Scoot & Weave [A2]
(Lee Kopman 1974)
 A2:

There are two slightly different definitions for Scoot & Weave depending upon the starting formation.

From a Mini-Wave Box (or applicable T-Bone 2x2):
Scoot Back; Weave.
Ends in a Wave.

From a Single 1/4 Tag:
Extend; Arm Turn 1/2; Weave.
Ends in a Wave.

For the above definitions, Weave is equivalent to Leaders 1/2 Box Circulate as Trailers Cross Extend & Hinge. A precise definition of Weave is given below.

Weave [C1] (Lee Kopman 1974): From a Mini-Wave Box (or applicable T-Bone 2 x 2) or a Single Eight Chain Thru. Pass Thru or Step Thru; Ends turn 1/4 in place toward the shoulder just passed as Centers, using the opposite hand as the shoulder just passed, do an Arm Turn 1/4. Ends in a Wave.

Fra en Mini-Wave Box:

 førScoot & Weave efterScoot Back efterWeave (færdig)
Fra en Single 1/4 Tag:

 førScoot & Weave efterExtend & Arm Turn 1/2 efterWeave (færdig)

Noter:
• Weave is like an Any Hand 1/4 Thru, except that you don't touch the first dancer, and the resulting Centers touch the other Center dancer only for the last 1/4 turn.

• From a R-H Mini-Wave Box, Weave is like a 1/4 Thru.
• From a L-H Mini-Wave Box, Weave is like a Left 1/4 Thru.

The difference between Weave and 1/4 Thru is that there isn't much hand contact in a Weave. Weave was derived from Weave The Ring which has no hand contact.

• On a 1/4 Thru, Arm Turn 1/4 then the Centers Arm Turn 1/2.
• On a Weave, Pass Thru or Step Thru with the first dancer, then the Outsides turn 1/4 toward the shoulder just passed as the Centers start to pass the other shoulder, but when they meet, Arm Turn 1/4.

Scoot Back [Mainstream] (Lee Kopman 1969):

• From a Mini-Wave Box or applicable T-Bone 2 x 2. Leaders Box Circulate as Trailers Extend, Arm Turn 1/2, & Extend. A Mini-Wave Box ends in a Mini-Wave Box.
• From a Single 1/4 Tag. Extend; Arm Turn 1/2; & Extend. Ends in a Single 3/4 Tag.

Turn & Weave [C4] (Lee Kopman 1974):

• From a Single Double Pass Thru or Single 1/4 Tag:
Centers (if facing, Touch and) Arm Turn 1/2; Extend; Weave.
Ends in a Wave.
• From a Single Eight Chain Thru or Mini-Wave Box:
