Find call: 

Single Wheel [A2]
   (Gordon Blaum 1961)
All levels:     

   view (admin)

From a Mini-Wave or Couple.

Each dancer works as if they were a Couple: all Wheel & Deal.

A Mini-Wave ends in Facing Dancers; a Couple ends in Tandem Dancers.

Alternate definition: As one movement, Hinge & Roll.

R-H Mini-Wave から:

Single Wheel
L-H Mini-Wave から:

Couple から:

Single Wheel

  • Single Wheel is a two-dancer call. To find the other dancer with whom you are working, break up the overall formation into appropriate adjacent groups of two.
  • There are two ways to think about Single Wheel:

    1. Conceptualization -- "Single" means that each dancer works as if they were a couple and everybody does the call. Single Wheel (& Deal) means do the Single version of Wheel & Deal. If you think of Single Wheel in this manner, you can more easily grasp other 'Single' extensions. For example, from a R-H Mini-Wave Box, consider a Single Ferris Wheel.
    2. Memorization -- Just memorize that Single Wheel is a Hinge & Roll, and be done with it. Whenever Single Wheel is called, just do a Hinge & Roll. Easy, right? Single Wheel's just another call to memorize. Why bother with all that conceptual stuff?
  • To start a Single Wheel, give a slight tug on the handhold that you have with the adjacent dancer. This gets both of you moving toward the correct direction.
  • From a Couple, Single Wheel is similar to Partner Trade except that instead of ending as a Couple, you end as Tandem Dancers (with the original Belle in front).

Single Wheel 3 Times:

Single Wheel 3 Times

Teamwork is required to successfully dance Single Wheel 3 Times.
  1. Do the first instance of the call;
  2. Verify that the resulting formation is 'reasonable' (properly aligned, symmetric, and dancers appear to be in the correct position);
  3. Re-evaluate your position within the new formation (determine who you will work with next);
  4. Do the second instance of the call;
  5. Verify that the resulting formation is 'reasonable';
  6. Re-evaluate your position;
  7. Do the third (and final) instance of the call.

For those of you who may be aspiring C4 dancers, contemplate what would happen from a 1x8 Line on the call "As Couples As Couples Single Wheel".

Hinge [Mainstream,A1]: 1/2 of a Trade.

  • From a Mini-Wave, a Hinge (also known as Single Hinge) is an Arm Turn 1/4.
  • From a Couple, a Hinge (also known as Partner Hinge) is 1/2 of a Partner Trade. That is, as one movement turn 1/4 to face and Step to a R-H Mini-Wave.

Single Ferris Wheel [C3A] (Walt Wentworth 1974): (1 つの動きとしての, Follow Thru & Roll)
