|Step & Slide [A1]|
(Ed Fraidenburg 1967)
Centers Step Ahead as Ends Slide into the vacated adjacent Center position.
A Line of 4 ends in a 2 x 2 or a "Z".
From a One-Faced Line:
From an Inverted Line:
From a Wave:
From a Two-Faced Line:
From a 3 & 1 "Z":
The following examples show how to reestablish the two adjacent 4-dancer formations after Step & Slide is done from selected 8-dancer formations.
From Parallel Waves:
Dancers work in each group of 4 (i.e., each Wave),
From a 1 x 8 (Tidal setup), the Step & Slide is done on each side, then the space between the two groups is collapsed to form a compact setup. This is known as Square Breathing.
From a Tidal Line:
After doing the Step & Slide, collapse the space between the two groups of 4.
From a Tidal Wave:
Step & Flip [C1]: From a Line or other applicable 4-dancer formation. Centers Step Ahead as Ends Flip (180 °) into the adjacent Center position. Ends in either a Box (2 x 2) or a "Z" (4 spots within a 2 x 3 Matrix).
Step & Fold [C1] : From a Wave, Inverted Line or other applicable formations. Centers Step Ahead (1/2 Press Ahead) as Ends Fold. A Wave ends in a Mini-Wave Box; an Inverted Line ends in Tandem Couples.
Step And anything [C2]: From various formations. Centers Step Ahead (usually a Press Ahead); Ends do the anything call.
Slim Down [C4]:
From any 2 x 4 or other applicable formation.
Without turning, Centers move one position toward the nearest
unoccupied outside position as Outsides move one position toward the center.
Everyone does either a sidestep right, sidestep left, step forward, or step backward.
From Parallel Lines with the Centers facing out, Slim Down is the same as
Step & Slide.
