From a Diamond.

Centers do your part Diamond Circulate as Points Flip In (180°) towards the the nearest Center position.

The original centers end on the same spot,
so they step to right hands, and the overall
ending formation is offset


  • Flip In means to slide inward one position while turning 180° toward that direction.

    Flip is similar to a Run, except that Flip is done along the same plane, whereas Run has the dancer moving along an arc.

  • Points take the inside path (since they are flipping toward the center),
    and Centers take the outside path (since they are moving in an arc).

Reverse Flip The Diamond [C2]: Aus einem Diamond. Die Centers tanzen ein Phantom Run (ein Flip voneinander weg), während die Points ein Diamond Circulate tanzen. Endet in einer Line.

Cut The Diamond [Plus] (Lee Kopman 1973): Aus einem Diamond. Centers machen ihren Teil von Diamond Circulate, während die Points zusammenrutschen und Trade, um in der entfernten Centerposition zu enden. Ein normaler Diamond endet in einer Two-Faced Line.

Flip The Hourglass [A2] (Tim Ploch): Aus einem Hourglass. Outsides flip in (Phantom Run), während Centers Hourglass Circulate. Endet üblicherweise in Parallel Lines.
