July Step Combo 3 of 4: Party Time


In this series of four posts, I’m providing a different step combo with teaching progression – as best I can explain my mad methodology!  Enjoy!

Combo 3:

1/2 V Shake(4) R lead
hop 1/4 turn off the end (4) R lead, exit to the right of the step
split basic (8) L lead
repeater turn (8) L lead
hop turn (4) R lead
4 party marches (4) L lead

Definitions:
V-Shake –   
(1) Step up R
(2) Step up L wide (like you are starting a V step) 
(3-6) shake your hips RLRL
(78) Exit RL

1/2 V-shake  –
(1) Step up R
(2) Step up L wide (like you are starting a V step) 
(34) shake your hips RL

Split Basic –  
(12) Step up RL
(3) tap the floor behind you (or lunge back) R
(4) step on the step R
(5) tap the floor behind you (or lunge back) L
(6) step on the step L
(78) Exit RL

Repeater turn –
3 knee repeater the same as usual, but gradually rotate 1/4 turn around the corner of the bench

Party Marches –
march while shimmying your shoulders and partying with your hips

Teaching progression:

March on top of the bench RLRL (4) + hop R (2) [step R and hop R on top of the bench] +
exit LR to home(2) + 2 basics L.  Reverse and repeat as needed.

Repeater knee R, 1 hop L march 4 steps RLRL.  Repeat as needed.

Add together to create the full combo skeleton:
march on top of the bench hop exit.
2 basics
repeater knee
1 hop march on the floor

Now you will start to layer in all the fun stuff.  I add them in this order:
Party marches in place of the last marches on the floor
Split Basics
Direction changes
V Shakes

Have fun!
