Hi, I'm Emily Larew. We're continuing on with our beginning tap combination. We're now on counts five through eight where we're going to be doing a flap step into an Elvis kick. So here we go. We just flipped on four, what I'm going to have you do is step forward, flap forward on your left foot. Five, you're going to pivot to the back, step on your right foot, six, flap again on your seven, on your left foot, seven. And to the back corner, make sure it's not to the side but to the corner, you're going to kick it, flick kick, flick, then you're going to turn on four, swivel your hips, and and go forward huh! And hit it again. Alright, so we're going to go kick, then step on your right foot, twist those knees to the right as you throw your arms to the left and your head switches over to the right as well. So we just flicked on four. We flapped, five, six, seven, and eight. And you hit it strong. Alright, make sure you're on your toe, get it in there and sit into that right hip so we really look like Elvis. Let's put that together. Five, six, seven, eight. A one, two, three, bop, bop bah! A one, and, two, and three, and four, five, six, seven, and eight. One, and two, and three, and four, and five, six, seven, and eight. One, and two, and three, and four, five, six, seven, and eight. One, and two, and three, and four, and five, six, seven, and eight. Good job, that was your beginning tap combination five through eight.
