Circle game: example.

All join hands, any number or gender. One sucker, er, volunteer, in the middle.

You need only know your left from your right, and be able to count to eight.

Face left, left foot poised and ready to step out.

To practice, have everyone take eight steps, to the beat. Take eight more.

Now, to the music:

We're marching 'round the village
(3x)
As we have done before.

Everyone stop. Raise arms into arches. "It" goes out one arch, then in the next:

Go in and out the window, (3x)
As we have done before.

Go forth and find your lover,

I kneel because I love you,

(Getting preadolescents to do this is really a chore.)

Everyone joing hand and resume circling left to:

Farewell, I hate to leave you,

Circle turns and circles RIGHT to:

I'm coming back to see you,

These games are lots of fun, and the secret agenda is, you are creating the next generation of FOLK DANCERS, as the moves are the same.
