Notes:
  • Think Leaders Right, Trailers Left. The movement is clockwise with respect to the Center of the 2 x 2.
  • Dancers with hands joined at the start of the call have opposite hands joined at the end of the call.
  • Turn To A Line is almost the exact opposite of a Turn & Deal. It dances very much like a Turn & Deal (i.e., 'Turn-Step-Turn').

Zig-Zag [A2] (Bill Shymkus and Jack Lasry 1968): From a Generalized Tandem or other applicable formations. Leaders 1/4 Right as Trailers 1/4 Left. A Generalized Tandem ends in a R-H Mini-Wave.

Single Turn To A Line [C3A]: From Tandem dancers, Facing dancers, or Back-to-Back dancers. As one movement, Zig-Zag, Step Thru, and turn 1/4 toward your initial turning direction. Ends in a Couple or a Mini-Wave.
