Bounce is a 2-part call. EN: 50

Noter:
• The U-Turn Back is toward the same direction as the Veer. I.e., If you Veer Right, then the U-Turn Back is toward the Right. If you Veer Left, then the U-Turn Back is toward the Left. For the designated dancers, Bounce feels like an Any Shoulder Turn & Deal. Be sure to do the U-Turn Back toward the correct direction since the caller could add a Roll. EN: 60
• Determine who the designated dancers are before doing the Veer Back-to-Back, not after. For example, from Parallel Two-Faced Lines: Bounce The Leaders is a Veer Back-to-Back (now everyone is a Leader) followed by original Leaders U-Turn Back in flow direction. Similarly, from Parallel Two-Faced Lines: Bounce The Ends refers to the original Ends, not those who become Ends after the Veer Back-to-Back. EN: 70
