Notes:

  • Everyone can Roll after a Trade The WaveEN: 40
  • Trade The Wave is often preceded with the phrase "take a peek (and)". In this case, dancers stay put and bend forward to take a quick glance at the other dancer in their wave facing the same direction; then they do the call. EN: 50
  • Alternatively, you can "point" at the dancer with whom you are to trade. EN: 60
  • A right-hand wave becomes a left-hand wave, and vice-versa. EN: 70
  • Be sure to pass Right-shoulders when doing the Trade. EN: 80
  • Trade The Wave is equivalent to "Those Facing the same direction Trade with each other" (i.e., a Once Removed Trade). In fact, I originally defined the call this way. However, I realized that the "Step Thru, Trade, and Step to an opposite-handed Wave" definition was better for two reasons: EN: 90
    1. The half-way formation is a Wave, and not Offset Mini-Waves. EN: 100
    2. The starting formation is restricted to a Wave. EN: 110

Partner Trade [Basic]:
From a Mini-Wave or Couple. Walk forward, while turning 180°, to exchange places with the adjacent dancer. When starting from a Couple, pass right-shoulders as you go. A Mini-Wave ends in a Mini-Wave, a Couple ends in a Couple. EN: 97
