Sue's Step #12

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16143)

Hi folks

Here are two 64 count blocks that fit nicely together. The first one does not change lead, and the second one does, so you can put them both together and they change lead.

Counts 1 - 32 of the first block are adapted from Carolyn's really fun class at 24 Hour Fitness in Hermosa Beach and counts 1-16 of the second combo are from Fred Hoffman at IDEA this year in Las Vegas - although this name for it came from a student of mine... Thanks to Carolyn and Fred and the student...

'Named' moves are detailed at the end, and alternate layers are given for moves with * by them.

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

Thanks!

- Sue

First Block (64 counts - does not change lead)

Second Block (64 counts - changes lead)

Named steps:

'Double lunge' right (8 counts, does not change lead, I think this is what some folks call a split basic???): up-up right,left, lunge back right, lunge back left, down-down right,left

'Skate for three' right (8 counts, changes lead) from behind bench, faces front whole time in simplest layer: right foot on bench, left foot curl, left foot on bench, right foot curl, right foot on bench, left foot curl, left foot down, right foot down

'Hourglass' left (8 counts, does not change lead): V-step left on the bench + V-step left backwards on the ground without turning ' i.e. still facing forward/north but feet are placed to the back sort of behind the body on counts 6 and 7 ' looks kind of like an hourglass shape

'Knee left + turnback knee' (8 counts, does not change lead): knee left on bench (4 counts) + knee right 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 left + turnback knee' (8 counts, does change lead): overturn left (4 counts), what some would call half of a revolving door) plus keep rotating same direction into a knee left facing the front left corner of the room, as if there were a bench there (note: counts 7,8 bring you back to the bench, facing the back of the room from in front of the bench)

'Crossover' right (4 counts, some folks call this a weave - like an over-the-top, but without the tap, faces same side 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

'Dip around the world' right (16 counts, does not change lead): up-up on bench right, left (counts 1,2) right foot dips/steps on ground in front of bench with body turning slightly towards west wall and left foot steps on bench in place (counts 3,4); right foot steps on bench next to left foot and left foot steps/dips on ground in back of bench (counts 5,6) with body still facing west wall; right foot steps on bench in place and left foot steps on bench next to right with body sort of reversing up to face the back (south) of the room (counts 7,8), right foot dips/steps on ground in back of bench with body turning slightly towards east wall and left foot steps on bench in place (counts 9,10); right foot steps on bench next to left foot and left foot steps/dips on ground in front of bench (counts 11,12) with body facing east wall; right foot steps on bench in place (starting to turn to front of room) and left foot steps on bench next to right (counts 13,14), exit down-down to home right,left (counts 15, 16) - if this is too much turning, see the simpler layer below

'L-U-L' right (also can call it 'L-U-turn-L', 8 counts, does not change lead): knee right off right/east end of bench and turn clockwise as you exit to face the back of the room off the end, knee left and exit to the north to face back/south of room
