Plus Class 10/29/2019 Recap

Hello Plus Students!


Besides our usual "class recap", there is a lot of info here, so please read it all:)



Tuesday was our 7th (of 14) Plus lessons. We are now at the halfway point for lessons. We have learned well more than 50% of the Plus calls. Ed very wisely plans to use our last few lessons for practice and review. Ed arrived early and helped a few early students with some review. I thought class was very fun and high energy. It felt like we are all starting to get this! We had three squares until the last tip when we dropped to two squares. Karen, Evelyn and Luke you were missed!



  1. Spin Chain the Gears

  2. Anything... and Spread (we did "Follow Your Neighbor... and Spread", "Wheel and Deal ... and Spread", "California Twirl... and Spread")

  3. Track II (Track 2? Track Two?)

  4. Cut the Diamond

  5. Turn Through (OK, this is now a Mainstream call, and I think Ed has taught this before, but I CAN NOT get this! Is it me? Anyone else?)
