   view (admin)

From a Line or other applicable 4-dancer formation.

Centers Step Ahead as Ends Run into the adjacent Center position.

Ends in either a Box (2 x 2) or a "Z" (4 spots within a 2 x 3 Matrix).

Step & Flip is similar to Step & Fold [C1] except that on a Step & Flip the original Ends always finish holding hands with each other.

Notes:

  • From a Wave, Step & Flip ends in a "Z" whereas Step & Fold ends in a Mini-Wave Box.
  • The 'Step' of Step & Flip is a step ahead, which often (but not always) is the same as a Press Ahead. 'Flip' means Run into the adjacent position (as in Flip The Diamond).
  • Unlike Step & Fold, Step & Flip can be done from any line of 4. Upon completion of the call, the original Ends are adjacent to each other. From Parallel Lines, Step & Flip is done in each Line, and nobody crosses the center line to the other half of the set.
