Rolling Ripple n By n (By n) -- [C4]
   (Lee Kopman 1984)

Language: or           All   
   view (admin)

From a Line.

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.

#1 Boy ()
Rolling Ripple 3 By 1 & 1/2
#1 Boy ()
Ripple 3
#1 Girl ()
Ripple 1 & 1/2

Note: Rolling Ripple should be danced piece by piece. Wait until each Ripple has been completed before starting the next Ripple. This is especially true from Lines or Alamo Rings. For example, from a Tidal Wave, consider a Very Ends Rolling Ripple 6 By 3.

Ripple (The Line | Wave) | n [C2] (Royce Waugh 1966): From a Line or Alamo Ring. Those designated start toward the Center of the Line and 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).
