Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
Jaywalk [C1]
 
 

From applicable 2-(or more) dancer formations.

All (or designated dancers) do a diagonal Pass Thru, to end in the other dancer's starting position and face opposite to the other dancer's original facing direction.

Notes:
  • Jaywalk is a 2-dancer call.
  • A Jaywalk can be a Pass Thru, Diagonal Pass Thru, or you can turn up to 90° (as in a Facing Diamond Circulate).
  • Always pass Right shoulders. This is important since the caller could call 1/2 Jaywalk.
  • Take the original opposite facing direction of the dancer who was originally occupying your ending spot.
  • Before moving, point at the dancer with whom you are to Jaywalk. This ensures that the other dancer realizes that they are working with you.
  • If you are diagonally facing more than one dancer, Jaywalk with the closest dancer on your half of the formation.
