Galaxy Formation | Circulate

A Galaxy FORMATION consists of a Box inside of a Diamond. This is the opposite of an Hourglass FORMATION which consists of a Diamond inside of a Box.

Galaxy Circulate [C1]: From a Galaxy. The Circulate path of a Galaxy consists of 8 spots. Move up to the next position in the Galaxy (Box dancers move forward into the next outside Diamond position, as Diamond dancers move forward into the next Center position). Your new facing direction is determined by the dancer currently occupying the spot to which you will move. You must either face the same direction as that dancer (i.e., you are following his or her back), or 180° in the opposite direction (facing Galaxy Circulate). This means that sometimes your facing direction will change 90° and sometimes your facing direction will not change at all. From a normal R-H or L-H Galaxy, the traffic pattern of Galaxy Circulate results in all dancers moving in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction, respectively. If no dancers come to the same spot, then Galaxy Circulate ends in a Galaxy.


Ignore CONCEPT

There are two different uses of the Ignore CONCEPT.

In both cases the ignored dancers do not move.


Interlocked Diamond Formation

An Interlocked Diamond FORMATION consists of the same footprints as normal Twin Diamonds or Point-to-Point Diamonds. The only difference is that each Centermost dancer is working with the 3 dancers in the far Diamond.


Interrupt CONCEPT

  2. do the second given call;
  3. do the remaining portions of the first given call.

Jaywalk

From applicable 2-(or more) dancer formations.

All (or designated dancers) do a diagonal Pass Thru, to end in the other dancer's starting position and face opposite to the other dancer's original facing direction.


Linear Action

Centers Hinge & Box Circulate 1 & 1/2 as Outsides Hinge & Trade; those who meet (Center 4) Cast Off 3/4 as the Others move up (as in Chain Reaction).

Ends in Parallel Waves, Parallel 3 & 1 Lines, or a Parallelogram (if outside dancers end on the same spot).


Little

From a 3/4 Tag or other applicable formations.

Outsides 1/4 Right & Counter Rotate 1/4 as Centers Step & Fold.

A R-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel R-H Waves, a L-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel R-H Two-Faced Lines.


Magic Column Concept

A Magic Column typically consists of Parallel Columns in which the Center dancers are holding the opposite hands from the Outside dancers (i.e., the Outsides are holding R-H as the Centers are holding L-H, or vice-versa).

 
L-H Magic Columns R-H Magic Columns

Magic Column Circulate [C1]: From applicable Generalized Columns. In-Facing Ends and Out-Facing Centers Crossover Circulate as Others Circulate. An alternative way of thinking of this is that you do a Crossover Circulate if and only if your next Circulate would take you from an End to a Center or vice-versa. Otherwise do a normal Circulate. From normal Magic Columns, the traffic pattern has the Out-Facing Center dancer moving first (in front of the In-Facing End dancer who must wait). This is important in case the caller calls a Magic Column 1/2 Circulate, since sometimes this will cause you to pass Right-shoulders and sometimes Left-shoulders.


Make Magic

From Generalized Columns of 4 (usually a 1/4 Box or Magic Columns) or other applicable formations.

Any Out-Facing Centers who are facing an Outside dancer do a Pass Thru with that dancer as any In-Facing Centers diagonally Pull By (with each other) using outside hands.


"O" Formation

An "O" consists of dancers occupying the following spots in a 4 x 4 matrix:

"O" FORMATION
 

 
From here...   imagine you are here.

An "O" is considered to be Distorted Columns, as if the Centers slid apart from normal Columns.


Pass The Axle

From Eight Chain Thru, Parallel R-H Waves, or other applicable formations.

  1. Pass Thru;
  2. Centers Pass Thru as Ends Cross Cast Back;
  3. all Trade;
  4. Centers Trade.

Ends in Facing Lines. Pass The Axle is a 4-part call.


Percolate

From Parallel Waves, applicable Parallel Lines, Eight Chain Thru, 2 x 4 T-Bones, or other applicable formations.

  1. Circulate;
  2. 1/2 Circulate;
  3. Those in the Center Line do a Hinge & Cross as the Others Any Hand Turn Thru.

Usually ends in Back-to-Back Lines or T-Bones (with everyone facing out).


Phantom Concept

The idea for the Phantom CONCEPT is to overlap two sets of Parallel Columns | Lines | Waves at 90° to each other, filling in the blank spots with "ghost dancers."

Do the given call working with imaginary dancers (i.e., Phantoms). Assume that the Phantoms are in whatever position, have whatever facing direction, and are of whatever sex is necessary in order to execute the given call. The call is then danced with both the dancers and the Phantoms participating. Keep track of the Phantoms that you are working with and reserve space for them at the completion of the call.


Plenty

From a Generalized 3/4 Tag (usually a R-H 3/4 Tag) or other applicable formations.

  1. Little (Outsides 1/4 Right & Counter Rotate 1/4 as Centers Step & Fold);
  2. Split Circulate twice;
  3. Outsides Counter Rotate 1/4 and Roll as the Center four Concentric 1/2 Zoom.

Usually ends in a 1/4 Tag.


Prefer CONCEPT

The Prefer CONCEPT does not have a clear-cut definition and in most cases is call-dependent.

In general, the 'Preferred' dancers do the first part of the call, the given part of the call, or the most obvious or active part of the call. The caller will usually say 'Prefer the anyone: anything' or 'anyone is Preferred: anything.' The caller may also indicate which part of the given call the Preferred dancers are to do.

Relay The Shadow

From a Tidal Wave, Facing Lines, or other applicable formations.

Rotary anything [C2]: From an Eight Chain Thru (or Parallel R-H Waves). Right Pull By; Outsides Courtesy Turn & Roll as Centers Step To A L-H Wave and do the anything call. Ending formation (dependent upon the anything call) can be Parallel Lines, Diamonds, Hourglass, etc.


Rotate

Rotates (Rotate, Reverse Rotate, Single Rotate, and Reverse Single Rotate) are listed on different challenge lists according to the starting formation.

At C1,
Rotates can only be called from a Generalized Squared Set, or from similar formations (e.g., from Columns, the Ends only).
At C2,
Rotates can also be called from Parallel Lines or from a 2 x 2 (e.g., In Your Block Single Rotate 1/4).
At C3B,
Rotates can also be called from Columns.

Procedure for dancing Rotates:
  1. Identify the center point of your setup.

    The center point of your setup is the very center point of the square (commonly called the "flagpole center") except in the following cases:

    1. If you are in a 2 x 4 formation and are in Lines, the center point is the Center of each Box (i.e., work Split). If you are in a 2 x 4 T-Bone, the center point for the Column dancers is the flagpole center, whereas the Line dancers are working Split.
    2. If Rotate is preceded by the term Split, then divide your formation into two equal subformations. The center point is the Center of your subformation. From a 2 x 4, Split means to divide the setup into two 2 x 2s, not two 1 x 4s.
    3. If Rotate is preceded by the name of a formation in which to work, the center point is the Center of that formation. For example, from Columns consider 'Each Column Single Rotate 1/4'. In this case, the center point is the Center of the 1 x 4 setup.
  2. Turn 1/4 relative to that center point according to the following rules:

    RotateAs Couples 1/4 To Promenade
    Reverse RotateAs Couples 1/4 To Reverse Promenade
    Single Rotate Individually 1/4 To Promenade
    Reverse Single Rotate Individually 1/4 To Reverse Promenade

    1/4 To Promenade
    Turn 1/4 so that your left shoulder is toward the Center of your formation.
    1/4 To Reverse Promenade
    Turn 1/4 so that your right shoulder is toward the Center of your formation.
  3. Counter Rotate the given fraction around that center point.

    From a Squared Set, active dancers work around the outside of the set. The inactive dancers should move into the center of the set.


Scatter Scoot

From Parallel Waves or applicable T-Bone 2 x 4s.

Leaders (all 8) Circulate as Trailers Scoot Back.

Parallel Waves end in Parallel Waves.


Shakedown

From Back-to-Back Couples or a T-Bone 2 x 2 in which everyone is a Leader.

Shakedown:
As one movement, Belles 1/4 Out & Run as Beaus Run & Roll.

Left Shakedown:
As one movement, Beaus 1/4 Out & Run as Belles Run & Roll.

Back-to-Back Couples ends in Facing Couples.


Siamese CONCEPT

Siamese means 'As Couples or In Tandem'. That is, those who are a Couple work As Couples, and the others work In Tandem to do the given call.

Split [Square Thru] Concept

From a T-Bone setup.

Those facing (or those in a R-H Mini-Wave) Right Pull By & individually turn 1/4 to face the inactive dancers; all Finish the given call.

A Wave ends in a Mini-Wave Box, an Inverted Line ends in Tandem Couples.


Stretch Concept

From applicable 8-dancer formations.

Do the given 4-dancer call with the resulting Centers ending in the far Center positions. The given call must be a call that can be done with four dancers.

To get to the proper ending position, it is always possible to do the call in each group of 4, and then those who end as the centermost 4 dancers do a 'Substitute' with each other, moving away from the dancers with whom they have done the call. To dance this smoothly, the substitution is accomplished at some time during the call. This optimal time (usually toward call completion) varies and is dependent upon the call.


Swing & Circle (fraction)

From a Double Pass Thru, 1/4 Tag, or other applicable formations.

Centers (Step To A Wave if not already in a Wave) Swing-Slip; Outside 6 move clockwise (if the End of the Center Wave is facing clockwise) or counter-clockwise (if the End of the Center Wave is facing counter-clockwise) one position within the Outside Six and adjust as necessary to end in a 1/4 Tag.

T-Bone Concept

T-Bone is a name given to any (usually rectangular) setup in which at least one dancer's facing direction is 90 degrees off relative to another dancers' facing direction. The word 'T-Bone' is typically not said unless the caller wishes to emphasize that the dancers should pay attention.

When doing calls from T-Bone formations, do your part of the given call. Assume that dancers T-Boned to you are facing in whatever direction is necessary for you to do your part of the call. Usually, you will not interact much with those who are T-Boned to you, and the call may feel quite different than when done from a normal setup.


Tally-Ho

From Parallel Waves, applicable Parallel Lines, Trade By, applicable 2 x 4 T-Bones, or other applicable formations.

1/2 Circulate; those in the resulting Center Line|Wave Hinge & 1/2 Box Circulate as the Others Trade; those who meet Cast Off 3/4 as the Others move up (Phantom Hourglass Circulate).

Triple Column | Line | Wave Formation

A Triple Column | Line | Wave is the name of a formation consisting of three adjacent 1 x 4 formations (Columns, Lines, or Waves) some of which contain phantom positions. Work with the dancers and phantoms within your 4-spot formation. Keep track of the phantoms and allow space for them upon the completion of the call. There should be a total of 12 dancer | phantom positions before and after each call.

Centers Step Ahead and Trade as Ends 1/4 In, Step Ahead and do the anything call.


Twist The Line

From a Line with the Centers facing the same direction.

Twist The Line is a sex-dependent call since it involves a Star Thru.


Vertical (fraction) Tag (The Line)

From a non-T-Bone 2 x 2.
