|Link Up [C3A]|
(Lee Kopman 1977)
Leaders Cast Off 1/4 using the Outside dancer as the pivot point
Ends in Parallel Waves.
Hint: From Promenade, the designated Couple (those acting as Leaders) should continue Promenading until squared off to a wall and then 1/2 Press Ahead as the others bend in behind them to form Parallel Two-Faced Lines, then everyone Link Up. Dancing the call in this manner guarantees that the ending formation will be squared off to the walls.
Note: some people believe that Promenade is a legitimate starting formation for any call that can be done from Parallel Two-Faced Lines and is defined in terms of Leaders and Trailers. The calls commonly used in this way include Cast A Shadow, Link Up, and Wheel The Ocean | Sea.
The following calls (C3 and below) could also be called from Promenade:
Link Up But anything (Linking anything) [C4] : From Parallel Two-Faced Lines. Leaders Link Up as Trailers Step Ahead to form a compact formation ("normalize") and do the anything call. This is analogous to Busy anything [C3B].
