Terrific Tapless Step

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14473)

All combos are self-reversing, 32-count, and tapless. They start and end with being behind the bench, in traditional position. Bench is horizontal. I usually go through it all "back-to-back" and then alternate the patterns for the big finish. (Based on a 60 minute class with warm up, abs, and cool down.)

Combo #1

*L-step around the world: knee off the end, turn in to the bench, knee bench--now you are facing the back, go to the other end, and knee on the bench, turn in to the bench, and knee lift home. Now you are facing front again.

Combo #2

*Jump up: you have some options with this move. If people do not want to jump, they can just tap up, and exit--changing sides (down down). Intermediate level is jumping up and giving two small jumps on top of the bench, exiting and changing sides. Advanced level is jumping up and doing a knee lift on top of the bench and then exiting, changing sides.

Combo #3

Combo #4

Combo #5

*I break this down by doing corner corner knee and a side leg. Then a knee on the bench, walk back to a side leg. Finally, you can then take it to the side of the bench.

It looks a little tricky, but it's lots of fun. All my classes love the layers; I hope you have fun with it too.

The total count is 16.
