Noter:
  • Cast Back can also be done by an individual dancer if the caller also specifies a direction. EN: 40
    Cast Back kan også udføres af en individuel danser hvis Calleren også specificerer en retning. DK: 40
  • Cast Back and Cross Cast Back are positional calls in which normal square breathing (expanding and contracting formations as the long and short axes vary) does not apply. The inactive dancers do not move or adjust in any manner. EN: 50
  • On Cross Cast Back, if active dancers start side-by-side (as a Couple), they pass Left shoulders. Historically, dancers have always passed Left-shoulders since this is a 'Cross' movement; however, CALLERLAB once 'simplified' the shoulder-passing rules, and many dancers were henceforth taught to pass Right shoulders. The current CALLERLAB definition of Trail Off (from Tandem Couples) states that dancers do a Half Sashay (Belle in front of Beau) & Peel Off, hence a Left shoulder pass. Please be careful when dancing Cross Cast Back as you may encounter some dancers who will insist on passing Left shoulders and other dancers who will insist on passing Right shoulders. EN: 60
    I en Cross Cast Back, hvor danserne starter side-by-side (som Couple), skal de passere venstre skulder!! - akkurat som i Trail Off. update DK: 60
