  2. those who can Left Arm Turn 1/2;
  3. those who can Right Arm Turn 3/4;
  4. those who can Left Arm Turn 1/2;

Swing The Fractions is a 5-part call.

From Parallel R-H Waves:
 

before
Swing The Fractions
 
       
after
1/4 by the Right
(1/5)
 after
1/2 by the Left
(2/5)
 after
3/4 by the Right
(3/5)
 after
1/2 by the Left
(4/5)
 after
1/4 by the Right
(done)

Notes:

  • Start with the R-H, and alternating hands Arm Turn 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 (i.e., 1-2-3-2-1).
  • It is generally accepted that all Arm Turns must be done from Mini-Waves, not from facing dancers. Most callers and dancers believe it is inappropriate to call Swing The Fractions starting from a setup such as an Eight Chain Thru.
  • Swing The Fractions is a 'Those Who Can' call. Only those who have the appropriate hand joined can do the next part of the call.
  • 4/5 Swing The Fractions is commonly called.

From Facing Diamonds:

(1/5)
 after
1/2 by the Left
(2/5)
