Plan Ahead [C3A]
   (Lee Kopman 1975)
All levels:     

   edit def

From Facing Lines or other applicable formations. EN: 10

Centers Touch 1/4, Cross Concentric Vertical Tag The Line, Leaders Peel Left, Trailers Peel Right to end as a Couple (as in Sets In Motion) as the Outsides Circulate once and a half, Hinge, Cross Concentric Vertical 1/2 Tag, and Face In. EN: 20

Facing Lines ends in a Double Pass Thru. EN: 30

Plan Ahead
Centers Touch 1/4
as Ends Circulate
Centers Vertical Tag The Line
as Outsides 1/2 Circulate & Hinge
Centers Step Forward & First Left, Next Right
as Outsides Cross Concentric Vertical 1/2 Tag & Face In

  • When Plan Ahead is done from formations other than Facing Lines (e.g., Inverted Lines with the Ends Facing Out): the Ends must be careful to Circulate 1 & 1/2 before the Hinge. There is a tendency for the Ends to Hinge with the first dancer they meet. EN: 40
  • We have recently learned that there are callers who believe that the first part for the Centers is a 1/2 Circulate and Hinge (instead of Touch 1/4). This can lead to several other possible starting formations. EN: 50
