From various formations.

Replace each Arm Turn 1/2 (i.e., Swing or Slip) with a Partner Trade and do the given call. (E.g., Two-Faced Spin The Top would start from a Two-Faced Line and would be a Partner Trade; Fan The Top.)

Here is a partial list of calls that might be done Two-Faced at C3B:

Alter & Circulate Alter The Wave Change The Centers | Wave
Delight | Dilemma Peel Chain Thru Relay The Deucey
Relay The Shadow Relay The Top Reverse The Top
Spin Chain & Exchange The Gears Spin Chain The Gears Spin Chain The Line
Spin Chain Thru Spin The Top Spin The Windmill
Swing & Circle Swing & Mix Swing Chain Thru
Swing-O-Late  

Two-Faced Spin The Top:

Notes:

  • Calls that normally start with the right hand (such as Swing Thru) become Any Hand calls.
  • Cast Off 3/4 often becomes a 'Push Cast.'
  • The given call does not have to begin with an Arm Turn 1/2 (e.g., Two-Faced Reverse The Top).
  • In calls which involve a Star (e.g., Relay The Top), the Star often becomes a facing Star (or Diamond). Do one Star Circulate (facing Diamond Circulate) for each 1/4 Turn of the Star.
  • Two-Faced does not mean that the starting formation must consist entirely of Couples. It simply means that somewhere in the given call someone will have to Replace an Arm Turn 1/2 with a Partner Trade. For example, from a 3 & 1 Tidal setup, on a Two-Faced Spin Chain The Line, some dancers would start with a normal Arm Turn 1/2. Our point is that the caller can say 'Two-Faced anything' instead of 'Some Work Two-Faced, all anything'.
