Square Dance: Random Style

Teach these a few at a time while students move around the gym by themselves. The music stops whenever it’s time to teach a new set of skills. When you get to the partner section, students pick someone close to them.

Group Formation: Spread out on the floor with space between you. Move around the gym in a clockwise direction (random style if group is capable).
