Bounce anyone -- [C2]
   (Lee Kopman 1982)

Language: or              All   
   view (admin)

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
Veer Right
Belles U-Turn Back
toward the right

Bounce The Boys & Roll:

Bounce The Boys & Roll
( = Boy)
Veer Left
Boys U-Turn Back
toward the left

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)

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


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