hook: A new call with a sequence of arches.

by: Moose Flores

formation: improper

Designate 1's and 2's
Encourage tight formations in A1 to complete it fully in 16 beats.
Colonnade is a new sequence. It takes 16 beats and ends with everyone where they began, like a Hey. Have 2's also practice the colonnade during the walkthrough.

A1 8
circle left 3 places
star right 4 places
A2 16
Colonnade - "1's Arch: Colonnade!" +
B1 16
partners balance & swing
B2 8
ladles chain
cross trails - partners across the set right shoulders, neighbors along the set left shoulders ⁋
  • Colonnade: ones (join right hands to) make an arch and hold that arch for the entire figure. Gentlespoons trade by right shoulders with gentlespoon two going under the arch. Ladles trade by right shoulders with ladle two going under the arch. [stop here for 1/2 colonnade] Gentlespoons trade by right, ladles trade by right. Each trade has 4 beats of music, so there's no need to rush.
