Everybody Dance And Sing Contra
( 1 Votes)
When I'm Out Tonight by Dave Sheriff
Intro: 16 counts - No Tags, No Restarts
NOTE: THIS IS A MODIFICATION OF MY 4-WALL DANCE TO A 1-WALL CONTRA FORMAT. DANCERS ALWAYS FACE THE SAME WALL TO BEGIN A NEW SEQUENCE. THE MAIN MODIFICATIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
In Section 2: counts 5-6-7-8 are 2 quarter turns to the left to face the dancer opposite.
In Section 4: counts 5-6-7-8 are a ½ left pivot (5-6) followed by the slap/clap motions for 7&8&
EASIER OPTIONS FOR THE LAST 4 COUNTS IN SECTION 4:
(1) The easiest option is to repeat the ¼ turn X 2 as in Section 2 (5-6-7-8).
(2) Another option is to do the ½ pivot to face your partner and stomp R, L for counts 7-8.
You can also clap after each stomp for a count of 7&8&
Obviously, everyone should agree to do the same option before starting the dance!
