Sue's Step #10

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15441)

Hi folks -

Here are two 64 count blocks, all tapless. The first one changes lead, and the second one doesn't, so when you put them both together, the whole thing changes lead.

If you have questions or comments, please email me, and please put "turnstep" somewhere in the subject line!

Thanks!

- Sue

First block (64 counts - changes lead)

Second block (64 counts - does not change lead)

Named steps:

"Knee up right + turnback knee" (8 counts, does not change lead): knee right on bench (4 counts) + knee left on ground facing back corner of room, as if there were a bench there (note: counts 7,8 return back to "home" behind bench)

"Overturn" right (4 counts, does not change lead): half of a revolving door right

"Zig-zag" right (8 counts, does not change lead, faces front): from behind bench right foot on bench, left curl, left foot on bench, right curl, right foot down on ground, left curl, left foot down on ground, right curl

"Hop and kick" right (5 count move, changes lead): hop three times with the right foot on the bench towards the left/west end of the bench facing forward and on counts 2, 3 also add two quick kicks with the left leg (almost more like shakes than kicks) + exit left, right to ground in home position (counts 4,5)

NOTE: This was taken directly from Fred Hoffman's class at IDEA in July in Las Vegas - many thanks to him...

"Push halfway around world" right (6 count move, does not change lead): right foot "pushes" on bench towards left/west end of bench (facing left/west wall), step left, right in straddle (still facing left/west wall), left foot "pushes" on bench, exit right, left on north side of bench (facing back of room)

"K-step" left (8 counts, from behind bench, facing right wall the whole time, looks sort of like the legs of a letter "K", does not change lead): left foot on bench, right foot on ground near left foot, left foot on ground well forward of right foot, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was, left foot on bench, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was, left foot on ground well behind right foot, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was

"Indecision lunge" left (8 count move, does not change lead, starting from behind bench, facing east wall) up-up left,right facing east wall, 2 x lunge to side left,right, down-down left,right exiting to the north and turning to face the back of the room

"Crossover" right (4 counts, some folks call this a weave - like an over-the-top, but without the tap, faces left wall the whole time, changes lead): right foot on bench, left leg swings up behind & over, left foot down on other side of bench, right foot down outside left foot

Alternate layers:

* The 2 straddles right can be an 8 count up-tempo "ski" facing left/west wall: right foot up on bench (count 1), tap right foot to front of bench (count 2) with left foot on bench, tap left foot to back of bench (count 3) with right foot on bench, tap right foot to front of bench (count 4) with left foot on bench, tap left foot to back of bench (count 5) with right foot on bench, tap right foot to front of bench (count 6) with left foot on bench, tap left foot to back of bench (count 7) with right foot on bench, tap right foot to front of bench (count 8) with left foot on bench, AND continue for one more count to tap the left foot behind the bench with the right foot on the bench - this "count 9" then becomes the first count of the knee right which follows (when I teach this layer, I find it helps to tell folks they are going to feel like they "ski" one too many times, I also find it helps to count down the last few counts-)

** These two repeater straddles can be two "twister" repeaters. The right lead version of a "twister repeater" goes like this: ct 1 right foot on bench, count 2 left knee up, count 3 left foot taps down behind and on the other side of the bench (slight turn of body counterclockwise), count 4 left knee up, count 5 left foot taps down where it started (slight turn of body clockwise), count 6 left knee up into half-hop straddle (keep turning clockwise 180 degrees more), counts 7-8 left,right feet down-down in straddle facing right/east wall. There is lots of turning in this one, so definitely need to remind folks to unweight the foot on the bench. In this combo, there are two repeater straddles - you either need to do two "twister" versions or two regular versions - you can't do one of each!
