Recycle [Mainstream]
   (Lee Kopman 1974)

   view (admin)

From a Wave.

Ends Cross Fold (to face furthest centers) as Centers Fold behind Ends, follow them partway, then adjust to form a Couple.

Ends in Facing Couples.

(after Centers Fold)
(after sliding together
& turning 1/4)
forming Facing Couples

  • The end result of Recycle is as if the Ends did a Cross Fold as the Centers took a small step backward to form a Couple.
  • Original centers make a 360 degree turn.
  • Dancewise, Recycle is similar to having the Centers U-Turn Back (turning toward the adjacent End), then all Wheel & Deal.
  • Technically Recycle is a no-hands movement, but in practice, dancers join hands partway through the call. In our opinion, the sooner the hands are joined, the better the success rate.
  • In challenge dancing, Recycle (from a Wave) [C1] has a more precise definition:

    1. Centers Fold behind Ends and all adjust to a Mini-Wave Box;
    2. Box Counter Rotate 1/4;
    3. Roll.
