OVERALLS WEEKLY – 09/10/2020

Overalls Weekly – 09/10/2020

NAME THAT CALL!

The answer to NAME THAT CALL #3 was Wheel Around.

How many of you got it right? 

Your Caller Lab Definition for this week is:

  • Dance action: Dancers raise joined hands to form an arch and exchange places with each other by having the woman walk forward and under the arch along a tight left-turning semicircle. The man walks a slightly wider right-turning semicircle. Dancers have exchanged places, passing right shoulders, and are both facing in the opposite direction from which they started.
  • Ending formation: Couple
  • Timing: 4
  • Styling: Man and woman use a loose hand grip. Outside hands are in natural dance position. For smoothness, the joined hands should move backward slightly while being raised to form the arch; this will give the dancers an initial turning motion toward each other.

Name that call!

You can submit your answer by going to NAME THAT CALL #4 on our website, www.overallssquaredance.org, or our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Overallssquaredance. Why not join us for the fun.

ANOTHER BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Our next BLAST FROM THE PAST was dated December 1st, 2019.  This was the ASDSC 5th Saturday Dane – Salute To Our First Responders.  It was such an honor to have CalFire on hand so we could present them with our certificates of appreciation.  We didn’t know they would actually join us for a line dance.  It was awesome!  Enjoy.

We are really looking forward to seeing and dancing with you all again.  In the meantime, keep in touch. You can also check out our photo album from the dance on our Facebook page by clicking A Salute To Our First Responders
