Do a 3 turn, do the hook and do the spin. I'll get it in a couple of lessons.
But, and this is the critical point, all the coaches want me to do a back cross-step forward entry into the 3 turn.
No problem with that, I've been doing back cross-step forward into 3 turns for years.
Problem? When I do the back cross and step forward I don't know whether I'm doing a right 3, or a left 3, and furthermore, if I end up with a left spin or a right one.
What's coming out of this back cross: Left spin or Right spin?
Coach says, "Go ahead."
I ask, "So for a left spin which back cross do I do?'
Coach steps through it. BACK-STEP FORWARD-SPIN. 'That one."
For reasons known only to God, I DO THE OPPOSITE BACK CROSS. And I still end up with the left spin.
Yeah, either I'm adding an extra step, or I step forward facing out of the circle, my body is going to get the spin my coach wants (as long as I don't think about at all!)
PS; Last night out of nowhere, I started doing a right forward spin, then somehow switching to a left forward spin. It's not pretty, but there's possibilities.
