That was a fun filled first Lesson! Congratulations to the new dancers for advancing through some of the basic figures of square dancing. We covered a lot of ground, and here's all the figures and movements we covered:
Circle left and circle right
Forward and back (or up to middle and back)
Promenade (single file promenade, couples promenade, and wrong way promenade)
Right and left grand
Ladies chain across
That's impressive. We'll review all this at Lesson 2 and add a few more figures. You may be asking if there are any internet sites that you can go to see what we did. Good question. Here are two sites that of are great assistance in demonstrating the figures and movements.
- look under "Basic 1"
- look under "Review Mainstream Lessons"
See you on Sunday. Kirk Rockerbie
