It could, for instance, travel to the left by stepping the right foot well to the left on count 1, then bringing the left foot to the left to settle on the circle on count 2. Does FCBD do this or any other traveling version of the Double Back in a circle? Thanks for help!

    Originally posted by Nancy Young on tribe.net.Thanks, Sandi! Yes, I did ask Stephanie about it, but specifically about traveling it with a turn (which Id seen another ATS teacher do). I wanted to know if FC did that. Stephanie said no. I didnt get clear on just how FC does travels with it, so thats what youve just let me know. Sorry if Ive been annoying!

If we are doing the DB stationary facing in, we can cue for the 1/2 turn and do it in place. If were facing in a duet, theres an opportunity to pass either facing or back to back, which might be considered a turn, but its really just flipping one way or the other.

    Originally posted by Joan Marie on tribe.net.Regarding the double back 1/2 turn, is it ok if the leader does not turn back to the front but waits for the followers to complete the 1/2 turn back to the front and then circle up? If yes, is it permissable to do this with other moves that half turn.br/br/Thanks. Joan

If you want to face the circle with a half-turn move, just dont turn back to the front at the end. If you want to face the circle with a full-turn move, over-turn so that you do the full turn and a little more. 🙂
