More advanced dancers can vary steps with turns (single and double)in place of grapevines or slide, slide, slide (The Electric Slide)-

 

Charleston kicks (14 & 18) touch behind or hand to floor (16 & 20) -

 

Hop may be substituted with Tour en l'air (turn in the air) or double tour.

 

This is the basic framework for the dance. Once it is learned, variations on the theme are listed in the complete choreography and even this is only a working model. Other variations are acceptable as long as they stay within the framework.
