  2. Start the music.
  3. While the music plays, the two circles walk in opposite directions.
  4. When the music stops, students greet the person closest to them in the opposite circle.
  5. After greeting is complete, the pair sits down.
  6. Once all students are sitting down, the music is started again.
  7. When the music restarts, the students say goodbye, stand up and being walking in opposite directions again.
