8 ALL JOIN HANDS AND CIRCLE LEFT,
TEACHING THE DANCE
Teacher joins the circle and says, " All join hands. Now listen to the music and see if you can do just what I say. Hear it? Tap your toe, lightly; keep right in time. Now the other toe.
Face the center, go into the center four steps and back right out. Go in again and this time, shout! Then back out.
Repeat several times; when the children are dancing comfortably, continue as follows:
Face your partner, join both hands (boys place their hands palm up) and walk around in place with your partner. This is called a swing. Now, swing your partner. Stop with the boys on the inside of the circle.
NOTE: All Join Hands and Circle uses the beginning, most basic terms of the American square dance.
