Usage: Note that roles change when dancers turn around at the head or foot of the hall. All dancers need an opportunity to practice the center part. After the walk through in one direction appears to be successful, have all dancers Pass Thru and turn as a couple to face in the opposite direction. Then walk through the dance again to give those dancers who were on the outside a chance to practice the center action.
