Class #26 March 23, 2017

We had a full house tonight!

Charlie taught the following calls:

  • Roll

This call is appended to another call such as Swing Thru. For example, a caller would call ‘swing thru and roll’. The definition of roll is the following ‘If you had turning motion on your last part of the previous call, then turn an extra 1/4 (90°) in place toward that direction.’

Charlie (and Gary too!) also reviewed the following:

  • Spin Chain Thru
  • Spin Chain the Gears

These two calls are a challenge for even the experienced dancer! I was paying closer attention to these calls tonight and observed the following:

With Spin Chain Thru, at any given time, one or more couples is doing the following sequence:

Half, Three quarters, Half, Three quarters

With Spin Chain the Gears, at any given time, one or more couples is doing the following sequence:

Half, Three quarters, Half, Three quarters, Half, Three quarters

Our Sheriff, Mary Kay was back! Glad to hear she is on the mend! In honor of her husband's hip replacement, she fined those who had not had a hip replacement!

We have a new class calendar in the back of the room. It covers April, May, and June.

In place of class next week, we will have a 50th Anniversary Dance. It starts at 7 pm and will be in the large hall of the Murray Community center. It promises to be a great evening so please join us! The singles board will be in operation!

After the 50th Anniversary Dance, Judy and Gary Milton will host an after party at their home. All are welcome!
