Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
 
 

  1. Each side do the given call;
  2. Centers do the given call;
  3. Each side do the given call;
  4. Centers do the given call.

This is a 4-part CONCEPT.

Note: If the given call can be done from either a Box or a Line, (e.g., from Parallel Waves, 1/2 Crazy Counter Rotate 1/4) do the Box version of the call.

(1/4)
 after
Inside Triangles Circulate
(1/2)
 
 
after

(3/4)
 after
Inside Triangles Circulate
(done)

In the above example, Crazy Triangles means Outside Triangles do the call; Inside Triangles do the call; Outside Triangles do the call; Inside Triangles do the call.

CONTRAST THE FOLLOWING (assuming Parallel Waves or Columns):

On Crazy Circulates, the caller can optionally give a series of 4 numbers indicating the number of Circulates to do at each part. For example, a Crazy Circulate 1-2-2-3 would be each side Circulate once; Centers Circulate twice; each side Circulate twice; Centers Circulate 3 times.

Reverse Crazy CONCEPT [C2]: Centers do the given call; each side do the given call; Centers do the given call; each side do the given call. This is a 4-part concept.
