Notes:

  • Do not add a Spread unless the caller explicitly says so. EN: 50
  • Grand expands a call normally done from a 4-dancer setup (such as a 2 x 2 or 1 x 4) into a call that involves more (typically 8) dancers (working in an 8-dancer setup such as a 2 x 4 or 1 x 8). EN: 60

    • From Columns, Grand usually means that the #1 dancer does the Leader's part of the call as the others do the Trailer's part of the call. (For example, from Columns, a Grand Scoot & Dodge has the #1 dancer Dodge as the others Grand Scoot Back [Triple Scoot]). EN: 70
    • From a 1 x n, Grand usually means that the very End dancer does the End's part of the call as the others do the Center's part of the call. (For example, from an 8-dancer Wave, a Grand Slither would have the Center 3 pairs of dancers slide nose-to-nose.) EN: 80
    • Other calls (A2 or below) that could easily be extended using the Grand Concept include EN: 85
      Dixie Style To A Wave, Extend, Fan The Top, Lockit, Pass & Roll, Peel & Trail, Scoot & Dodge, Slip, Slither, Spin The Top, Swap Around (from L-H 1/4 Box), Switch To A Diamond, Veer Right | Left, Walk & Dodge, and Wheel Thru (from R-H 1/4 Box).

    For some Grand calls, you need to re-evaluate your position as the call progresses. EN: 90

    There are some Grand calls that do no follow this definition of Grand (e.g., Grand Square). EN: 100

Occasionally Grand Follow Your Neighbor is called from T-Bones. In this case, dancers who are in Lines work Split (i.e., on your own side). EN: 110
