Candy's Shared Double +

This is a Double Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15398)

Ok, gang, put your thinking caps on for this one! It was fun though, and amazingly easy to teach. Theres a little surprise at the end.....thats where the 'Shared Double +' comes in. Have fun!

2 People, 3 Benches (Can't add on any more because of the 'surprise' at the end. If someone doesn't have a partner, they still need 3 benches for the last part) Here's the set up:


XXXXX   XXXXX   XXXXX      Yours will be called Home
 .        .                Partners' will be called Away
you      partner

Combo 1:

Repeat left lead from Away, total 32

(*7 count turnstep: up left,right like a turnstep 1-2, left down, right lifts slightly 3, right, left up 4-5, right, left down 6-7, hop on 8)

(** curb walk: same as 3 x 1/2 steps, mambo back. I like to do the #1 on top, #2 step over, #3 on top, #4, mambo back. Or you can do a pivot turn for #3 & 4, or a power tap, etc!)

Combo 2:

Repeat left lead from Away, total 32. (I think this one is understandable. If not ...email)

Combo 3:

Repeat left lead from Away, total 32

TIP: When I was building this, I did both power taps with a "HOLD" on top, then had them march on top with which ever foot was doing the next movement while I explained what was coming next. Then later removed the marches.)

After all the building, I did these 3 combinations 3 x like this:
Round 1: Combo 1,1,2,3
Round 2: Combo 1,2,2,3
Round 3: Combo 1,2,3,3

Now for the SURPRISE: Save about 10 minutes for this. You might want to take a water break here because the arrangement will be different. Let them know they can forget everything else - new stuff comin' up!


                  . partner - facing the back
XXXXX   XXXXX   XXXXX    (Home   Middle   Away)
 .you - facing forward

Think of this as double horizontal step with a partner when you face each other, I just put a step in the middle. There will be a time when you are both on the middle step, but won't be stepping on each other's feet....promise!

Combo:

Repeat left lead from Away, total 32 count

Repeat positions


 .partner
XXXXX   XXXXX   XXXXX
                  .You

I'm gonna get lots of emails on this one.....which is understandable. I can send a video clip if necessary. It really is alot of fun once you get it. Leave it to me to step out of the ordinary!
