Ripple (The Line | Wave) | n -- [C2]
   (Royce Waugh 1966)
C2:     

Language: or              All   
   view (admin)

From a Line or Alamo Ring.

Designated dancers, working toward the Center of the Line, successively do a Partner Trade with each dancer until reaching the far end of the Line. Ripple n means to Trade with a total of n dancers. n can include a fraction (e.g., Ripple 2 & 1/2 means to Partner Trade with 2 successive dancers and then 1/2 Partner Trade with the third dancer).

Notes:

  • When Ripple is called from a 1 x 8 Line, work on each side unless otherwise specified. Note however that a call such as Very Ends Ripple {n} where n is greater than 3 forces the designated dancers to cross the Very Center and work with dancers from the other side.
  • The caller can specify the direction toward which the designated dancers are to begin (e.g., Head Lady Right Ripple 2). From an Alamo Ring, the direction must always be specified.
  • If no direction is specified, the designated dancers do the first Trade moving toward the Center of the Line.
  • There may be more than one designated dancer. For example, from a Wave, the call could be Ends Ripple 2.

Rolling Ripple n By n (By n) [C4] (Lee Kopman 1984): From a Line or Alamo Ring. Designated dancer Ripple the first given number; new dancer occupying designated dancer's original starting position Ripple the next given number; repeat part 2 for each additional given number.
