Dancing Hint: EN: 60
  • Everyone does a Right-face U-Turn Back exactly once during the call, but only the original dancers coming into the middle do the Turn Thru. EN: 70

  • Pass & Roll is a 4-part call. EN: 80
  • Left Pass & Roll is the mirror image of Pass & Roll. EN: 90
  • From a 1x4, some callers add the word 'Single' before calling Pass & Roll. They think that since the call is normally done from a 2 x 4 (an Eight Chain Thru formation), 'Single' allows the call to be done from a 1 x 4. This is an incorrect usage of the term Single. The word 'Single' is not required. EN: 100
  • Some glossaries define Pass & Roll as a Touch; Scoot Back; and Split Circulate. It is not recommended that you memorize this cheat definition for at least two reasons: EN: 110
    1. Pass & Roll is a 4-part call, whereas the cheat given above is a 3-part call. If the caller fractionalizes the call (for example, 7/8 Pass & Roll ends in a R-H Diamond), you're in trouble. EN: 120
    2. Callers sometimes use parts-related concepts such as (from Magic Columns) Those Facing Start Pass & Roll, or (from Trade By or R-H 3/4 Tag) Finish A Pass & Roll. If you use the cheat definition, you may not be able to understand or execute these variations. EN: 130
  • Pass & Roll can also be done from a R-H Mini-Wave Box. In this case, the first Pass Thru is really quick (you may need to "rear-back" to see where you are). EN: 140
