- From a Two-Faced Line:
- Centers Cross Fold and all adjust to a Box
(Bounce The Centers);
- Box Counter Rotate 1/4;
Ends in Facing Couples.
This is a 3-part call, and Callers often call 2/3 Cross Cycle.
- From an applicable 2 x 2 (e.g., Facing Couples or Mini-Wave Box):
As one movement, (Facing or Box) Recycle & Slither.
Ends in a Two-Faced Line.
From a Two-Faced Line:
Centers Cross Fold
and adjust to a Box
Box Counter Rotate 1/4
- In practice, since 1/3 Cross Cycle is rarely called, dancers do not
adjust to make a box before doing the counter rotate 1/4. The first two parts of Cross Cycle
are danced as one smooth movement (similar to a Centers Cross Kick Off then Tandem (Right or Left) Touch).
- Cross Cycle can be disorienting for the Centers.
Think of Cross Cycle as Centers Cross Run; all Any Shoulder 1/2 Tag; 1/4 In.
This helps you get to the correct spot, facing the correct direction.
From Facing Couples:
- Beaus 1/2 Press Ahead and Trade (with each other)
as Belles do a normal Recycle (Dodge Left and Veer Left).
- Beaus pick up the opposite Belles as in Flutter Wheel.
From a Two-Faced Line, Cross Cycle is equivalent to Centers Back-to-Back Slither and all Recycle.
From a 2 x 2, Cross Cycle is equivalent to (facing) Recycle & Slither.
From a Mini-Wave Box, Cross Cycle is equivalent to Trail Off.
From a Box consisting of one Couple and one L-H Mini-Wave, it is illegal to call Cross Cycle
and expect the Couple to work Mirror.
The caller must explicitly say Mirror Cross Cycle.
From a 2 x 4, the term Split Cross Cycle should be used
for the 2 x 2 version of the call.
Split Cross Cycle
All 8 Cross Cycle [obsolete]:
From a 1/4 Line:
Cross Concentric Cross Cycle.
Ends in a 1/4 Line.
Most callers instead say Cross Concentric Cross Cycle.
All 8 Cross Cycle is analogous to All 8 Recycle [C1].
