Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:

Teaching Tips:

Coordinate
A) #4 dancers in the column make eye contact – you’ll meet in the very center. This whole call will “center on you”.
B) #2 dancers in the column will be alone after the Circulate 1½.
C) “No, No, Yes” verbal styling identifies who to stop with on the Circulate 1½.
D) Very centers (those original #4) will “veer out” to become the ends of lines, the lonesome dancers (original #2) will
“move up” like in a Spin the Top.

More teaching suggestions:
— The #1 dancer in the column will be trading with the #3 dancer in their column. It helps it the #1 dancers look back as they do their first circulate to establish eye contact with the #3 dancer.

Quick quote: “Circulate once and a half, three pairs trade, very centers and ends move up.”
