Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
Central Concept [C3B]
 
 

Do the Centers part of the anything call. EN: 10

If the starting formation is a 2 x 4 and if the Centers part of the anything call can be done from either a 1 x 4 or a 2 x 2 (e.g., Counter or Detour), then work in the 2 x 2. For this case, the caller should specify in which setup the dancers are to do the call (e.g., Each Wave do a Central Counter). EN: 20

Note that the above list of calls only includes calls in which the Centers remain Centers throughout the entire call. For example, on calls such as Sets In Motion or on Strut Right | Left, the Centers do not end as the Center 4 dancers. On these calls there are normally some outside dancers who end in the Center. Hence, on the Central version of these calls, since there are no outside dancers involved it is ambiguous where the dancers end. Do they leave space for phantoms? EN: 40
