A2 long lines Forward\_and\_Back

Bradley Smith Notes: Originally, the last figure of this dance was a Neighbor Do-si-do 1 1/2, but I usually swap it for the ring balance and pass through to make the progression as simple as possible for inexperienced dancers.

Mixer from Badley

Waltz

Frederich Reel

by: Tom Hinds

introduces moves: down the hall, up the hall

formation: improper

A1 long lines forward_and_back
ladles allemande left 1½
A2 partners balance & swing
B1 down the hall and turn as couples
up the hall and bend into a ring
B2 circle left 3 places
neighbors swing

Bradley Smith Notes: The first time through the dance, the Ladies Allemande Left in A1 is with the couple that you start the dance with. Every time after that, the Ladies have to look to the right to find the next Lady to Allemande. It's a very simple progression that just requires reminding the Ladies to look for the next Lady in line after the Forward and Back

Patty Cake Polka (recorded music)

Bradley Smith Notes:
The first time through the dance, the gents do-si-do in A1 is with the couple that you start the dance with. Every time after that, the gents have to look to the left to find the next gent to do-si-do. It's a very simple progression that just requires reminding Gents that they must look to the left every time through the dance after the first to find the next Gent to Do-si-do.
