Teaching Tips:

(Anything) and Roll
A) Another “suffix call” added onto the end of another call.
B) You can Roll if you were turning at the end of your part of the preceding call.
C) Roll is done “in place” your feet get instantly glued to a turntable (lazy Suzan) and you’ll individually turn 1/4 more (“one more wall”) in the direction your body was already turning.
D) Start with 1 or 2-person calls: Face Right, Face In, Star Thru, Slide Thru, Touch 1/4, Trade, Cast Off 3/4.
E) After you’ve completed the “Roll” reestablish new formations. Take hands if applicable.
F) If you were touching someone’s hand before the “Roll” (i.e., you were side-by-side with them), you can’t be touching them after the “Roll”.
G) Not everyone always gets to Roll. Good examples Trade By and Roll, Ping Pong Circulate and Roll.

More teaching suggestions:
— Talk about and demonstrate how to determine the direction to Roll.
— If all dancers are turning the same way, it helps to say “All are rolling to the Right (or Left)”

Quick quote: “On your spot, individually turn another quarter”
