Teaching Tips:

Pass Thru
A.) Right shoulders!
B.) Once you pass them, stop.
C.) Rejoin hands with someone beside you if present.
D.) Don’t keep walking. Once you have passed them you can’t pass any more.
E.) After passing, adjust slightly to the right to end back to back with the one passed.

Teaching suggestions:

— Raise your right hand to your right shoulder.  Pass the dancer in front of you with those shoulders close together.

Quick quote: “Move forward, passing right shoulders, go by one person”
