9. Rocking left turn in place.

Two separate patterns alternate to make an interesting spot turn to the left.

Pattern #1 From a side L, forward R, the leader starts a syncopated rocking turn forward L, back R, small step side L. Follower’s footwork is the opposite: side R, backward L, then rocking back R, forward L and side R. The rocking sequence for both is danced in the (1, 3, 1) rhythm.

Pattern #2 Leaders step forward R, hooking behind L and turning left, back R. Followers step back L, side R, forward L in a short segment of the grapevine pattern, around the leader. Both dancers step in a (1 ,3, 1) rhythm.
