  • Teach Yourselves The Hey

    August 19th, 2011
    calling, contra, davis, outdoor_contra  [html]
    Calling for the outdoor dance wednesday, I decided to do a dance with a hey. After it became clear lots of people didn't know they hey, I normally would have taught it from the mic. Being unamplified, though, that seemed like too much shouting. So told the experienced dancers to teach their hands four how to do the hey. Which I think worked pretty well: once the dance started people looked like they understood it.

    (Although I was not clear enough that in this dance the gents pull by right at the end of the A1 not the beginning of the A2)
