All right, what's going on you y'all? So we're about to do Bad, Michael Jackson's Bad album. And we're going to take you through those main four counts of eight. Here we go. So, you're going to go; step with left leg, one, across the right, step with the right on two, and you're going to snap. Your snap is coming off of that right foot. So you're reverbing, and the left leg is coming up to this position. For my technical dancers, aposse (SP?). So, you have, you're going to say, you have one, snap it down, two, three, four. One of Michael's favorite steps, four, five, six. You're going to hit the right shoulder, seven. As you look to your left, seven, come back, eight. So you have [makes wooshing noises] let's go back. So you have one, snap, two, then three, hit four, cross five. The right foot is going to come out on the five. Face the back six, hit seven, right shoulder and you're looking towards your left side, eight. Then you're going to go, one, two, swerve, three, four, five and a six and a seven and a eight.

Left leg is out, left arm is out, right is coming across up top. Two, three and four. On the end four you look, you look. You're going to cross turn with your left foot. Five, come down six, roll the head, seven, eight. And that's the end of that. Let's go back. So, we did, seven, eight. We have one, two, throw, three, hah, five, and a six, and a seven, eight. One and two, and three, and four, five, six, seven, tap. Yeah.
