|Starting formation - two or more dancers. (a) CIRCLE LEFT, (b) CIRCLE RIGHT.
Dancers join hands to form a circle, face slightly left or right as directed
and move forward around the circle the distance directed. When left or
right is not specified for circle, it is a circle to the left.
Styling: All dancers walk (dance) forward with joined hands, men's palms up and ladies' palms down, elbows bent comfortably so that hands are above the elbow.
Timing: Standing or static square (SS) 8 people, full around, 16 steps; three quarters, 12 steps; one half, 8 steps; one quarter, 4 steps.
|Starting formation - Single dancer. Each dancer steps forward three steps
and pauses while bringing the free foot forward and touching it to the
floor without transferring weight. Each steps back three steps beginning
with the free foot and pauses while touching the free foot beside the weight-bearing
Starting formation - From facing lines of four or similar situations where eight counts are not appropriate, each dancer steps forward and pauses while bringing the other foot forward and touching it to the floor without transferring weight. Each steps back on the free foot and pauses while touching the other foot beside it.
Styling: Couples have inside hands joined. As couples meet in the center, outside hands may be touched palm to palm. As the foot is brought to the touch (on the 4th and 8th counts), it should remain on the floor.
Timing: SS (static square) all, 8 steps, heads or sides, 8 steps; rock forward and back, 4 steps; balance, 4 steps.
Do Sa Do to a Wave
|Starting formation - facing dancers. Dancers advance and pass right shoulders.
Without turning, each dancer moves to the right passing in back of the
other dancer. Then moving backwards, each passes left shoulders returning
to starting position.
Styling: Men - arms in natural dance position, right shoulders forward as right shoulders pass, left shoulders forward as left shoulders pass. Ladies - both hands on skirt, moving skirt forward and back to avoid opposite dancer, right hand forward as right shoulders pass, left hand forward as left shoulders pass.
Timing: SS with corner, 6 steps; with partner, 6; from a Box formation (see "Dancer Tips" at Basic #20), 6; SS across the set, 8.
|Starting formation - Facing dancers (man and lady). Dancers step forward
ending right side to right side and move around each other turning in a
clockwise direction four or more counts. Dancers break out of the swing.
The lady continues turning to her right until facing the same direction
as the man, they form a couple.
Styling: Men: left arm bent at the elbow, palm slightly up, right hand on lady's back slightly above the waist, posture should be erect. Ladies - right hand palm down on man's left hand, left hand on man's right shoulder, arm resting on man's right arm.
Footwork: WALK AROUND - use short walking or shuffling steps around the central point. BUZZ STEP - right foot moves in small steps around the pivot point between the two dancers while the left foot pushes, as in a scooter motion.
Ending position: Lady rolls off man's right arm blending smoothly to position for the next call or twirls (to a promenade position only - lady's option). To twirl, the man raises his left hand over the lady's head, holding lady's right hand loosely. Her hand revolves around his for stability as she turns clockwise moving down line of dance three steps, into a promenade position, joining inside hands on the 4th step. While the lady turns, the man will move forward down the line of dance to be in position for the promenade.
Timing: Advancing skill, usually 4 to 8 beats of music, used at caller's discretion.
|(a) COUPLES PROMENADE
Starting formation - As a unit the couple walks forward around the circle counterclockwise. Unless otherwise specified, they promenade until reaching the man's home position. At the end of the promenade the couple turns, as a unit, to face the center of the set. If promenading to the man's home position, the couple always goes at least one quarter around the square. If need be, they continue past the man's home position for another full time around.
