63. DIXIE STYLE TO AN OCEAN WAVE
Starting formation - facing couples or facing tandems. From facing couples, the right hand dancer steps forward and to the left to become the lead dancer in a tandem. Lead dancers join right hands and pull by. Moving to the other trailing dancer, each extends a left hand and touches to a left hand mini wave and turns one quarter (90). New center dancers join right hands and form a left hand ocean wave.
Styling: Lead dancers initially pulling by in the center should use handshake hold as in right and left grand. When forming mini waves with trailing dancers, dancers must adjust to the right, using hands-up position and same styling as in swing thru.
Timing: SS, heads or sides to the wave, 6; all 4 couples to the wave, 8.

64. SPIN CHAIN THRU
Starting formation - parallel waves. Each end and the adjacent center dancer turn one half (180). The new centers of each ocean wave turn three quarters (270) to make a new ocean wave across the set. The two centers of this wave turn one half (180) to reform the wave across the set. The two outside pairs of dancers of the center wave now turn three quarters (270) to join the waiting ends and form parallel ocean waves.
Styling: Hands up as in swing thru. It is important that the waiting ends remain in static position with hands ready to assume appropriate position for the next call.
Timing: Box, 16.

65. TAG FAMILY
(a) TAG THE LINE
Starting formation - any line with an even number of dancers.
FULL: Each dancer turns to face the center of the line. Taking a short side step to the left, each dancer walks forward passing right shoulders with oncoming dancers until he has walked past all of the dancers from the other half of the line. The call may be followed by any one of the directions In, Out, Right or Left. When this happens, dancers turn in place one quarter (90) in the direction indicated.
Styling: Arms in natural dance position, hands ready to assume appropriate position for the next call. A flowing type of movement can be achieved by taking a slight step forward before turning toward the center of the line, thus avoiding the abrupt military type pivot.
Timing: Facing lines with pass thru, tag the line full, 8 steps. Two-faced line tag the line full, 6 steps,

66. HALF TAG THE LINE
Starting formation - any line with an even number of dancers. Like tag the line, except the dancers stop walking forward when the original center from each side of the line meets the original end from the other side. If started from a four person line, the ending is a right hand box circulate formation; from longer lines the ending is a right hand column formation.
Styling: Arms in natural dance position, hands ready to assume appropriate position for the next call. A flowing type of movement can be achieved by taking a slight step forward before turning toward the center of the line, thus avoiding the abrupt military type pivot.
Timing: Facing lines with pass thru, 6 steps: two-faced line 4 steps.

67. SCOOT BACK
Starting formation - box circulate or quarter tag. From box circulate, dancers facing in step straight forward to join adjacent forearms, turn half (180) and step forward to end in the position vacated by the dancer who was facing out. Meanwhile, each dancer facing out runs into the position vacated by the dancer who is doing the forearm turn. When done from right hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the right and the dancers facing out run right. When done from left hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the left and the dancers facing out run left. Finishes in a box circulate formation.
From quarter tag, dancers step ahead, join forearms (right if center wave was right handed or left if center wave was left handed), turn half (180) and step straight forward. Those returning to the center step to a wave (using same hands as original wave); the others finish as a couple facing out. Ending formation is a 3/4 tag.
Styling: Similar to that of turn thru and fold.
Timing: 6 steps.

68. HINGE Family

A hinge is a half of a trade. Any two adjacent couples or dancers who can trade can also hinge.
(a) COUPLES HINGE
Starting formation - line or two-faced line. Working as a unit, each couple does half of a couples trade to end in a two-faced line at right angles to the original line.
(b) SINGLE HINGE
Starting formation - mini wave. Dancers do half of a trade with each other to end in a mini wave at right angles to the original mini wave.
Styling: Couples use couple handhold and styling similar to wheel and deal. Single hinge use hands up position.
Timing: Couples hinge, 3 steps; single hinge, 2 steps.

69. RECYCLE
