Choreography for Patter Teaching with Singing Call Options:

Teaching Tips:

Track II
A) Dance them thru “Leaders Trade, Pass Thru, Trade By, Step to a wave” or “Leaders Trade, Pass to the Center, Centers Pass Thru, Step to a wave” a few times to get the traffic pattern.
B) Another good call to demo first.
C) Lead 2 wind up in the far wave looking out, Trailing 2 wind up in the near wave looking in.
D) If you are a Trailer, you will stay behind the person in front of you for the entire call.
E) Left-side dancers have the “outside track” (and will move clockwise), Right-side dancers have the “inside track” (and will move counter-clockwise) – towards each other, follow the right shoulder passing rule.
F) Have trailers put a hand on the leader’s shoulder and do the “Tandem Partner Trade” then Extend Twice.
G) Move towards the person beside you (not away from them as you would in a Cloverleaf).
H) Keep hands in a ready position.

More teaching suggestions:
— Attempt to include some choreography using a preceding call other than Double Pass Thru.

Quick quote: “Left-siders go wide around outside, Right-siders make a tight left turn on inside track”

Sound Effect: Like a Train Whistle
