Aus einer Wave oder passenden Line of 4.

  1. Hinge;
  2. die Leaders tanzen ein Fold hinter die Trailers (die sich dabei nicht ausrichten);
  3. danach tanze ein Any Shoulder Double Pass Thru;
  4. dann tanze ein Peel Off in die Richtung der Schulter, mit welcher Du gerade passiert hast.

Endet in Facing Couples. Dies ist ein 4-teiliger Call.

Aus einer R-H Wave:

Linear Cycle
 nach

 nach
Leaders Fold
 nach
Left-Shoulder
Double Pass Thru
 nach
To The Left
Peel Off
(fertig)

Note dancers are offset in the 3rd and 4th diagrams.

Hinweise:

  • Mantra: Hinge, Fold, Follow, Peel.
  • Any Shoulder means to pass the most convenient shoulder.

    • When doing Linear Cycle from a L-H Wave, pass Left-Shoulders;
    • When starting from all other formations, pass Right-Shoulders.
  • Peel Off in direction of Shoulder Pass:

    • If passing Left-Shoulders, Peel Left (as one movement, Leaders flip to the left (180°) and step forward as Trailers Left-face U-Turn Back to end as a couple);
    • If passing Right-Shoulders, Peel Right (as one movement, Leaders flip to the right (180°) and step forward as Trailers Right-face U-Turn Back to end as a couple).
  • Although Linear Cycle is a no-hands movement after the initial Hinge, you may encounter dancers who try to hold onto your hand throughout the movement.
  • From a Wave, Linear Cycle is choreographically equivalent (and almost identical in flow) to Recycle & Sweep 1/4.
  • Historically, Linear Cycle was a 3-part call:
    1. Hinge;
    2. Vertical Tag The Line (or Vertical Left Tag The Line) without adjusting to the center line;
    3. Peel Off in direction of shoulder pass.

Aus einer One-Faced Line:
 

       
vor
Linear Cycle
 nach
Hinge
 nach
Leaders Fold
 nach
Right-Shoulder
Double Pass Thru
 nach
To The Right
Peel Off
(fertig)

Note: Linear Cycle from other than a Wave is not appropriate at Plus, since the Hinge is a Partner Hinge (an A1 call).

Partner Hinge [A1]: Nur aus einer Mini-Wave oder einem Couple. Mache die Hälfte von einem Trade. Endet in einer Mini-Wave. Aus einer Mini-Wave, Partner Hinge ist einen Arm Turn 1/4. Das Wort 'Partner' ist optional, weil 'Hinge' das Bewegungsschema ausreichend beschreibt. Die Caller benutzen normalerweise die Bezeichnung 'Partner Hinge' aus einem Couple, und 'Single Hinge' aus einer Mini-Wave.

Linear Action [C1] (Lee Kopman 1982): Aus einer Generalized 1/4 Tag oder anderen passenden Formationen. Die Centers tanzen ein Hinge & Box Circulate 1 & 1/2, während die Outsides ein Hinge & Trade tanzen; diejenigen, welche sich treffen (die 4 Centers) tanzen ein Cast Off 3/4, während die Anderen aufschließen (wie in Chain Reaction). Endet in parallelen Waves, parallelen 3 & 1 Lines, oder in einem Parallelogramm (falls die Outside Tänzer auf demselben Platz enden).

Linear (fraction) Tag [C4]: From a Wave or applicable Line of 4. Hinge; Leaders Fold; Extend to the given fractional Tag position. If no fraction is given, complete a full Tag The Line.

Linear Flow [C4]: From Parallel Waves or applicable Lines. Linear 1/2 Tag (Hinge; Leaders Fold, Extend to Parallel Waves); Split Circulate Twice; Centers Trade. Ends in Parallel Waves.
