Sue's Step #16

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16885)

Hi folks

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

'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!

FIRST BLOCK (64 COUNTS - changes lead)

SECOND BLOCK (64 COUNTS - does not change lead)

NAMED STEPS:

'Knee + turnback' left (8 counts, does not change lead): knee left on bench (4 counts.) + knee right on ground facing southwest 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, changes 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 (north-west) corner of the room, as if there were a bench there (note: counts 7,8 bring you back to the bench, facing south from north of the bench)

'Double merry-go-round right' (12 count move, does not change lead): start with counts 1,2 as if you were doing a turnstep right, then walk/turn four more counts (counts 3-6) around the end of the bench (keep rotating the same way you started to rotate with the turnstep) to end up on the opposite side of the bench, and then do all six counts again (counts 7-12) to end up on the same side of the bench you started on

'Overturn' right (4 counts, does not change lead): half of a revolving door right

'K-step' left (8 counts, from behind bench, facing right wall the whole time, looks sort of like the legs of a letter 'K', does not change lead): left foot on bench, right foot on ground near left foot, left foot on ground well forward of right foot, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was, left foot on bench, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was, left foot on ground well behind right foot, right foot on ground in about the same place as it was

ALTERNATE LAYERS:

* These two repeater straddles can be two 'twister' repeaters. The right lead version of a 'twister repeater' goes like this: count 1 right foot on bench, count 2 left knee up, count 3 left foot taps down behind and on the other side of the bench (slight turn of body counterclockwise), count 4 left knee up, count 5 left foot taps down where it started (slight turn of body clockwise), count 6 left knee up into half-hop straddle (keep turning clockwise 180 degrees more), counts 7-8 left,right feet down-down in straddle facing right/east wall. There is lots of turning in this one, so definitely need to remind folks to unweight the foot on the bench. In this combo, there are two repeater straddles - you either need to do two 'twister' versions or two regular versions - you can't do one of each!
