What's up? This is Matt Steffanina, and today I'm going to teach you guys how to put together combinations while shuffling. The first two moves that we're going to combine are the T step and the Running Man.
You're going to start with the T step. While you're going across the floor, when your back knee comes up this is your opportunity to push this bottom leg back and go into the running man. From here you can continue the running man, or you can push this leg back down and go back into your T step. You can go back and forth between these two moves to create tons of combinations.
Now let's add in some kicks. From your running man you're going to take your knee, and as it comes up you're going to kick it forward. From here you can go right back into the running man, or you can add a spin in. To go kick, kick, and then back into the running man.
There are really no rules as far as your combinations go. You just want to make sure that you keep the beat, that you keep your timing going, and that you keep dancing so that your transitions feel natural.
We're going to go half time, and we're going to put together our T step and our running man. We have five, six, seven, eight. Up, down, up, down, up, down, and into your running man. Running man. From here you can keep going in the running man, or you can take this and put it back into your T step. From here you can always drop back into the running man when your knee comes back up. To add in kicks we're going to go from the running man here, and when our knee comes up we're going to kick our foot front. So this is running man, running man, running man, kick, back, back. You can also kick and drop this foot in front.
Again, there' really no rules as long as you stay on the beat. Let's try it a little faster and put some combinations together. Five, six, seven, eight.
