Notes:

  • Chase Left is often called as Left Chase so that the dancers initially hear the word Left. Otherwise, the dancers may start moving to the right after hearing the word Chase. Chase Right, on the other hand, is rarely called as Right Chase.
  • Chase Right | Left should be danced as one smooth fluid movement (i.e., don't U-Turn Back; pause; Box Circulate; pause; Box Circulate).
  • On Chase Right move clockwise (to your right) two positions within your box.
  • End next to the same dancer with whom you started, but on the other half of the Box. After Chase Right you are holding Right-hands with that dancer; after Chase Left you are holding Left-hands.
  • At the end of the call, only half the dancers can Roll. The dancers moving straight ahead can not Roll.
    • On Chase Right, only the original Belles can Roll.
    • On Left Chase, only the original Beaus can Roll.
