Load The Boat

 CALLERLAB  -  December 2007
 

Definition:
 

Starting formation - Lines of four, with centers facing in, and the ends of each line facing the same (in or out) direction. TIMING - 12

The end dancers move forward around the outside, passing right shoulders with three moving end dancers, and turn one-quarter in (90°) to stand beside the third person passed, facing the center of the set as a couple. Simultaneously, the center four dancers Pass Thru, turn their backs to their momentary partners, Partner Trade with their new partners, and Pass Thru.

STYLING: The end dancers, while moving on the outside, leave enough room for the center dancers to work comfortably. Arms are held in natural dance position throughout the action, blending into the appropriate hand position for the next call.

An old call written by Holman Hudspith....I urge you to teach the call properly as over the years some callers in an attempt to come up with an easy teach violated the action so that it was only possible to use from 1P-2P lines not any line formation (apd) STARTING FORMATION IS A LINE OF FOUR....For our example we shall start with a 1P-2P line....The ends of the line will start circulating around the outside of the set..Passing by three dancers and when they pass number three turn to face into the set and couple up with the third one they passed... The center dancers in the line have the hard part to learn...The centers pass thru...1/4 out...partner trade then pass thru.....I present the center action a couple of ways when teaching it....CENTERS PASS THRU...TURN YOUR BACK TO YOUR PARTNER TOUCH INSIDE HANDS WITH YOUR NEW PARTNER THEN PARTNER TRADE WITH THEM NOW PASS THRU....Once they get the idea you can help by saying centers pass out..partner trade & pass thru..... ACTION ENDS IN AN EIGHT CHAIN THRU SET UP.... Also the action of a load the boat from standard lines equals a star thru.......

1P-2P....Load the boat....square thru 3/4....Left alle...

Box 1-4....Star thru....Pass thru....Bend the line....Load the boat....Left alle...

Note be sure you teach the action from Heads Lead Right as well as Sides Lead Right lines to give the dancers a chance to learn both parts...The figure will present a learning challenge so drill and keep the combinations simple until the pattern is mastered....
