Teaching Tips:

Double Pass Thru
A.) Everyone walk single file past the ones looking at you.
B.) Pass two right shoulders.
C.) Can be explained using directional English; everyone pass the ones you are facing.

More teaching suggestions:

— Make the dancers on the left side aware that they should adjust to their left one body width to allow enough space for those in the center to comfortably pass by each other.

— At the end of the call original couples reconnect to make a compact Completed Double Pass Thru.

Quick quote: “Everyone pass two dancers”
