Jacque's Highland Fling

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15916)

32 counts, reversing, "lightly" cross-phrased and tapfree. Horizontal board. This is soooo easy to teach! Breakdown included at the end.

* Highland Fling = step right, kick left (1,2); bend left knee in front of right leg (3); kick (4); exit (7,8)

** Instead of "shuffle-turn around the board", another option: (Have no name for this yet!) - Mambo-Tango? Turning to face East, mambo left on floor (1,2); walk toward West left,right, turning body as you go (3,4); face the back wall and step right leg behind left (5); reverse your turn - spin the other direction to face the front (6,7,8).

Breakdown:

If you want to use up time in class, this can begin with:

Cut to:

Demo:
Highland Fling option in place of 2 knee repeater

Next demo:
Full reverse turn option in place of basic

Now replace the hamcurls:
Cue a "mambo cha cha" and then walk all the way around the board (12)

Demo:
Shuffle-turn around the board option

If you want to do the "Mambo-Tango" instead:
Mambo (1,2): walk back on slight diagonal with no spin (3,4); back mambo (5,6); walk back to home position (7,8)
