Teaching Tips:

Veer Left / Veer Right
A.) As a couple, slide over and forward.
B.) Couples together don’t let go of near hands.
C.) No wall change.

More Teaching suggestions:
— Clarify the differences between Lead Right and Veer Right particularly when starting from a squared set. In Lead Right the couple turns 1/4 to the Right, while in Veer Right the motion is on a forward diagonal with no turning.

Quick quote: “Diagonally forward”
