Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:
First Couple Go Left/Right, Next Couple Go Left/Right
A.) As a couple with ends as a pivots, wheel the given direction to look at the wall behind you.
B.) Take hands quickly after completing the action to establish formations.
C.) Don’t go too far, only a two wall change, not three.
More teaching suggestions:
— Since this usually follows Double Pass Thru, emphasize the need for current partners to take hands and establish the couple before they start to turn.
