58. CENTERS IN

Starting formation - whenever there is a couple with their backs to the center of the set facing or standing behind another couple (e.g. eight chain thru, completed double pass thru). The outside dancers step apart as the center dancers step forward and between them to form a line.
Styling: The active couple should use couple handhold and, if stepping in between couples facing the same direction, join hands in a line of four. If the active couple steps in between a couple facing in the opposite direction, use hands-up position with the end dancers.
TIMING: 2 steps.

59. CAST OFF THREE QUARTERS
Starting formation - any wave or line. Each half of the line or wave works as a unit and moves forward around a pivot point three quarters (270). If the adjoining dancers are facing the same direction, the end dancer becomes the pivot while the other dancer moves in a semi-circle around the pivot. If the adjoining dancers are facing in opposite directions, the pivot point is the handhold between them and they move equally around that pivot point.
Styling: If joined dancers are in opposite facing directions, the handhold should be hands-up position as in swing thru. If joined dancers are in the same facing direction, handholds are as in couples handhold position.
Timing: 6 steps.

60. WALK & DODGE
Starting formation - box circulate or facing couples. From box circulate formation, each dancer facing into the box walks forward to take the place of the dancer who was directly in front of him. Meanwhile, each dancer facing out of the box steps sideways (dodges) into the position vacated by the "walker" who was formerly beside him. Dancers end side by side, both facing out. If walk and dodge is called from facing couples, the caller must designate who is to walk and who is to dodge (e.g., "men walk, ladies dodge"). Ending is a box circulate formation.
Styling: Arms in natural dance position. Skirt work for the ladies is optional. Hands should be ready to assume appropriate position for the next call.
Timing: 4 steps.

61. SLIDE THRU
Starting formation - facing dancers. Dancers pass thru. A man always turns right one quarter (90); a lady always turns left one quarter (90). Dancers end side by side with each other.
Styling: Arms in natural dance position with skirt work optional for ladies. Hands should be rejoined in the appropriate position for the next call.
Timing: SS, heads, or sides, 6; Box, 4 steps.

62. FOLD FAMILY

Starting formation - any two dancer formation in which the directed dancer has a shoulder directly adjacent to the other dancer.
GENERAL RULE
Directed dancers step forward and move in a small semi-circle to end facing toward an adjacent dancer or position. The adjacent inactive dancer may be facing in any direction and does not move. If not specified, centers fold toward ends and vice versa.
(a) BOYS FOLD, (b) GIRLS FOLD,
(c) ENDS FOLD, (d) CENTERS FOLD

Directed active dancers fold toward the inactive dancers using the general rule.
(e) CROSS FOLD
Starting formation - line, two-faced line, or wave. The directed (active) dancers who must either both be centers or both be ends, fold toward the farthest inactive dancer by walking in a semi-circle to end facing toward that same dancer. When the active dancers are both facing the same direction, they move forward in a semi-circle, pass each other and fold toward the inactive dancer.
Styling: Hand position depends on starting formation, i.e, hands up from a wave, couple handhold from a line or circulate. Using appropriate hand position, the inactive dancer should exert slight pressure to adjacent dancer and assist in initiating folding action.
Timing: Fold, 2 steps; cross fold, 4 steps.
