Download RTF file: Facing Trios Patter Ideas
Here are some ideas for “patter” calling to trios.
Or try combining some of these to create your own Facing Trio Dance:
— All six Circle Left (or Circle Right)
— Center two Circle Left while the others Circle Right around them.
— Centers make a three-dancer circle with the ends to their right (or to their left).
— All six make a Right-Hand Star (or make a Left-Hand Star).
— Boys only (or Girls only) Star Right (or Star Left).
— Two center dancers place hands on each otherâ€™s shoulders and crouch down while others make a Right-Hand Star over the top.
— Centers Star Right with their right hand two then Star Left with their left hand two.
Dosado and Arm Turns:
— Opposites Dosado (just ends, just centers, or all dancers) (or Right or Left Arm Turn)
— Right ends (or Left ends) Dosado (or Arm Turn).
— Centers turn opposite right, turn their right opposite left, turn their left opposite right and original opposite left to home.
Lines of Three:
— Outside dancer of ONE Line lead that line around the TWO Line.
— TWOâ€™s make arches while ONEâ€™s dive under (pass right shoulder).
— Lines of 3 together do a half Dosado (or Dosado once and a half) to face a new line.
— Lines Weave (all 3 together half Dosado then left half Dosado) to face the third.
— Single File Promenade to the right around the other line and face the next three.
