I'm sure there is already a thread on this somewhere, but I'm wondering what are your favorite dances for those in the 4-10 year old range. Specifically, dances that are not mixers since many younger dancers prefer to stay with a particular partner the whole time. I have a number of good ones already (Alabama Gal, Haste to the Wedding, La Bastringue, etc), but I'd like to expand my existing collection of dances geared towards "little ones".

You can reduce the chaos slightly by getting the band to stop randomly during the circling, at which point everyone grabs a partner; the band waits a few seconds while everyone finds a partner and decides whether they are Heads or Sides, then gives two notes and starts the next Heads Gallop. I modify it to give a bit more recovery time: Start in a big square around the room A1: Head couples take partner in a ballroom hold and gallop eight steps into the centre and back A2: Sides gallop eight steps into the centre and back B1: All the men form an outer circle facing in, while the ladies form an inner circle facing out. All circle left then find a new partner B2: Partner Swing - stop early enough to decide whether you are now Heads or Sides - Heads get ready to gallop There is also The Muffin Man Jig: http://www.ceilidhcalling.co.uk/danceviewpage.php?view=1&id=11 Happy dancing, John John Sweeney, Dancer, England j...@modernjive.com 01233 625 362 & 07802 940 574 http://www.modernjive.com for Modern Jive Events & DVDs http://www.contrafusion.co.uk for Dancing in Kent _______________________________________________ List Name: Callers mailing list List Address: Callers@lists.sharedweight.net Archives: https://email@example.com/
