Notes:

  • The Outside 6 Circulate within their distorted 6-dancer formation. To Circulate, move forward to the next position within the Outside 6, turning if necessary (not at all, 1/4, or 1/2) to take the original facing direction of the dancer that occupied the spot to which you are moving. If you are facing a dancer on the Circulate path, pass right shoulders and take that dancer's original opposite facing direction.
  • Acey Deucey means "Ends Circulate as Centers Trade". 6 By 2 Acey Deucey means that 6 (outside) dancers Circulate as 2 (center) dancers Trade. The first number (6) indicates the number of dancers in the Circulate path; the second number (2) indicates the number of dancers doing a Trade. Hence, a normal Acey Deucey is a 4 By 4 Acey Deucey.
  • Common variations:
    • 6 By 2 Acey Deucey, Very Centers go 1 & 1/2
    • 6 By 2 Acey Deucey, Circulators go Twice
  • On Acey Deucey, the Outside 4 Circulate as the Center 4 Trade.
    • From Twin Diamonds, a caller could say either Acey Deucey or 6 By 2 Acey Deucey. Both are legal, but different, calls.
    • On 6 By 2 Acey Deucey, the Outside 6 Circulate as the Very Center 2 Trade.
