This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14971)

Thanks everyone for the great responses for my last post. I really appreciate the feedback. Here's only two combos for now. Mainly because I wrote so much. Tapless, self-reversing, horizontal step.

Combo 1

Variation on an 8 point mambo (8): assume right lead at left corner, right foot stomps left corner & left foot lifts slightly (1), left foot down and right foot lifts moving towards right corner (2), right foot stomps right corner & left foot lifts (3), left foot to floor & right lifts (4), right foot to floor (5), left foot stomps right corner & right foot lifts slightly (6), left foot to floor and right foot to floor (7,8). Another option after you stomp the right corner with the left foot you can spin off the front of the step, so the left foot goes to the floor on the north side of the step (4), right foot to floor facing the back (5), left foot stomps the right corner facing the back (6), left foot to floor & right foot to floor (7,8), then you would have to do the 1/2 orbit to get back to the south side of the step. I got this from a video, I think it was Phillip Gray.

Combo 2

Elvis stomp with a turn (6): - I also got this from a video, but I can't remember which one. It was either Philip Gray or Rob Glick. I usually start by teaching a double Elvis. The participants all know what that is already. I'll just explain it the way I have written it though. Right lead at left corner, right foot up to left corner (1), left foot to floor at end of step (2), turn the right knee in and the toes are on the step (3), right foot stomps the step & left foot lifts while you turn to face the back (4), left foot to floor on north side of step (5), right foot to floor beside the left (6)

2 kick ball change & swivel (8) - left lead at right corner, left foot to step (1), right kicks 2X's, can add a little ball change in between the two kicks (3-4), right foot to floor (5), left foot behind the right foot on the floor (6), now turn your body on your toes to face the west wall (7), turn you body on your toes to face the east wall (8), hence the "swivel."

I don't usually explain how I teach a combo, but I'm going to this time. I usually teach a double Elvis first, then I do a single Elvis, 6 point mambo & a basic step. Then I do the single Elvis, one stomp, basic, one stomp. Then I will add the last 16 counts, & practice it a few times before I change the single Elvis to the turn off the front of the step. This way in case anyone doesn't want to take the turn off the front of the step, they can stay on the home side and do a basic step instead of the 1/2 orbit. So there's an easy version and then a harder version.

Any questions or comments please feel free to email me.
