Notes:

  • If the Centers start in a Two-Faced Line, their part is danced as an Any Shoulder 1/2 Tag, Trade, and Counter Rotate 1/4.
  • If the Centers start in a Wave, their part is danced as the Very Centers slide Back-to-Back to exchange places, 'Push' Cast Off 3/4 and Pass In (Counter Rotate 1/4).

Variation: Interlocked Counter But Centers Cast Off 1/2 (instead of 3/4). This variation is not well defined. There are two different ways (resulting in different ending formations) that the Centers could do the Cast Off 1/2:

  1. Once Removed Cast Off 1/2; or
  2. Very Centers 'Back-to-Back Slither' then Cast Off 1/2.

We disapprove of the above variation since it is ambiguous, but would opt for the first case if it was encountered while dancing.

Counter [C2] (Lee Kopman): From a 3/4 Tag or other applicable formations. Centers Cast Off 3/4 and Counter Rotate 1/4 as Outsides Cast Back, Touch 1/2, and Step & Fold. A R-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Waves; a L-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Two-Faced Lines.
