Teaching Tips:

Trade Family
A.) Designated dancers move forward to take the other dancers position ending in reverse facing direction.
B.) Two types of trades, with or without hands held.
C.) If facing the same direction, pass right shoulders as you go around each other.

More teaching suggestions:
