If the wave is left handed, dancers extend to a left hand wave. Note: Centers in the wave remain centers in the new waves and ends in the wave end as ends in the new waves.

39. SWING THRU FAMILY

Starting formation - ocean wave or alamo.
(a) SWING THRU
Those who can, turn by the right one half (180), then those who can, turn by the left one half (180). If "right" is not specified preceding the command to Swing Thru, it is a right Swing Thru.
(b) ALAMO SWING THRU
Everyone turns half by the right, then everyone turns half by the left. When left Swing Thru is directed from an alamo formation, everyone turns half by the left, then everyone turns half by the right.
(c) LEFT SWING THRU
Those who can, turn by the left one half (180), then those who can, turn by the right one half (180). If left Swing Thru is required, it must be specifically directed "left Swing Thru".
Styling: All hands are joined in hands-up position, elbows in close. Exert slight pressure to assist opposite dancer in turning. Arcing turns should be utilized rather than pull by type of movements and should flow effortlessly from one turn to the other so that you are in a sense, "weaving" along the line.
Timing: 6 steps from point of contact.

40. RUN FAMILY

Starting formation - any two-dancer formation in which the directed dancer has a shoulder directly adjacent to the other dancer.
GENERAL RULE: The directed (active) dancer moves forward in a semi-circle (180E) around an adjacent (inactive) dancer to end in the adjacent dancer's starting position. Meanwhile, the inactive dancer, who may be facing in any direction, adjusts by stepping (without changing facing direction) into the vacated starting position of the active dancer. The active dancer doing the run has reversed his original facing direction. If the direction to Run is not specified (right or left) and if the active dancer has an inactive dancer on each side, then centers Run around ends and ends Run around centers. Runs from an alamo circle are to the right unless otherwise directed.
(a) BOYS RUN   (b) GIRLS RUN   (c) ENDS RUN   (d) CENTERS RUN
The directed (active) dancers Run around the inactive dancers using the general rule.
(e) CROSS RUN
Starting formation - line, two-faced line, or wave. Each of the two directed (active) dancers, who must both be either centers or ends, Run into the spot vacated by the farthest inactive dancer. If the inactive dancers are centers, they sidestep to become ends; if they are ends, they sidestep to become centers. When the active dancers are both facing the same direction, they move forward in a semi-circle, pass each other and then Run into the vacated spot on the far side.
Styling: Hands should blend into handhold required for following formation (i.e. wave or line).
Timing: From ocean waves, centers, 4 steps; cross run, 6; ends, 4; ends cross run, 6.

41. TRADE FAMILY


Starting formation - any wave, line or column.
GENERAL RULE: Any two directed dancers exchange places by walking forward in a semi-circle ending in the other dancer's starting position. Each trading dancer has reversed his original facing direction. If the trading dancers start while facing in the same direction, they pass right shoulders when they meet per the right shoulder rule (see Passing Rule).
(a) BOYS TRADE   (b) GIRLS TRADE   (c) ENDS TRADE
(d) CENTERS TRADE

Directed dancers (boys, girls, ends or centers) exchange places, changing facing directions using the general rule.
(e) COUPLES TRADE
Starting formation - line or two-faced line. Working as a unit, each couple exchanges places with the other couple in the same line. Couples, as a unit, follow the right shoulder passing rule as defined for individual dancers.
(f) PARTNER TRADE
Starting formation - couple, mini wave. Two dancers exchange places with each other.
Styling: Any two adjacent opposite facing dancers use normal hands up position for turning as in swing thru type movements. Girls trading (i.e. from end of line) will use normal skirt work. Couples trade use normal couple handhold and styling similar to wheel and deal, Basic #40. When doing a partner trade, use inside hands to exert slight pressure to assist each other in trading.
Timing: SS, partner, 4 steps; OW, centers, 4; ends, 4; from two-faced lines, couples, 6 steps.
