Team Teaching Format

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 3037)

This is not a pattern but a format. Pair up with another instructor and team teach a step class. It's a great way to have some fun as you can both interact during the class.
This is the pattern we use:

Now that you both have 2, 64 counts, have instructor 1 do theirs, then about 8 counts before it ends, cue "get ready", and have instructor 2 go right into his/hers when yours ends. Keep going back and forth with the 2 patterns.

In the beginning when instructors are going back and forth teaching the patterns, have them do a basic step until the other instructor is ready. But when each instructors patterns are done, run them without the break, back to back.

It's great to have another instructor to feed off, especially when you have a "dull" crowd. We have one do the warm-up, the other does the cool down.

Does anyone have any new formats?
