Spin Chain The Gears:

Spin Chain The Gears
Arm Turn 1/2
Centers Cast Off 3/4
medan Ends U-Turn Back
Very Centers Trade
as Outsides slide inward
to form two Stars
Star 3/4
Very Centers Trade
Center Wave Cast Off 3/4
as Ends U-Turn Back
by flipping away from center

  • After initial Arm Turn 1/2, new Ends U-Turn Back and slide inward, placing their hand inward to form a star.
  • Don't turn the star unless there are 4 dancers in it. If you turn the star with only 3 dancers, the missing dancer is unable to catch up, and your square will break down.
  • The last part for the Outsides can also be thought of as a Peel Off, since the movement is U-Turn Back by flipping away from center. Be sure to turn away from the Star, because if you turn toward it, you may collide with those doing the final Cast Off 3/4.


  • Star 1/4, Star 1/2, Star 3/4
  • Don't Turn The Star (Vrid inte stjärnan)
  • Some callers call Spin Chain The Gears from a Tidal Wave. Although there is nothing in our definition to preclude this, we believe this usage is outside the range of the accepted usage for this call.

Spin Chain Thru [Mainstream] (Rod Blaylock 1967): Från Parallel Waves, Eight Chain Thru eller andra tillämpliga formationer. Arm Turn 1/2; Centers Cast Off 3/4; Very Centers Trade; Centers Cast Off 3/4. Slutar i Parallel Waves. Detta är ett 4-delars call.

Spin Chain And Circulate The Gears [C4]: Samma som Spin Chain The Gears utom att efter varje U-Turn Back, gör de som gjorde U-Turn Back en Circulate på utsidan.
