From an Eight Chain Thru (or Parallel R-H Waves).

Right Pull By; Outsides Courtesy Turn as Centers L-H Star 1/2 to face the Outside Couple.

Ends in an Eight Chain Thru.

Cross Chain Thru
Right Pull By
Outsides Courtesy Turn
as Centers L-H Star 1/2


  • For those coming into the Center, the result of the L-H Star 1/2 is as if you had done a Cross Trail Thru (but it is danced similar to a Belle Walk, Beau Dodge followed by a Walk & Dodge).
  • By definition, the Roll direction for all dancers is toward the Left. This was done so that a Cross Chain Thru & Roll is identical to Cross Chain & Roll. For example, Cross Chain Thru, Boys Roll means Boys Cross Chain & Roll as Girls Cross Chain Thru.

Variations: Star 3/4, Star one full turn.
