  • The Courtesy Turn movement for the new Centers (after the R-H Pull By) is sometimes described as 1/4 Out; Courtesy Turn & 1/4 more. We dislike this definition for 2 reasons: EN: 50
    Die Courtesy Turn Bewegung für die neuen Centers (nach dem Right Pull By) wird manchmal als 1/4 Out; Courtesy Turn & 1/4 more beschrieben. Aus folgenden zwei Gründen gefällt uns diese Definition nicht: DE: 50
  • The original Outside Belle's part is somewhat awkward because there is first a 1/4 Out (to the Right) and then Courtesy Turn (to the Left) 3/4, instead of just a smooth 180° Courtesy Turn. EN: 60
    Der Teil des originalen Outside Belle ist ein wenig unangenehm, weil zuerst ein 1/4 Out (nach rechts) und dann ein Courtesy Turn (nach links) 3/4 getanzt würde, statt einfach ein reibungsloser 180° Courtesy Turn. DE: 60
  • If you advance into C3, the caller may call a Left Chain The Square in which case we believe it is easier to remember to have the new Centers Step To A R-H Wave & then the Very Centers always turn the Ends. If, instead, you were to 1/4 Out, you can easily become confused as to who turns who. EN: 70
    Wenn Du ins C3 fortschreitest, kann der Caller ein Left Chain The Square callen, dabei glauben wir, daß es einfacher ist, daran zu denken, daß die neuen Centers zu einer R-H Wave gehen müssen und dann die Very Centers immer die Ends drehen müssen. Wenn Du statt dessen ein 1/4 Out gemacht hättest, kannst Du leicht durcheinander kommen, wer jetzt wen drehen muß. DE: 70

  • After the new Centers Step To A Wave, it is always the Centers of the Wave that take the Ends back to where the Ends came from. EN: 80
    Nachdem die neuen Centers die Wave gebildet haben, ist es immer der Center - Tänzer der Wave, der den End - Tänzer dahin zurückbringt, wo dieser hergekommen ist. DE: 80
