   view (admin)

From applicable formations.

  1. Zig-Zag;
  2. Counter Rotate 1/4;
  3. Roll.

Sidetrack is a 3-part call.

Single Sidetrack [C3B]: From a 1 x 4 Column. Zig-Zag; Lockit (i.e., Counter Rotate with respect to the 1 x 4); Roll. Ends in a Single Double Pass Thru.

Split Sidetrack [C3B]: From a 2 x 4 or 1 x 8 Column. Zig-Zag; Split Counter Rotate 1/4; Roll.

Split Split Sidetrack [NOL]: From appropriate formations. Split the setup twice to work with one other dancer (who must be in your Generalized Tandem position). Zig-Zag; Hinge (i.e., Counter Rotate with respect to the 1 x 2); Roll.


  • From Columns, Single Sidetrack has the dancers working in the 1 x 4 formation; and Split Sidetrack has the dancers working in the 2 x 2 formation.
  • Unless Sidetrack is preceded by a modifier such as Split, Single, Once Removed, etc. the Counter Rotate 1/4 is always an All 8 Counter Rotate 1/4 (i.e., the 'big' one).
