Subject: [Callers] Barn dances for teens
I call a small monthly dance for teenagers, a blast and interesting in many ways.
We always do a few barn dances -- great fun, and a nice break from worrying about
progressing the wrong way and ending swings on the wrong side. But the kids are smart and
game, so most of the family dances in my box are too easy.
Here are some favorites. Have other good ones to add?

Waves of Tory
Dances that can include everybody are best (longways, circles) rather than fixed-size sets
(squares, triplets) where some people have to sit out.
