This dance was designed to be done “contra style”, with your group in two lines facing one another. Each person should line up, not directly facing the other person, but off-set in the spaces between each person. When you walk forward during the first 4 counts, you will pass the people facing you briefly before walking back again. In counts 17-24 you will again pass the people facing you and you will stay there as you each turn around to face each other again.
You’ve traded places!

Enjoy this great song!
