Notes:

CONTRAST THE FOLLOWING:

Horseshoe Turn [A1] (Doug Johnston 1965): From Columns with the Ends Facing Out, or from other applicable formations. Ends Cloverleaf as Centers Partner Tag. Columns end in an Eight Chain Thru.

Tag The Line [Mainstream] (Willard Orlich 1969): From any Line of 4. Turn 1/4 in place toward the center of the line; Double Pass Thru. Ends in a Single Completed Double Pass Thru formation.

Partner Trade [Basic]: From a Mini-Wave or Couple. Walk forward, while turning 180°, to exchange places with the adjacent dancer. When starting from a Couple, pass right-shoulders as you go. A Mini-Wave ends in a Mini-Wave, a Couple ends in a Couple.

Partner Hinge [A1]: From a Mini-Wave or Couple. Do 1/2 of a Trade. Ends in a Mini-Wave. From a Mini-Wave, Partner Hinge is an Arm Turn 1/4; from a Couple, Partner Hinge is 1/2 of a Partner Trade (as one movement, Face each other and Step to a Right-hand Mini-Wave). The word 'Partner' is optional: the word 'Hinge' is sufficient to describe this movement. Usually, however, the caller uses the term 'Partner Hinge' from a Couple, and 'Single Hinge' from a Mini-Wave.

Snap [C4]: Partner Tag.
