Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:

Teaching Tips:

E.) Action always starts with the right trade unless the caller says LEFT Swing Thru, then the action always starts with a left.

More teaching suggestions:
— This is an “if you can” call. If you cannot, you must stand still.
— Except for Alamo Rings, half of the dancers must stand still during one of the turns.
— There must be two turns – usually End Pairs then Centers, but sometimes Centers then End Pairs.

Quick quote: “Left half turn, right half turn”
