Hi, my name is Victor Sho, and this is my assistant Oska Ossevato, and we are going to teach you an intermediate technical step combo. So what I want you to do, is get grounded right here. We're going to start off with a double step going right, left. Five, six, five, six, seven, eight. Six, five, six, seven, eight. Six, five, six, seven, eight. Then you're going to do two thigh hits. Then you're going to do another single. Then you're going to do a hand clap. So you're going to go right, left, right, left. Five, six, seven, and.

Now after this clap right here, you're going to shift your weight over here as you take another single stomp. Put your hands up here, do another thing hit, right here. Then what you're going to do is bring your weight back over center. Take another single stomp with your left and do another hand clap. So after this hand clap right here, you're going to go lean right, bop, bop, boom, bop. So when you combine it, it's going to sound something like this. You're going to go boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop.

A little faster, five, six, five, six, seven, and boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop. So after you do that, what you want to do is that same combo that we just did, two times. So you're going to go boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop. So now all your weight is kind of like on your left leg right here. 'ause what's going to happen is, you're going to take three stomps, right, left, right, leaning over with your swimming' out to the right.

So from here you're going to go boom, boom, boom. So after you do this clap...clap, boom, boom, boom. Five, six, seven and clap, boom, boom, boom. So when combine that to what we just did, it sounds like this boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, boom. One more time, five, six, five, six, seven, and boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, boom. So that phrase right there, we want to do it twice. We're going to go five, six, five, six, seven, and da, da, da, da, da, da, da, dada, da ,da, boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, boom.

Now we want to loop this, so in order to loop it, we have to find our transitional moment which is right here. After you go bop, boom, boom, boom, you're going to do another thigh clap, bop, bop. Which is how we pretty much started that first step. Now this is how we loop it, cause we're going to do that same step right here to continue into the second step, which is the same thing, you know what I mean? After you go right here, you're going to go clap, boom, boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, bop, bop, boom, bop, boom, boom, boom. That's it. What we're going to do right now, we're just going to demonstrate it, little bit more fast paced, so you can see it and then fall out.

OK. Five, six, five, six, seven, and. And that's how you do an intermediate technical step.
