The Diamond

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15379)

Here's an idea I thought of to set up the steps:



                           _____     _____
                           |   |     |   |
                     _____                 _____
                     |   |                 |   |
               _____                            _____
               |   |                            |   |
         _____                                       _____
         |   |                                       |   |
               _____                            _____
               |   |                            |   |
                     _____                  _____
                     |   |                  |   |
                          _____       _____
                          |   |       |   |


This would be a set up for a class no more than 14 people (unless you have room to make a bigger diamond).

To make the combinations work, you would make the combinations be for 2 people. So partner 1 (on the left side of the diamond) would do the "opposite" combination of their partner who is on the right side of the diamond. Example: L-step right side, for the people on the right side of the diamond, and an L-step left, for the people on the left side of the diamond.

Everyone in the class has one step; their partner is the step directly across from them. You can make them switch steps with their partners. To make it even (so one set of partners is not traveling a longer distance; after a couple of 8 counts, everyone goes up one step and has a new partner)

Some ideas for combinations would be taking an "L-step" to the step behind you, or do a "diagonal" to the next bench.
