In the first half I tried teaching a bit of style points on the ladies chain. The big demo during "Out & About" featured three parts -- the offer, the twirl, and the stabilization. And I used the line I've heard elsewhere: "If you crank the woman, you get a cranky woman."
We then had several brand new people come in during the middle of the break, so I started the second half with 20% raw beginners. This required some interesting on-the-fly adjusting, as the old program went out the window.
"Stars in the Barn" is a dance that works, but I'm not sure if I like it:Stars in the Barn
