Step-by-Step Instructions:
0:10 - Demo
1:51 - #1 List of All Moves
2:03 - #2 Choreography Learning Strategy: memory & transitions
2:31 - #3 Shorty George to Apple Jacks
3:24 - #4 Apple Jacks to Boogie Drops
3:51 - #5 Boogie Drops to Suzie Q left
4:31 - #6 Suzie Q left to Suzie Q right
4:57 - #7 Suzie Q right to Lock Turn
5:53 - #8 New Move OMG!
6:50 - #9 New Move to Swivels forward
8:02 - #10 Swivels forward to scooting back

- Many (but not all) these steps start on 8. Practice your counting, and watch the demo to make sure you've got it.
- Memorize the order of the moves. Practice them over and over in your head.
- Practice each transition separately.
- Don't rush. You're gonna want to, but resist. The slow tempo leaves "empty spaces" for you to fill out with juicy movement.
- We purposely did not demo this routine showing the back view. That doesn't train your memory. I'm serious about learning, not giving you a crutch. It may be frustrating, but think of it as tough love. Heavier on the love than the toughness.
- Practice, practice, practice. This is the PERFECT sort of routine to work on these moves I've been teaching.
- Have fun! But you already knew that.
