Egg Beater
  1. Use 2 lambada steps to separate from the lady
  2. Repeat twice:
    Open Break → Cuddle turn → When the lady turns and sits on guy's left leg, the guy steps with right foot out → unwrap.
  3. 2 lambada steps to finish
  • Man goes down one knee at a time and then lays down backwards and the lady does the lambada while walking over him. She'll bring her hands to her neck and the raise them up over her head. She passes all the way over and past him, turns around, and passes over him again reaching back (and out) with both hands. The guy grabs both her hands and the lady steps to one side of him and pulls him back up and them brings both his arms around her.
Starter Step
  • The guy leads the lady all the way around him clockwise with his left hand, and then the lady drags her right hand around the man's waist while he turns counterclockwise.
Jump, Lift, and Lay Back
  • Both partners grab hold of each other at the elbows with the lady's arms on top. Then, the lady jumps up on the guy and grabs hold of him with her knees. The guy uses both hands to support the center of her back. The guy spins clockwise, and the lady moves her arms in the air, and then raises her arms straight over her head with hands together (like a back dive). The lady then begins to lean back and the guy bends down deep on his knees to counterbalance her lay back.
Clockwise Circle Pattern
  • The lady is to the man's outside right parallel position. The man's right hand holds around lady to the shoulder blade. Ladies right hand on top of the man's left shoulder near the neck. The man's left hand either out, on the hip, or holding onto the lady's right arm. The lady's left hand will be straight out, then later, on the man's right shoulder to close the pattern.
Double-wrap and Drop with Axial Spin
  • With a 2-hand hold, lead her into an inside turn while traveling around her the opposite direction and keeping both hands. The man's left hand will be held high, and the lady will be on the man's right side. Then circle clockwise with the man traveling forward and the lady traveling backward. Then spin her out keeping both hands until the very end of the spin when the upper hand is released. Then, send her all the way across on a double roll-out. Then, wrap her in and she will turn TWICE when she wraps in. Then the guy holds her lower back with his right hand. The lady makes a small hop, crosses her ankles, and allows her feet to go under the guy's legs. As she falls, her body will rotate and she should raise her free hand straight above her head.
Cape Position Choreography
  • Ladies, when the man is behind you, grab his hands and pull them up to either side of your head.
  • Guys, when she has her back to you, you can hold her waist on both sides, and she can put her arms back around your head.
