Mix – Teaching

CALLERLAB Program: Advanced 1

Teaching Resource for Mix

Links:   Define Analyze Module

Teaching Suggestions:

A) Everyone changes their facing direction by 180 degrees.
B) Those doing the Cross Run should make a large enough semi-circle to allow space for the ends to slide in along the original General Line.
C) If the centers are facing the same direction they apply the Crossing Rule which is “the dancer on the right has the right of way” and goes in front of the dancer on the left.
D) “Centers Cross Run” includes an inward sliding action for the Ends. That should be completed before doing the “Centers Trade”.

Quick quote: “Centers Cross Run, New Centers Trade.”
