Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
 
 

Right Wing anything:
Do the anything call as if you started as a Beau. That is, if you are a Belle, do the anything call as if you had first side-stepped to the left to become a Beau (i.e., assume that the starting formation is a Right-handed setup).

Left Wing anything:
Do the anything call as if you started as a Belle.

Notes: Kommentarer: Poznámky:

Standard applications:

Right Wing Follow Thru:

 
   
before före před
Right Wing Follow Thru
 imagine you are here
(everyone is a Beau)
 
after efter po

Beaus dance the call normally; The Trailing Belle does a Cross Extend & Hinge; The Lead Belle does a Step Thru & 1/4 Right.

Right Wing Follow Your Neighbor:

 
 
before före před
Right Wing Follow Your Neighbor
 
after efter po

Beaus dance the call normally, as Belles pretend that they are Beaus and do the call. The Trailing Belle does a Cross Extend & Cast Off 3/4, as the Lead Belle does a Step Thru & (in place) Right-face 3/4 turn.

Right Wing Transfer The Column:

 
   
before före před
Right Wing Transfer The Column
 
after efter po
Right Wing Transfer And Nothing
 
after efter po
Centers Cast Off 3/4 & all Extend
(done) (klart) (hotovo)

Harder applications:

Left Wing Circulate:

 
 
before före před
Left Wing Circulate
 
after efter po

Same as Beaus work Crossover: all Circulate.

Left Wing Spin The Top:

 
   
before före před
Left Wing Spin The Top
 
after efter po
Left Wing Arm Turn 1/2
 
after efter po
Fan The Top
(done) (klart) (hotovo)

From here, pretend that the starting formation is a Left-Hand Wave (i.e., everyone is a Belle). On the first part of the call, the Belles do a normal Left Arm Turn 1/2 whereas the Beaus do a Left-face U-Turn Back. The Beaus turn to the Left because they imagine that the starting formation is a Left-hand wave.


Examples where the cheat of 'Slide then do the call' doesn't work:

Right Wing Follow To A Diamond:

 
 
before före před
Right Wing Follow To A Diamond
 
after efter po
Leaders work Right Wing: all Follow Your Neighbor:

 
 
before före před
Leaders work Right Wing:
all Follow Your Neighbor
 
after efter po

Since only the Leaders are working Right Wing, the Leaders can't cheat by doing a Slide because the adjacent spot is occupied by another dancer.
