Welcome to Square Dance. I am looking forward to teaching you the pleasure of modern square dance. My emphasis will be on having fun, and maybe a few cookies. In this blog I will be able to give you a review of the last lesson and a heads up for your next week.

January 13 - Lesson Log
Hi everyone. Hope you enjoyed class. Here are the new figures we covered.
Starting formation - Completed Double Pass Thru
The lead dancers separate and move away from each other in a three quarter (270 degrees) circle.
When each lead dancer approaches another lead dancer from the other side of the square, they both reach with outside hands, blending into a couple handhold as they continue into the center of the square to become a couple facing in.
Each trailing dancer follows the dancer in front, and ends directly behind that same dancer.
See “Mainstream”, Cloverleaf
2.Pass to the Center
Starting formation – couples facing each other (e.g., one couple looking, the other couple looking out).
Both couples Pass Thru. The couples looking out of the square will do a Partner Trade.
See “Mainstream”, Pass to the Center
3.Spin Chain Thru
Starting formation - parallel waves.
Each end and the adjacent center dancer turn one half (180°). The new centers of each ocean wave turn three quarters (270°) to make a new ocean wave across the set. The two centers of this wave turn one half (180°) to reform the wave across the set. The two outside pairs of dancers of the center wave now turn three quarters (270°) to join the waiting ends and form parallel ocean waves.

On Sunday January 20 we will cover 4 new figures:
