by: Michael Fuerst

formation: Becket

Initially have dancers line up improper, and make long waves, with the gentlespoons facing out and the ladles in. Advise dancers that they will momentarily reach this special position. Then have dancers circle left one place to Becket position.

Michael Fuerst Notes: Although seemingly straightforward, some dancers, especially gentlespoons, seem to have trouble positioning themselves correctly for the long wavy lines. Teach the preamble. Emphasize to the gentlespoons that they finish their do-si-do facing out.
