Notes:

  • For Tagging calls, there is an unspoken 'Back' (Scoot Back) in them (e.g., Tag Reaction means Tag Back Reaction). EN: 100
  • The outsides should adjust to form an In-facing Couple before doing the Chain Reaction. EN: 110
  • Don't rush this call! Teamwork is required for successful completion. Wait for all dancers to form the 1/4 Tag formation before starting the Chain Reaction. EN: 120

Examples:

Variations:

Instead of Reaction, the caller may give another call such as EN: 130
