I use “Yakety Yak” for my senior classes and “Boys” for other groups.
Same easy steps, way different vibe! Arrange two lines facing each other, aligned between two people, not directly across from anyone.

Which song does your group use?

From the videos I couldn’t tell if the walk forward & back or the grapevine was the first step on the sequence.

What’s the difference between 1/8 turn or 2 slow 1/4 pivots with a step hold?
