Notes:
  • The Very Ends and Very Centers should wait until the Centers of each side have completed the call before sliding together for the final Cast Off 3/4.
  • The most common dancer mistake we see is that the dancers who become the Very Ends after the initial Arm Turn 1/2 start wandering. If you become one of the Very Ends, stay in place and wait for a few beats until you are met by one of the Very Centers for the final Cast Off 3/4. Sometimes the hardest part of a call is waiting for something to happen.

Spin Chain The Line But anything [C3AV]: Resulting Centers replace the final Cast Off 3/4 with the anything call.

Fan Chain The Line [C3B]: From a Tidal Line or Facing Lines (in which case dancers first step to a R-H Tidal Wave). Centers of each side Cast Off 3/4 and Spread as Very Centers Trade; Very Ends and Very Centers Slide together and Cast Off 3/4. Ends in Parallel Lines.
