    Originally posted by Wendy on tribe.net.While I was in Europe, at a hafla I noticed several people using fades with duets. Just to clarify, this is NOT part of our format. Fades are for trios, quartets, and staggers of 5 people or more. We never do fades with duets.

This is not part of the FC format right?

    Originally posted by Wendy on tribe.net.do you mean like changing leads in a stagger? Front row moving to right, back row moving to left? I didnt see that so much on my last couple of trips, but I have even seen that here in the U.S., and yeah, we dont change leads that way unless you are in a stagger. Any group of 4 or less either fades, or pivots and circles to change leads.
