Noter:
• The Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2 is often referred to as Star 1/2. EN: 50
Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2 er ofte reffereret til som Star 1/2. DK: 50
• Dancers who Cast Off 3/4 become the Ends of the resulting Wave no matter how far the Diamond is turned. Dancers who U-Turn Back always become the Centers. EN: 60
Dansere der Cast Off 3/4 bliver Ends I den afsluttende Wave uanset hvor langt Diamonden bliver drejet. Dansere der laver U-Turn Back bliver altid Centers. DK: 60
• The Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2 is danced by turning the whole Diamond 180 degrees around its center of gravity. Centers retain handholds throughout the Diamond Counter Rotate and the Points should NOT place their hands into the 'Star', but instead should point as they would when identifying Diamonds. This is very important, because if there are 3 or more hands are in the Center, dancers tend to forget who is to flip whom for the Flip The Diamond, especially if the caller modifies the amount to 'turn the Star'. EN: 70
Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2 danses ved at dreje hele Diamonden 180° omkring dens center. Centers beholder håndfatning gennem Diamond Counter Rotate og Pointers skal vedblive at pege for at vise Diamond position. Dette er meget vigtige for hvis der er 3 eller flere hænder I center har danserne en tendens til at glemme hvem der skal flippe I den efterfølgende Flip The Diamond, specielt hvis Calleren modificerer 'Turn the Star'. DK: 70
• From a Wave, Ends remain Ends as Centers remain Centers. EN: 80
Fra en Wave, vedbliver Ends med at være Ends og Centers vedbliver med at være Centers. DK: 80
