Note: This dance is based around a classic cha-cha pattern called the Pase’o pattern. I do not know the origin of this section and I cannot take credit for this set of counts. A special thanks to Jo Thompson and A. T. Kinson for bringing the Pase’o pattern to my attention and for all their advice and encouragement.
Note: Placed 4th at Worlds 2000.
STEP, FULL TURN RONDE, BEHIND SIDE CROSS, SIDE ROCK ¼ TURN, CHA-CHA FORWARD
1-3Step forward on left foot, full weight on left, pivot full turn (full turn) on left, sweeping right leg to the right and behind left
This is easier to execute if the support leg is bent and the sweeping foot is kept close to the floor
4&5Step right foot behind left, step left to left side, step right across and in front of left
6&7Rock to left side with left foot, turning right knee in, weight still on left, turn ¼ turn to right transferring weight onto right leg
8&1Step forward with left foot, lock right behind left, step forward with left
PASE`O PATTERN
FORWARD BREAK, ¼ TURNING CHASSE, WEAVE, ¼ TURN, BACK LOCK STEP
2-3Rock forward on right, recover onto left
4&5Turn ¼ to right, chasse side, together, side
6-7Step left foot across in front of right (angling body to right), ¼ turn to left, stepping back with right
8&1Step back with left, lock right across left, step back left
POINT, FLICK, FORWARD TRIPLE, FULL TURN SPIRAL TO RIGHT, RIGHT STEP BALL TURN
&2-3Step back with right, point left toe forward angling body to right, step left next to right and flick right foot up at rear right diagonal with bent knee (squaring the body up)
4&5Step right foot forward, lock left foot behind right, step forward with right
6-7Step forward on left, spiral full turn to right full weight on left
8&1Fall forward onto right, step forward onto left, pivot ½ turn to right
On completion of the pivot toe out to the right, to prepare for the next sequence
FORWARD CROSS BREAK, SIDE MAMBOS RIGHT AND LEFT, HOLD AND CLAP
2-3Cross rock left across and in front right, recover onto right
4&5Rock left foot to left side, step in place onto right, step left next to right, taking weight on left
6&7Rock right foot to right side, step in place onto left, step right next to left, taking weight on right
8Hold and clap
REPEAT
The first three counts are tricky to begin with. To get the feel of the action, substitute the spiral ronde with the following
1Step forward on the left
2-3Sweep the right leg forward and round in an arc to the right
This will have the same feel and flow as the original choreography and will place the right foot in the correct position for the next sequence. This is acceptable until the correct balance and leg control is achieved
OPTION FOR ENDING
The hold and clap on count 8 was originally included as a recover before the spiral ronde. Try replacing it with a forward triple (8 &) into the new wall, it flows nicely.
OPTIONAL ADVANCED START
Following the full turn spiral ronde (1,2,3), with the right foot in the position for the „behind, side, cross“. Continue turning to the right into a reverse ¾ pivot, transferring the weight onto the right foot (4,5) and then sweep the left foot round (still continuing that turn 6,7) with a ½ ronde into the forward triple (8&1).
