From a Generalized 1/4 Line or other applicable formations.

  2. Split Circulate twice (usually danced as a Tandem Partner Trade or Reverse The Pass);
  3. Outsides Counter Rotate 1/4 and Roll as the Centers Concentric 1/2 Zoom.

Usually ends in a 1/4 Tag.

This is a 3-part call.

  • After doing the Split Circulates, if all Centers are facing Out they U-Turn Back (away from the Center of the Set) and Touch. If all Centers are facing In, they Touch.
  • Historically, callers have called Interlocked Plenty from Twin Diamonds, in which case the Outsides were expected to 'go As You Are' (i.e., omit the 1/4 Right). This usage is typically frowned upon today. In our opinion, the caller should explicitly state something like 'Outsides go As You Are' or 'Centers Start A' so that the outsides do not start with a 1/4 Right.
  • As with a normal Plenty [C1], callers often Replace the Split Circulates (historically known as turning the Stars) with another call or Interrupt the Split Circulates at various positions with other calls.

Interlocked Scoot & Plenty [C3A]: From a 1/4 Line. Interlocked Scoot Back; Outsides 1/4 to the handhold and Counter Rotate 1/4 as Centers Step & Cross Fold; Split Circulate twice; Outsides Counter Rotate 1/4 and Roll as the Centers Concentric 1/2 Zoom. Ends in a 1/4 Tag.

Plenty [C1] (Lee Kopman 1972): From a Generalized 1/4 Tag or other applicable formations. Little (Outsides 1/4 Right & Counter Rotate 1/4 as Centers Step & Fold); Split Circulate twice; Outsides Counter Rotate 1/4 and Roll as the Centers Concentric 1/2 Zoom. Usually ends in a 1/4 Tag.
