   edit def

A Tandem unit consists of one dancer immediately behind another. Both dancers must be facing the same direction. The two dancers work together as if they were a single dancer to do the given call. Tandem is similar to As Couples [A1], but instead of being side-by-side, the dancers are front-to-back. EN: 10
En Tandem-enhed består af én danser umiddelbart efter en anden. Begge dansere skal have samme ansigtsretning. De to dansere arbejder sammen som om de var én danser når de udfører det givne kald. Tandem ligner As Couples [A1], men i stedet for at være ved siden af hinanden er man "front-to-back". DK: 10

Dancing hints: EN: 20
Danse hints: DK: 20
  • When the caller says Tandem, move vertically closer to the other dancer in your Tandem unit. If you find that you have to move a long way in order to get close, then your squares are probably too far apart and you should try to dance in tighter formations. EN: 30
    Når Calleren siger Tandem, så gå tættere på den anden danser i din Tandem-enhed. DK: 30
  • Typically, the trailing dancer places a hand on the back or shoulder of the lead dancer. This helps keep the unit connected together. The Japanese style is for the lead dancer to place their arms comfortably at their side and slightly behind them, extending their hands palms up and toward the trailing dancer behind while the trailing dancer places their hands in the leading dancer's palms. In either case, the idea is to physically connect the dancers so that they stay together as a unit. At a minimum, the Trailer should tap the Leader's shoulder to let the Leader know that the Tandem unit is ready. EN: 40
    Typisk vil Trailer-danseren lægge sin hånd let på skulderen af Lead-danseren da dette hjælper med at holde enheden sammen. DK: 40
  • When doing Arm Turns with another Tandem Unit, the Leader of each Tandem unit can join hands with the Trailer of the other unit. Tandem Arm Turns feel like Box Counter Rotates. EN: 50
    Når man laver Arm Turns med en anden Tandem-enhed kan Leaderen af hver enhed holde hånd med Traileren af den anden Tandem-enhed. Tandem Arm Turns føles som Box Counter Rotates. DK: 50
  • As with an As Couples unit, no dancers should ever come between the dancers within a Tandem unit. EN: 60
    Som i As Couples enheden, må ingen dansere komme mellem danserne i Tandem-enheden. DK: 60

Tandem of 3 (or 4): A one-faced Column of 3 (or 4) dancers work as a unit. EN: 70
Tandem of 3 (or 4): En Column bestående af 3 eller 4 dansere med samme ansigtsretning, arbejder som en enhed. DK: 70

As Couples CONCEPT [A1]:
Dancers side-by-side and facing the same direction (i.e., a Couple) work as a single dancer to do the given call. EN: 31
