Bounce {anyone} [C2]
(Lee Kopman 1982)
 C2:

From a Two-Faced Line.

1. Veer Back-to-Back;
2. designated dancers U-Turn Back in flow direction.

Ends in a 2 x 2.

Bounce is a 2-part call.

• 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.
• 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.

Bounce The Belles:

 Bounce The Bellesの前 Veer Rightの後 after Belles U-Turn Backtoward the right (終わり)
Bounce The Boys & Roll:

 Bounce The Boys & Roll( = Boy)の前 Veer Leftの後 after Boys U-Turn Backtoward the left (終わり) Rollの後 (終わり)

Single Bounce anyone [C2]: From a Mini-Wave. Single Veer Back-to-Back (Step Thru); designated dancers U-Turn Back toward the direction of the Veer.

Single Bounce The Boys:

 Single Bounce The Boys( = Boy)の前 後

For the designated dancers, Single Bounce feels like a Single Wheel.

• Bounce Nobody (just Veer Back-to-Back);
• Bounce Everybody;
• Line of 6 ( または 8) Bounce anyone.
