Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts

From a Double Pass Thru or a R-H 1/4 Tag.

Centers Pass Thru, Right | Left Turn To A Line and Spread to become #1 (Very End) and #3 in a Tidal Line as others Step Ahead and Veer Right | Left to become #2 and #4 in a Tidal Line.

Strut Right

  • If two directions are given, the original Centers take the first direction and the original Outsides take the second direction. If only one direction is given, everybody takes that direction.
  • The Centers always pass Right shoulders even if the call is Strut Left. The caller should say Left Strut Right|Left if a Left shoulder pass is desired.
  • If your given direction is Right, then you must end as a Beau (i.e., you want to end as if you are in a Right-hand Tidal Wave); Similarly, if your given direction is Left, you must end as a Belle.

Hint: The original Outsides should not move until the Centers have almost completed their part of the call, so that sufficient space is available for the Outsides to execute their part.
