Teaching Tips:

Flutterwheel/Reverse Flutterwheel
A.) For Reverse Flutterwheel, dancer on the left side of a couple goes to the center with left arm holds.
B.) For both actions the ones going into the center use outside arm holds to wheel across picking up the opposite dancer with near hands returning to the starting spot.
C.) Action can be described as a two-finned water wheel.
D.) Dancer not leading the action can follow the leader after leading them towards the center.
E.) Don’t let go of the arm hold in the center until you are ready to back out at the starting spot.

More teaching suggestions:
— Demonstrate the action. Emphasize the center forearm handhold, and the need to anticipate the pick-up by beginning to move ahead.

Quick quote: “Left dancer use left forearm, right dancer ready to lead new partner to other side”
