The original centers end on the same spot,
so they step to right hands, and the overall
ending formation is offset

Notes:

  • Flip In means to slide inward one position while turning 180° toward that direction.

    Flip is similar to a Run, except that Flip is done along the same plane, whereas Run has the dancer moving along an arc.

  • Points take the inside path (since they are flipping toward the center),
    and Centers take the outside path (since they are moving in an arc).

Reverse Flip The Diamond [C2]: From a Diamond. Centers Phantom Run (Flip away from each other) as Points Diamond Circulate. Ends in a Line.

Cut The Diamond [Plus] (Lee Kopman 1973): From a Diamond. Centers do your part Diamond Circulate as Points slide together and Trade to end in the furthest Center position. A normal Diamond ends in a Two-Faced Line.

Flip The Hourglass [A2] (Tim Ploch): From an Hourglass. Outsides flip in (Phantom Run) as Centers Hourglass Circulate. Usually ends in Parallel Lines.
