cha cha cha) (1-4); step knee exit ball change (5-8); step knee exit ball change (9-12); step knee exit down, down (13-16)

Version 4:
same as version 3 except make the second and third "step knee"s back hop turns (or forward hop turns if that feels better).
