|BASIC MOVEMENT LIST NO.4|
|18. Do Pa So||19. Lead Right|
|20. Right And Left Thru||21. Grand Square|
|22. Star Thru||23. Circle to a Line|
|Starting formation - circle of two or more couples. Each dancer faces partner
or directed dancer and does a left arm turn half (180) to face in the opposite
direction. Releasing armholds and moving forward, each dancer goes to the
corner for a right arm turn half (180). Each returns to the starting partner
to courtesy turn to face the center of the set or to follow the next call.
Styling: All dancers' hands in position for forearm turns, alternating left and right. When the courtesy turn portion of the do paso is replaced by a different logical basic, then the styling reverts to that basic.
Timing: SS from start to finish of courtesy turn, 16 steps; to the next call, 12.
|Starting formation - couple. Directed couple(s) take a step forward, and
as a unit turn to the right 90 and move forward.
Styling: Normal couple handhold between the man and lady, outside hands in normal dance position.
Timing: 4 steps.
|Starting formation - facing couples. Dancers step forward, join right hands
with the dancer directly ahead and pull by. Each couple then does a courtesy
turn to face the other couple.
Styling: Each dancer takes regular handshake hold (right hands) with opposite as they move by each other. They release hands immediately as they pull by. For courtesy turn styling, refer to that Basic #15.
Timing: SS, heads or sides across the set, 8 steps; Box (couples standing closer together), 6; OW (within an ocean wave - a formation that appears in Basic #35), 6 steps.
|Starting formation - square. A call that has the sides doing one part while
at the same time the heads are doing another. Heads move forward into the
square (4 steps), turning one quarter (90) on the fourth step to face partners
and back away to the sides of the square (4 steps). Turn one quarter (90)
to face the original opposites. Back away to the corners of the square
(4 steps) and turn one quarter (90) to face original partners and walk
forward to home (4 steps). Do not turn. (Total to here: 16 steps.) From
this point the action is reversed. Heads back away from their partners
(4 steps), turning one quarter (90) on the fourth step and walk forward
to the opposites (4 steps). Turn one quarter and walk forward into the
center toward partners (4 steps). Turn one quarter (90) to face opposites
and back up to home (total: 32 steps). While the head couples are doing
the first 16 steps, the sides start by facing their partners to back away
and do the second 16 steps. Completing this, the sides do the first 16
steps, while the heads are doing the last 16. The principle of walking
three steps and then turning (or reversing) on the fourth step is followed
throughout. This call may be broken into fractional parts by the caller
directing the number of steps required. The call may also start with the
heads, or other designated dancers, directed to face.
Styling: Mens' arms in natural dance position; ladies work skirt with natural swinging action. When moving forward and backward as a couple, normal couple handhold is desired.
Timing: 32 counts.
|Starting formation - facing dancers (man and lady). Man's right hand is
placed against the lady's left, palm to palm with fingers up, to make an
arch. As the dancers move forward the lady does a one quarter (90) left
face turn under the arch, while the man does a one quarter (90) turn to
the right moving behind the lady. They end side by side with the lady on
the man's right.
Styling: Hands are joined in the arch, palm to palm, fingers pointed up. Hand grip should be readjusted to couple handhold after the basic is completed. Join hands in raised position approximately eye level. It is important that hands not be joined before that point. Man's hand should be used to stabilize as the lady provides her own momentum. It is equally important that the man's arm remain well above the lady's head.
Timing: 4 steps from point of contact.
|Starting formation - facing couples. Couples circle left one half (180).
The lead dancer in the couple who started on the inside (man's position)
releases the left handhold, but retains the handhold of the dancer on his
right to become the left end dancer of the line. The released dancer moves
forward under the raised arm arch formed by that dancer and the adjacent
dancer to become the right end dancer in the line.
Styling: The circle portion is the same styling as in circle eight. As the man breaks with his left hand to form a line, he should lead the line several steps before turning. After the end lady has released her right hand, and while retaining the right hand of the man beside her, together they will raise their joined hands and make an arch. Then as the line begins to straighten out, she will move forward under this arch, turning left face gradually under her own left arm so that instead of backing up she is moving forward to the end of the line.
Timing: 8 steps.
