Me: Okay, Knights, at this point in the song I want a protective stance, so let's have you guys form a circle back-to-back.
The knights make a U-shape.
Me: No, a circle.
The knights make a horseshoe shape.
Me: A circle, guys. An actual circle. Make a circle. I make circle shapes with my hands.
The knights scooch in closer to each other.
Me: No, just close the back part.
Me: Now face out...
Three of them turn to face in.
Me: No, out. Away from each other.
Those three turn to face out. At the same time, the two in the back step out of the circle to face the audience instead.
Me: Face away from each other, but still in a circle.
They scooch closer together.
Me: Inspiration strikes. Weathertop. Stand like you're on Weathertop.
They immediately form a circle back to back.
Knights: Why didn't you just say that to begin with?
