Teaching Tips:

(Anything) and Spread
A) This is a “suffix call” – it’s added onto calls you already know.
B) From only 4 actives first, e.g., Heads Star Thru and Spread.
C) From Tandems next, e.g., Wheel and Deal and Spread.
D) From Waves, e.g., Centers Trade, Acey Deucey, Fan the Top. Later with Follow Your Neighbor.

More teaching suggestions:
— It is important to say “and Spread” before the dancers should begin the spreading action.

Quick quote for actives: “Actives slide apart.”
Quick quote for waves or lines: “Centers slide apart.”
Quick quote for tandem application: “Leaders slide apart.”
