As one movement, Step Thru, Trade, and Step to an opposite-handed Wave.
Everyone can Roll after a Trade The Wave.
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.
Alternatively, you can "point" at the dancer with whom you are to trade.
A right-hand wave becomes a left-hand wave, and vice-versa.
Be sure to pass Right-shoulders when doing the Trade.
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:
- The half-way formation is a Wave, and not Offset Mini-Waves.
- The starting formation is restricted to a Wave.
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.
