La mudansa or "The Transfer"
Opening Sequence: Standard.
Dance Pattern: The "transfer" of la mudansa refers to an exchange between dancers.
III. The threesome circles with the abuelo, who had been dropped off in place of the first man. The new man takes the abuelos place, while monarca and malinche lead the abuelo straight across to the first man in the right line (Figure 9).
IV. Circling the first man in the right line, they pick him up and drop off the abuelo in his place (Figure 10). The new threesome "transfers" this third man up the center diagonally to the place of the last man in the left line, where another exchange takes place (Figure 11).
V. The new threesome dances back down the center diagonally, transferring danzante number four to the first position in the right line, picking up the abuelo, and crossing over to the second man in the left line (Figure 12).
VI. The transfers continue from the ends of the lines toward the middle. When everyone has been exchanged, the abuelo calls for turns, one outward and one inward. Then the exchanges are reversed, beginning from the middle of the lines and working back out towards the ends, until everyone is back in his original place.
Closing Sequence: Standard.
