Lesotho Step Matrix

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16488)

Another big hello from the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho! Once again, this is just to let anyone who also logs onto this site that there is one more country in the world where someone else looks for inspiration. As mentioned with my Hi-Lo contribution to turnstep.com, my situation is one of a kind being a Reebok qualified Aerobic instructor where there's a huge following for Aerobics yet being qualified/certified is not the main point when it comes to teaching. My greatest challenge is that I have to address each class keeping in mind that there are always "absolute beginners". Every class that I teach has been based on building on the basics and I thought I should share this matrix which is the platform for my Step lessons. By the way, Step is my absolute favourite among all the Group Training/Aerobic Exercises.

Format:

CORE/BASIC MOVE

Basic

V-step

Turnstep

Leg/Ham Curl

Over-The-Top

With each session/lesson I use one box from each row and column to make up five 32-beat blocks for the 50 minute to 1 hour session. This enables me to make sure that the beginners get some fundamentals while the advanced participants (who are usually the minority) get some inspiration to play around and add dimensions to some established movements. There are a lot more variations based on these boxes which I'm sure you can use your imagination to adapt accordingly. I hope this has been of some value to some of you who have also provided guidance to me over time. Please feel free to contact me for comments/questions.
