Notes:
  • With Confidence is usually used as a suffix to the preceding call.
  • Dancers who meet in the Mini-Wave sometimes get confused as to how to orient the ending formation. Hence, it is important that the dancers who meet in a Couple simply step forward (to become Leaders in Parallel Two-Faced Lines) and stay put thus holding the spot for the other dancers.

Variations:

  • With Confidence But Hold The Wave
  • With Confidence But Hold The Two-Faced Line
  • Centers start a With Confidence (From a Galaxy)
  • Ends start a With Confidence (From Twin Diamonds)
