Four 16-counters equal one 64 count reverser

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14974)

Here's my first posting - been reading the TBB for a while, and feel like I have several new friends to share with. Someday maybe I'll give up the anon.

Anyway, this is a 64 count reversing combo that you "get into" by doing four separate 16 counters two times each (for the 32 count, totalling 128 count), and then splitting them in half for a 64 count. It spends some time on the front of the board also.

16 count #1, crossphrased, done two times for a 32-count: reversing

1 knee box step, 1 knee box step, swing over (my breakdown is at the end)

16 count #2, feels crossphrased, done two times for a 32-count: non-reversing

Hold 2-count, knee walk-away, hold 2-count (my breakdown is at the end)

16 count #3, not crossphrased, done two times for a 32-count: reversing

Ham curl straddle ham curl, L-step done as an L-squat-box step-cha cha (my breakdown at end)

16 count #4, crossphrased, done two times for a 32 count: reversing

Two stomp (taken wide), single stomp, single stomp, shuffle basic (my breadown is at the end)

You can teach each 16 counter 2x (for the 32 count) and then string them all together, or you could teach one, then the next, and put them together, teach the third, add it on, and then the fourth and add it on.

This is a fun routine to cut in half - a different way to get into a 64 count reversing combo - first do each 16-counter two times each, and then cut in half, so the end result is this:

Breakdown #1:

Breakdown #2

Basically this is: one knee, knee walkaway, one knee, but removing the 2-count part where the knee lifts and replacing it with just a stomp on the board and hold.

This doesn't reverse, but be sure to do it two times for the 32 count. It will feel like it's reversing, but it isn't.

Breakdown #3

Teach the L-squat-box-cha cha:

I teach this as L-squat-box-cha cha, ham curl alternate. Then when done, immediately I teach ham curl straddle around the world (16 count), change leads with a 16 count, do the ham curl straddle around the world on the other lead, again change leads with a 16 count. Now you're at the top of the 32 count phrase with the ham curl straddle first and the L-squat second.

Breakdown #4:

This is an 11-count (wide stomp, single stomp single stomp) plus 5-count shuffle basic (sometimes I call it 1 and 2 up)
