Split Counter Rotate fraction [A2]:

From Parallel Waves, Mini-Wave Columns, or other applicable formations.

Divide the overall formation into two equal-sized sub-formations (e.g., from a 2x4, work in each 2x2). Locate the center point of each sub-formation. Walk forward in an arc for a total of fraction of a circle, around the flagpole center of the sub-formation, keeping the same distance from the center of the sub-formation.

If the given fraction is 1/4, Parallel Waves end in Mini-Wave Columns and vice-versa.

Box Counter Rotate fraction [A2]: From a 2x2. Walk forward in an arc for a total of fraction of a circle, around the flagpole center of the 2x2, keeping the same distance from the center of the 2x2. Ends in a 2x2.

  • For Split Counter Rotate 1/2, find the center of your 4-dancer formation, then Counter Rotate 1/2 around that center point. From the starting formation shown above, this is danced like (each side) 'Ends Trade, Centers Trade'.
  • For Split Counter Rotate 1/4 Twice, do a Split Counter Rotate 1/4 (to end in Parallel Waves); now re-evaluate (divide the 2x4 formation into two 2x2 formations); (working in your 2x2) Split Counter Rotate 1/4.

Counter Rotate fraction [C1] (Lee Kopman 1973): From applicable formations. Walk forward in an arc, for a total of fraction of a circle, around the flagpole center of the set, keeping the same distance from the center of the set.

Lickety Split [C3B] (Lee Kopman): From an applicable 2 x 4. Ends Split Circulate as Centers Split Counter Rotate 1/4. Ends in a 2 x 4.

Tickle [C4]: From applicable formations. Hinge; Split Counter Rotate 1/4.
