Any Hand Concept -- [A1]

The Any Hand CONCEPT is typically used when doing calls that always start with the Right-hand from setups in which some dancers start with the Right-hand and some dancers start with the Left-hand. Sometimes Any Hand is used on a call that can start with either hand, such as Swing & Mix or Shazam, as an aid to warn the dancers that they are in an unusual setup (typically an Inverted Line) where some dancers are starting with the Left-hand.

Notes:

  • Those starting the call must be in Mini-Waves. That is, the action must start with an Arm Turn, not with a 'Push' Cast.
  • Arm Turn 1/2 often becomes a Partner Trade.
  • Arm Turn 1/4 or 3/4 often becomes a 'Push' Cast Off 1/4 or 3/4.
  • Arm Turn 1/4 never becomes a Partner Hinge. That is, from a Couple, do a Push Cast 1/4, NOT a Partner Hinge.

Swing The Fractions Swing Thru  

Two-Faced CONCEPT [C3B]: From various formations. Replace each Arm Turn 1/2 (i.e., Swing or Slip) with a Partner Trade and do the given call. This allows calls such as Spin The Top to be done from a Two-Faced Line.
