41. DOUBLE PASS THRU: Starting formation -double pass thru. Dancers move forward, passing right shoulders with two other dancers to finish facing away from the center of the set in a completed double pass thru formation.

STYLING: Same as in pass thru. Dancer leads slightly with right shoulder and therefore the lady could use her right hand to work her skirt by putting it in front of her as she passes.

TIMING: 4 steps.

When I teach this move, I will get them into a double pass thru position. I will point out that we call this a double pass thru position. I will tell them that we are learning a new move, and tell them the definition. I will tell them, that the dancer that is behind someone else, will start "passing" later, so the leaders will have to take another step after they have passed two shoulders. I will tell the dancers that are trailing, to say "I'M THERE" after they have passed the second shoulder. I tell them, that we are only going to say that tonight, because the leaders cannot see behind them to see when to stop. I will then ask for the trailers to identify themselves, to make sure they understand me.

I will walk them through, reminding them to pass right shoulders. I'll tell them to keep going till the trailing dancers pass right shoulders with two dancers. I will then tell them that we call this position, a completed double pass thru, and this is where the move ends.

Now I will have everyone do a U-Turn Back. I'll have them do a double pass thru again. I will "cue" to them the first few times. I will make sure that each dancer does the leading part, and the trailing part. Also I will be sure that each one starts as a right hand dancer, as well as a left hand dancer.

I will use a variety of ways to get into the DPT position. I will also be sure to use a variety of moves following this call. With things like: first couple go left and second couple go right, leaders trade, leaders U-Turn Back, all face right, and so on, there is no reason to make the dancers form a habit or anticipate.

A fun thing I like to do, is call first couple go left and second couple go right, a few times. Then call it as first couple go left and second couple go left, and Promenade. It gets some smiles, and reminds the dancers to listen.
