Dancers ( and ; and ) end on the same spot and therefore take Right-hands. EN: 50

Notes:
  • Everyone starts with a HingeEN: 60
  • When the Outsides start in a L-H Mini-Wave, a common mistake is for the Outsides to 1/4 In & Step to R-H! From a Mini-Wave, Hinge & Trade is the same as Arm Turn 3/4, hence a L-H setup remains a L-H setup. EN: 70
  • The final Centers Cast Off 3/4 can be an Arm Turn 3/4, or a 'Push' Cast Off 3/4. EN: 80
