Notes:

  • On both Star Thru and Mirror Star Thru, the Girl goes under the arch.
  • Alternate hands.
  • Triple Star Thru is a Those Who Can movement. You may or may not go a total of 3 hands. You might go 3 hands, or you might only do the first 2 hands, or the last 2 hands.
  • After each part, you become a Partner with the dancer you were facing.
  • Star Thru, Double Star Thru, and Triple Star Thru are sex-dependent calls. The call is dependent upon your sex, not your position as a Beau or a Belle.
  • Triple Star Thru can not be done if same sex are facing at any time during the call.
