Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:

Teaching Tips:

Extend from 1/4 Tag
A.) Everyone let go and step forward to establish a wave with the outsiders using the same hands.
B.) Centers step through to a new wave.
C.) Outsiders have to let go, slide apart with hands ready for waves.

More teaching suggestions:

Extend from Parallel Waves:
— Those facing in move straight ahead to the new center wave (Ends end as ends).
— Those facing out move forward and adjust sideways to become a couple facing out.

Extend with Left-Hand Waves:
— Once a left-hand wave is established, Extend maintains the left-handedness.

Quick quote: “Follow the leader to move ahead one place”
