Notes:

  • As with all Star movements, wait until all four dancers are in the Star before you turning it.
  • Those who become a Lead End after the first Arm Turn 1/4 (or 3/4), must do a full Circulate and resist the temptation to Trade with the End of the Center Wave.

Variations:

  • Star 1/4, Star 1/2, Star 3/4
  • Don't Turn The Star

{i-j-k-l} 1/4 The Deucey [C4]: From Parallel Waves: 1/4 The Deucey replace the first 1/4 Turn with an i/4 Turn; replace the second 1/4 Turn with a j/4 Turn; replace the third 1/4 Turn (the Star) with a k/4 Turn; and replace the fourth 1/4 Turn with an l/4 Turn. Ends in Parallel Waves or Facing Twin Diamonds.

Spin Chain The Star [C4] (Charlie Tilley 1969): 2-3-2-3 1/4 The Deucey. If the caller says 'Turn the Star n/4', do a 2-3-n-3 1/4 The Deucey.
