Single-to-Double Convertible Vertical

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15732)

My intermediate step class at a new gym had not done vertical in about 2 years, and no one had done double step before, so I created a set of single vertical combos that I transitioned to double vertical after a couple weeks. Lots of smiles and compliments received!

Note: combos 1 & 2 start on the small end of the step, 3 & 4 start on the left side - if you like to go back to the top to review combos between breakdowns (like me), I used a knee back to the short end/alternating knees for a 32-count to bring them back. All combos are self-reversing.

Combos 1-4, Single Vertical

Combo 1 (32 counts) - start facing the short end

* My T-step is a step up right/left (1/2), straddle down (3/4), step up right/left (5/6), exit rear (7/8); option to hop/knee back up on top on counts 5-6 for intensity

Combo 2 (32 counts) - start facing the short end

Combo 3 (32 counts) - really starts on the long side of the bench, but works from the short end also

Combo 4 (32 counts) - same start as #3

Combos 1-4, morphed for Double Vertical

I call the left step home, right step away

Combo 1 (32 counts) - starts on home (left) step, facing short end

Combo 2 (32 counts) - starts on home step, facing short end

Combo 3 (32 counts) - starts on home step, facing front along the long side of the step, but can work facing the short end

Combo 4 (32 counts) - same as #3

I hope you enjoy these! Especially if your class is "double-shy", it's a good way to transition them, building from combos that they have practiced before. Any questions, please email!
