Jacque's Spinning Waltz

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15312)

32 counts, reversing, tapfree, crossphrased. Horizontal board.

Repeat beginning with left leg.

* Reverse basic: reverse up (1,2), turning 360 to face front as you exit (3,4) finishing exactly where you started.

** Here's where the fun begins! Not everyone will want to do option 2 because it happens on the floor and you have to think about foot placement without the board as a marker. Some people call this a "Tango" because one foot goes behind the other, but my class already knew "Waltz on top" as a 3 count reverse up move, so I stayed with that term.

Option 1: Reverse up right,left turning counter-clockwise with left foot behind the right. On 3 the right foot returns to the board in the same position as count 1, but you begin a clock-wise turn. Continue the clockwise turn on 4,5 as you exit. Then reverse up left, right continuing clockwise on counts 6,7. left foot down on board on count 8 which begins a counter-clockwise turn. Continue turning counter-clockwise as you exit 9,10. You should end basically facing front.

Option 2: Take this same foot pattern to the floor! Remember you are "reversing" into this, so it begins with a turn to face the back of the room on count 1. On count 2 step behind, on count 3 reverse the direction of the turn to "unwind" and face front on 4,5. Then repeat on the other side with the opposite leg.
