|Starting formation - any line with an even number of dancers. Dancers in
each half of the line must be facing in the same direction. The center
dancers in the line drop hands with each other. With each half of the line
working as a unit, the ends move forward while the centers back up until
both halves of the line are facing.
Styling: As ends move forward, centers back up equally. Use normal couple handhold and in the event a new line is formed, immediately join hands in the new line.
Timing: Lines of four, six or eight, 4 steps.
|Starting formation - square or circle. All dancers face their corners.
Walking forward and around each other while keeping right shoulders adjacent,
dancers return to face their partner.
Stiling: Men's arms in natural dance position. Ladies use both hands on skirt, moving skirt forward and back to avoid opposite dancer.
Timing: 8 steps.
|Starting formation - square or circle. Each dancer walks forward and around
the partner keeping left shoulders adjacent, then steps forward to face
the corner. (NOTE: This call is to be used ONLY in conjunction with ALL
AROUND THE CORNER)
Styling: Same as in ALL AROUND THE CORNER except that left shoulders are kept adjacent and left hand and shoulder should be kept forward.
Timing: 8 steps.
|Starting formation - facing couples.
(a) SQUARE THRU: Facing dancers join right hands and pull by. Turn in one quarter (90), join left hands and pull by. (A half square thru has been completed.) Turn in one quarter (90) and join right hands with facing dancer and pull by. (A three quarter square thru has been completed.) Turn in one quarter (90), join left hands and pull by but do not turn. (A full square thru has been completed.) Variations of square thru may be specified by fractions or by the number of hands, e.g. square thru three quarters is the same as square thru three hands, etc.
(b) LEFT SQUARE THRU: Similar to square thru except that it is started with the left hand and hands are alternated accordingly. When a left square thru is required, "left square thru" must be directed.
Styling: Styling should be similar to that in right and left grand. Corners should be rounded off rather than pulling through and doing a square military turn.
Timing: SS, 4 people full, 10 steps; three quarters, 8; one half, 6; one quarter, 4. Box, 4 people full, 8; three quarters, 6; one half, 4; one quarter, 2 steps.
|Starting formation - couple (man and lady). Partners join hands (man's
right with lady's left) and raise them to form an arch. The lady walks
forward and under their joined hands making a one half (180) left-face
turn while the man walks around the lady in a clockwise direction one half
(180). Dancers have exchanged places and are both facing in the opposite
direction from which they started.
Styling: Men and ladies use loose hand grip. Outside hands in natural dance position. It is important that the man does not "wind" the lady. Man's hand should be used to stabilize as the lady provides her own momentum. It is also important that the man's hand remain well above the lady's head. Hands should be adjusted to normal couple handholds after completion of the basic.
Timing: 4 steps.
|Starting formation - facing couples (man and lady). The couple whose back
is to the center of the square (unless a specific couple is directed) makes
an arch by raising their joined inside hands. The other couple ducks under
the arch and moves forward. The couple making the arch moves forward and
does a California twirl. If neither couple has its back to the center of
the set, then one couple must be directed to dive thru the other couple.
Styling: The couple making the arch uses a loose handhold. Stand far enough apart to allow another couple to dive under. It is permissible for dancers making the arch to part hands momentarily if it is uncomfortable to reach over diving dancers. After hands are rejoined, styling should be the same as previously described for California twirl. Couple diving under uses couple handhold. Bend low enough and stay close enough to partner to move comfortably underneath the arch.
Timing: Box, couple diving, 2 steps; couple facing out, 6.
