Twosome Concept -- [C3A]
(Clark Baker 1980)
 C3A:

 言語

A Twosome consists of two dancers working as a unit and obeying the following set of rules: EN: 10
Twosome では, 2 人がひとまとまりで動き (working as a unit), 以下のルールに従います: JP: 10

1. Throughout the given call, dancers retain their geographical orientation in the square with respect to the other dancer in their Twosome unit. This means that a dancer who started on the north side of their Twosome unit must always remain on the north side throughout the entire call. EN: 20
与えられたコールの全体を通して, Twosome のまとまりのもう 1 人と, square の中で, 地図での位置関係を保つように動きます. この意味は, Twosome のまとまりで「北側」でコールを始めた人は, コールの全体を通して「北側」にいなければならないということです. JP: 20
2. The two dancers in the Twosome unit are working as if they are one dancer. Therefore, as with concepts such as Tandem, As Couples, or Solid, never allow any other dancers to come between or break up the Twosome unit. The dancers within the Twosome unit must always be facing the same direction. EN: 30
Twosome のまとまりの人は 1 人であるように動きます. したがって, Tandem, As Couples, または Solid のコンセプトと同様に, Twosome のまとまりの間へ他の人を入れたり, まとまりを壊すことは許されません. JP: 30

The caller will usually designate who is to work as a Twosome by saying Couples Twosome, Tandem Twosome, or Siamese Twosome. If it is unambiguous as to which dancers are paired, the caller may simply say Twosome. EN: 40
コーラーは, 普通 Couples Twosome, Tandem Twosome, または Siamese Twosome と言い, 誰と一緒に動くかを指示します. もし, 誰とペアになるかがあいまいでなければ, コーラーは, 単に Twosome と言うこともあります. JP: 40

• There are several ways to think about Twosome: the idea originated from watching a pair of ice skaters doing 'shadow' maneuvers. While the skaters move, they can make a complete 360° turn, and yet the skater that started closest to the north side of the ring is still closest to the north side of the ring, and the other skater is closest to the south side of the ring. EN: 50
Twosome について, いくつかの考えがあります. アイス・スケーターのペアの動きを見ると, 2 人で 360° 回るとき, 北側に近い人は北側に近いことを保つように回り, 南側に近い人は南側に近いことを保つように回ることがあります. JP: 50
• One could also imagine a bar suspended over the Twosome dancers with strings attached to their heads like marionettes. The bar is rigid and unbreakable and, like a compass needle, always points in the same orientation. The dancers themselves can freely and individually turn suspended on their own string, but they can not change the direction in which the bar is oriented. EN: 60
Twosome の 2 人の上に横棒を取りつけて, 2 人の頭の真上どうしを, 操り人形のように, 糸で結んでみましょう. 横棒は, 「堅く -- 壊れなく -- 磁石の針のように同じ方を指し続ける」 としましょう. 各々の人は, 自由に一人で, 自分の糸の下で回れますが, 横棒が指している方向を変えることはできません. JP: 60
• Another way to think of Twosome is to imagine that the other dancer in your Twosome unit is like your counterpart in another square. If you start out as the #2 Lady, your counterpart in the adjacent square is also the #2 Lady. As you execute each call, imagine the other square moving closer and closer to your square, with your counterpart eventually moving adjacent to you. Even though you are both doing the exact same calls and movements, you can never switch places into the other square, so your counterpart will always be on the same side of you. EN: 70
Twosome のまとまりの相手の人を, 別の square にいる相手に似ていると考えることができます. もし, 自分が 2 組の女性でしたら, 相手は, 隣りの square の 2 組の女性です. もう 1 つの square が, コールを動くにつれて, 自分の square にどんどん近づいてくると考えてみましょう. そして, 相手の人が, 遂に自分の隣りに来たとしましょう. 2 人は, 全く同じコールの動きをしますが, 自分が「別の square へ入ってしまうこと」はありませんから, 相手は「常に自分から見て同じ方」にいます. JP: 70

• Before doing a Twosome movement, check to see which wall you are closest to, relative to the other dancer in your Twosome unit. After completion of the movement, you should still be closest to that wall. EN: 90
Twosome の動きを始める前に, Twosome のまとまりの相手の人との関係で, 自分がどちらの壁が近いかをチェックします. 動きを終えた後も, チェックした壁に近い方にいるべきです. JP: 90
• When dancing as a Twosome, do not firmly connect with the other dancer in your unit as you would with As Couples (holding adjacent hands) or In Tandem (placing a hand on the Leader's back). If you physically connect with the other dancer, you will be unable to dance properly since there will be a strong tendency to turn as a (solid) unit. When dancing Twosome, turning movements are always done individually! EN: 100
Twosome を踊るときは, As Couples (隣の人と手をとる) または Tandem (Leader に手を置く) のように, まとまりの相手の人と堅くつながってはいけません. もし他の人と物理的につながっていると, solid のまとまりで回ろうとする強い傾向があるので, 正しく踊ることができなくなるでしょう. Twosome を踊るときには, 回る動作は常に 1 人で (individually) 行います. JP: 100
• When I dance Twosome, I concentrate on not letting the other dancer get past me to my closest wall. I pretend I'm trying to keep my wife, with my credit card, from entering a fancy department store. EN: 110
私が Twosome を踊るとき, もう 1 人のダンサーが自分に近い壁の方へ自分を越えていかないように, 注意を集中させます. 私のクレジットカードを持っている妻を, 高級デパートへ入らないようにと, 距離を置いて見守っています。 JP: 110

Since all calls can ultimately be broken down into a few simple movements (such as individually turn 1/4 Right|Left, Hinge, etc.), dancers should thoroughly understand how to do the following basic Twosome movements: EN: 120
コールは, 結局のところ数少ないいくつかの簡単な動き (例えば 1 人で右または左へ 1/4 回ること, Hinge など) で分解することができるので, ダンサーは, 以下の基本的な Twosome の動きをどのように行うかについて, 徹底的に理解すべきです. JP: 120

• Twosome Roll, 1/4 Right, 1/4 Left, または U-Turn Back:
Individually do the given call (since these calls are done in place). EN: 130
1 人で与えられたコールをします (これらのコールはその場で行うので). JP: 130

{n}-some (or 1 By {n}-some) [C4]:
(where n is usually 3 or 4): n dancers, who must be relatively close to each other (having no other dancers between them) and facing toward the same direction, work as a unit following the rules for Twosome. EN: 810
(ここで n は普通 3 または 4): n 人が, 他と比べてお互いに近くにいて, 同じ方を向いていて, 自分たちの間に誰もいないとき, Twosome のルールに従ってひとまとまりで動きます. JP: 810

 1 By 3-Some Switch To A Diamondの前 後

The above example could also be called as: EN: 180

Inside Triangle work 3-some: all Switch To A Diamond.

Note: Be aware that the term 4-some may sometimes be used in circumstances not related to Twosome. For example, the caller might say 'Each 4-some' to tell the dancers on each side of the set to work together. Another example of this is when some callers use the term 'Interlocked Foursome' when they should use a more explicit term such as 'Interlocked Box'. EN: 190
