# Basic But Fun For All

*This is a
Step pattern from
www.turnstep.com.
(pattern 16233)*

We get a lot of new steppers this time of year, and I wanted a fairly easy routine to introduce the basic steps in a way that wouldn't be boring to the regulars. I'll add options at the end of each combo where needed.

After the breakdown on each lead and practicing it in sequence as combo 1 (right,left), 2 (right,left) and 3 (right,left), we weave the 3 combos for the final few runs. "Weaving" is Combo 1 on right lead, Combo 2 on left lead, Combo 3 on right lead, then 1 on left, 2 on right, and 3 on left. Any time you have an odd number of combos that are self-reversing you can weave them in this manner. (This explanation is for the newbies.)

All of these combos are tapless.

### Combo ONE

- Right turnstep straddle (4)
- Right basic x 2 on end (or any option*) (8)
- Right scissor over to home (4)
- Left walkaway (8)
- Left across the end, left mambo the floor (8)

- Left turnstep straddle (4)
- Left basic x 2 on end (or any option) (8)
- Left scissor over to home (4)
- Right walkaway (8)
- Right across the end, right mambo the floor (8)

*Options would be split basic, T-step, or 2 side lunges

### Combo TWO

- Right V-step x 2** (8)
- Right tic-toc*** (8)
- Left Broadway knee (8)
- Left knee, right knee to corners (8)

- Left V-step x 2 (8)
- Left tic-toc (8)
- Right Broadway knee (8)
- Right knee, left knee to corners (8)

**Option for V-step, back the second one up, or back it up and invert it

***Tic-toc: low impact version: (1) step up right, (2-6) abduct left, right, left (7, 8) step down left and right. This changes lead feet. High impact: (1) step up right (2-6) swing legs left, right, left, right, left (7, 8) step down left and right.

### Combo THREE

- Right shuffle, left mambo or pivot (8)
- Left peg leg x 2 left basic (8)
- Hoops x 4 (left, right, left, right) or hoops around the step (16)

- Left shuffle, right mambo or pivot (8)
- Right peg leg x 2 right basic (8)
- Hoops x 4 (right, left, right, left) or hoops around the step (16)
