Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:
A.) Action can be explained with directional English.
B.) Step in between the two dancers, move past them, and wait for the next call.
C.) Inactive dancers slide back together after they have been split apart.
More teaching suggestions:
— The next call should be given quickly so it can be danced easily and with good timing and flow by the designated dancers.
