Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
Bounce {anyone} [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.

Notes:
  • 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.
