Magic Column Concept [C1]
(Dave Hodson 1979)

 Language:

A Magic Column typically consists of Parallel Columns in which the Center dancers are holding the opposite hands from the Outside dancers (i.e., the Outsides are holding R-H as the Centers are holding L-H, or vice-versa). EN: 10
En Magic Column består typisk af Parallelle Columns hvor Center danserne holder modsatte hånd end End danserne - se nedenstående eksempler. DK: 10

 L-H Magic Columns R-H Magic Columns

Magic Column Circulate [C1]:

From applicable Generalized Columns. In-Facing Ends and Out-Facing Centers Crossover Circulate as Others Circulate. An alternative way of thinking of this is that you do a Crossover Circulate if and only if your next Circulate would take you from an End to a Center or vice-versa. Otherwise do a normal Circulate. From normal Magic Columns, the traffic pattern has the Out-Facing Center dancer moving first (in front of the In-Facing End dancer who must wait). This is important in case the caller calls a Magic Column 1/2 Circulate, since sometimes this will cause you to pass Right-shoulders and sometimes Left-shoulders. EN: 20
Fra Magic Columns: Hver danser bevæger sig fremad i circulations mønsteret der er vist ovenfor. Hvis en End- og en Center-danser er ansigt til ansigt, skal de passere hinanden og her bestemmes passeringsreglen af hvilken skulder End har ind mod center. Er det højre skulder, passeres med højre skulder og visa versa. Center danseren skal gå først. Dette betyder at højrepasserings reglen er ophævet i dette Call. Man kan også sige at In-Facing End-dansere og Out-Facing Center-dansere laver en Cross-Over-Circulate mens de andre laver en Circulate. DK: 20

Note: On Magic Transfer The Column, the Outsides have a strong tendency to want to make a Wave of the wrong-handedness. It is the Centers (those doing the Arm Turn 3/4) who determine the handedness of the resulting Waves. The handedness of the resulting Waves is because of the ExtendEN: 100
Noter: I Magic Transfer The Column, har Outsides en tendens til at ville lave en Wave med forkert håndhold. Som altid er det Centers der bestemmer om det bliver en right- eller left-hand wave, da det afhænger af hvilken hånd de brugte til Cast Off 3/4. DK: 100
