Warming up in Canada

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14004)

I use both of these combos as my warmup. In my intermediate/advanced classes, it takes about five minutes to break down and teach the 64 counts. The first pattern is not self-reversing, but when put together with the second pattern, the entire thing reverses.

Combo 1:

Combo 2:

All of the following patterns are self-reversing

Combo 3:

Combo 4:

Combo 5:

* A double mambo is a vertical step move that takes a step up on the bench with the foot closest to the bench, step forward with the other foot, step down and mambo with the inside foot, step back up onto the bench with the inside foot, step back with outside foot, and do the backward part of the mambo. Step up, mambo forward, step back, mambo back.

** Flamingo is step up on the bench with inside foot, kick with outside foot, step onto the floor with outside foot, tap over the bench with inside foot, step back onto bench with inside foot, kick up again with outside foot, step down with outside foot, step down with inside foot. Step kick, tap over, step kick, and off the bench.

*** Diagonal I - I begin this move by doing a turnstep followed by two jacks on the floor. I then make it an I-step, but moving it not diagonally over but diagonally across the bench. Up and jack, back and jack, so you do the 8 counts and end up facing the opposite way, still on the back of the bench, but at the other end.
