Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
 
 

A n By 1 Diamond consists of two lines of n (2 or 3) and two single dancers, forming a diamond formation. See diagrams below.

 
This is a 3 By 1 Diamond
(6 Centers)
 Another 3 By 1 Diamond
(2 Centers)

Note: The n By 1 Diamond concept is not well defined and seems to be limited to a specific set of calls. Some callers want the dancers in the Line of n to do their part as if the Line of n was Solid. Some callers want the dancers in the Line of n to do their part working Concentric.
