T.B.C. Trio was written many years ago for the Texas Boy Choir by Bob Howell. It was first presented at a workshop to teach the boys how to dance. They were just used to just standing and singing. Since then, the dance has been a favorite of mine for use at beginner dance parties. If you click here, you can see a video of a teaching session I did at the Beginner Dance Party Leaders Seminar. The dance is described in detail in Dancing for Busy People.
Formation: Lines of three people facing lines of three people in a wagon spoke formation around the hall. A diagram of this formation can be seen by clicking here. It is the second diagram on the page.
..1-16 The outside person in the lines facing counterclockwise around the hall is leader #1. They lead their line around the opposite three.
17-32 The outside person in the lines facing clockwise around the hall is leader #2. They lead their line around the opposite three.
33-40 The end four people make a Right Hand Star. The center people will have to step back out of the way a little.
41-48 The center people DoSaDo the facing center person in the opposite line.
49-56 Lines of three Forward & Back.
57-64 Pass Thru the facing line of three and move on to a new line of three.
Notes: It really doesn’t make any difference which couple is designated as Couple #1 or Couple #2. I also frequently substitute an Arm Turn for the DoSaDo.
