Inlet [C2]
   (Kip Garvey 1978)

   view (admin)

From Parallel Waves or applicable Parallel 3 & 1 Lines (Ends must be in Tandem; Lead End & adjacent dancer must be in a Mini-Wave).

Out-Facing End and adjacent dancer Recycle as the In-Facing End and adjacent dancer do your part of a Split or Facing Recycle adjusting to end in the Center Wave.

Ends in a 1/4 Tag.


Note: We have seen three different written definitions of Inlet, which leads to an ambiguity in the following example:

Case 1

Case 2

Case 3


  • Case 1: This uses the definition of Inlet given in this glossary and is considered correct by most of the people with whom we have spoken.
  • Case 2: The inneractives (In-Facing End and adjacent Center) Dodge inward to form a Box and then Recycle. Case 2 could be called as Cycle And Slant Recycle.
  • Case 3: This is the Mirror-image version. Some callers believe that the handedness of the Ends determines if the Mirror version of the call is to be done. We disagree. Case 3 should be called as Mirror Inlet.

Due to this ambiguity, most callers refrain from calling Inlet from the starting formation shown above.

Diamond Inlet [C4]: From Parallel Waves, 3 By 1 Lines, or other applicable formations. In-Facing Ends and adjacent do an Inlet, as Out-Facing Ends and adjacent dancers do a 2/3 Recycle. Ends in Twin Diamonds. Same as Outeractives (Out-Facing Ends and adjacent dancers) go 2/3, all Inlet.
