Night One Recap


Hello Everyone, sorry for the delay in sending this post… It was a busy week as well as the power outage caused by the wind storm did not help my progress. 

What we did last week:

How to get back into the dance after a breakdown during a patter call.


A) Square up at home with your original partner.
B) Head ladies take you corners hand 
C) Head couples back up to align with the side couple to form lines at the sides

I will pick you up and get you back into the dance. 


Half Sashay

Definition: Dance action: Dancers exchange places without changing facing directions. Dancer on the right side steps to the left while the dancer on the left steps back, side steps to the right, then steps forward, ending as a couple.

Partner Trade

Dance action: Two dancers exchange places by walking forward in a semicircle, passing right shoulders if they start facing the same direction. (See “General: Conventions and Rules: Passing Rule”.) Dancers end facing the opposite direction from their original facing directions.

Pass The Ocean (from 1/2 Sashayed Couples 

Dance action: Pass Thru; Face your Partner; Step To A Wave
