Around the World Step

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15902)

This is an idea I came up with for my Kickbutt Step class. When I have a class of 6-8 intermediate to advanced steppers, I pull this out to change up the usual forum of step training!!

First of all, we set our steps up 2 side by side in a circle of 8 steps as shown below:


       seventh      sixth
       . . . .     . . . .
       .     .     .     .
 My    . . . .     . . . .
Home     (for example)       fifth
....                         ....
.  .                         .  .
.  .                         .  .
....                         ....
first                        fourth
....                         ....
.  .                         .  .
.  .                         .  .
....                         ....
       second        third
       . . . .      . . . .
       .     .      .     .
       . . . .      . . . .

The step you start on is considered your "home" step. You will start out facing each other and warm up with your favorite warmup patterns. There is a set of combos for each step and you will travel to each step starting with a right lead moving to the next step and when you end up back at home, you can start over with a left lead moving left to the next step. This is optional depending on the level of your participants and the time restraint. I also use a variety of risers on the steps and remember if you are changing steps at a corner, you may have to add a curve to your step!!

Have fun!I tried to explain this as best as I could, please email me with any questions!
