Counter Rotate fraction -- [C1]
   (Lee Kopman 1973)
C1:     

Language: or                 All   
   edit def

From applicable formations. EN: 10
Fra enhver formation hvor ingen dansere kigger direkte på, eller væk fra Flagpole center. DK: 10

Walk forward in an arc, for a total of fraction of a circle, around the flagpole center of the set, keeping the same distance from the center of the set. EN: 20
Hver danser bevæger sig fremad det angivne antal kvarte (1/4 hvis ikke andet er angivet) omkring Flagkole center af formationen idet man holder samme afstand fra dette center som om man er et hjul der drejer om center. Ved hver 1/4 man udfører Counter Rotate kigger man på en ny væg (dvs. man drejer 90°). DK: 20

Noter:

  • Counter Rotate cannot be done if a dancer is facing directly toward (or away from) the flagpole center of the set. EN: 30
  • If no fraction is given, assume 1/4. EN: 40
  • When starting from a symmetric setup, and everyone is active, the ending formation for Counter Rotate 1/4 is the same as the starting formation but rotated by 90°. EN: 50
    Når man starter fra en symmetrisk formation og alle er active, vil slutformationen for Counter Rotate 1/4 være den same som startformationen men roteret 90°. DK: 50
  • You may have to vary the distance from the center of the set to allow for square breathing if not everyone is active for the Counter RotateEN: 60
    Det kan forekomme at man skal variere afstanden fra centeret for at tillade Square-breathing (Udvidelse eller sammentrækning) hvis ikke alle er aktive i Counter-Rotate-Callet. DK: 60
  • You can try visualizing Counter Rotate 1/4 as if all of a sudden the formation was placed upon an empty merry-go-round, with the center of the square being the center of the merry-go-round, and somebody pushed the merry-go-round 1/4 of a circle (clockwise or counter-clockwise, whichever would cause you to move forward). Your formation would remain the same, you would still be the same distance from the Center, but your facing direction would have changed 90°. Note that some dancers might be on a merry-go-round which is turning in the opposite direction from yours. EN: 70
    Prøv at forestille dig Counter Rotate 1/4 som om formationen er placeret på en karusel med centeret af formationen placeret på centeret af karusellen og nogen skubber karusellen 1/4 omgang (med eller mod uret - i hvilken som helst retning der får dig til at bevæge dig fremad). Din formation er den samme, du vil stadigvæk have samme afstand fra Centeret men din ansigtsretning vil have skiftet 90°. Bemærk at nogle dansere måske skal gå modsat din retning. DK: 70

Split Counter Rotate fraction [A2]:
Split the formation into 2 equal sub-formations by drawing an imaginary line bisecting the long axis. Dancers in each sub-formation walk forward in an arc for a total of fraction of a circle, around the flagpole center of the sub-formation, keeping the same distance from the center of their sub-formation. From Parallel Lines or Columns work in each Box; from Diamonds work in each Diamond; from a 1 x 8 Line work in each Line. EN: 632
