Make-up your missed classes:
You can make up in any Friday class this session or next.  Their class is 7 to 8pm, different than your time.  I’m going to give a special level 2 discount to everyone who has perfect attendance meaning they either come to every class or make up every class in THIS session.

Written List of Moves in choreography routine:
Please refer to videos below for practice so you practice correctly, you will do 2 counts of 8 of each step:

1.) Step tap
(step on your right foot first and tap your left toe not heal — keep continuing alternating sides)
2.) step cross
3.) Slide (slide to the right first, then left, keep going — remember to lean your upper body towards the foot that is dragging)
4.) Turn — will be added next class
5.) Shoulder Shimmy (1st 8 counts are the guys way — 2nd 8 counts girls do the girl shimmy — remember the guys moves are all unisex)
6.) C-walk variation doubles (bend and jump the right foot out onto the heal — twice on right — then twice on left — then 1 more 8 count)
7.) C-walk variation singles (same thing as above but once on each foot rather than twice)
8.) cross step
(pigeon toe in, turn body, and bring other foot behind) — see how to video below
9.) clown shoes — see how to video below
10.) Chicken head
— see how to video below
