Walking step, begin on left foot. Can also be danced with more couples in the set
There can easily be more (or less) than 4 couples. The music will be 4 times through, so designed for one turn for each couple, but you can just start it again, can't you?
This is a 'round the room' dance, you'd need at least six, better 8 or many many more couples for this. Couples start standing next to each other, opposite another couple, so one of the couples will face clockwise, the other anti-clockwise. If you want to introduce 'men' and 'ladies' (which you don't have to, of course), it's men on the left, ladies on the right (so man facing lady of the opposite couple).
Start with groups of 3 couples forming a circle, M on left of P
only bars 9-16 differ from the Dunedin Festival Dance
This is really fun, if you have more than 5 couples (works for large groups, too). Probably, the circles will consist of some four-couple and some two-couple circles after the first time through. No matter. It might be useful to count loudly sometimes, so everybody is roughly in time to start the new circles (five - and - six - and - seven - find - newcircles, and...)
Circle with partner on Man's right
Starts in a big circle, 'men' on the left of their partner. Probably people will end up on the 'wrong side' after the turn - you can help by saying that during the promenade, 'ladies' are on the outside, that they can easily swap places in the promenade, and that it doesn't change much if they go wrong anyway. They'll just dance with the same people more often.
It's a dance written for children, hence the name. Tha dance is super, and is fun because of the 'bite your own tail' kind of formation. It's for 4 couples, you can dance it with 3, but 5 gets difficult because the ways are too long then.
Can be danced in a 3C, 4C or 5C set
I wouldn't introduce progression (1st couple starts again from second place) if it's their first time dancing and your first time teaching, so change the 'Turn Right Hand' into 'Turn Right Hand into fourth place'/ 'spin down to last place' - so the circle already has the dancing couple in last place and a new top couple can then start.
