Ready to add a little styling and variations? For those teaching experienced beginners, here are a few ideas: • Give the step touches a funky look: Step to the diagonals, leading with the hip and shoulder, using a larger than normal step Take the arms away from body to low V on the ‘step.’ Bring the arms in on the ‘touch.’ These steps are now on right and left diagonals rather that straight forward (cool) • Finish the stylized step touches on the left diagonal and do the rocking chair facing 10:00 • Replace the weave with a 3 step turn.
