Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
With The Flow [C1]
 
 

From Facing Couples.

This call must be preceded by a call in which the dancers have some sort of turning flow (i.e., all dancers are moving in a Clockwise or Counter Clockwise direction). Any call that can be followed by Sweep 1/4 can also be followed by With The Flow.

The dancers closest to the flow direction Walk (Circulate) as the others Dodge.

Ends in a Mini-Wave Box.

Alternative definition: From Facing Couples & preceded by a call in which everyone's Rolling direction is the same. If the Rolling direction is Clockwise (to the Right), then the Walk & Dodge is Clockwise (Beau Walk, Belle Dodge). Similarly, if the Rolling direction is Counter-Clockwise (to the Left), then Belle Walk, Beau Dodge.

The following is a partial list of calls that could be used at C2 to precede With The Flow:

Bend The Line (2FL) Flutter Wheel Right & Left Thru
Cast Off 3/4 (2FL) Grand Chain Eight Shakedown
Chain Down The Line Ladies Chain Sweep fraction
Courtesy Turn Linear Cycle Turn & Deal (R-H 2FL)
Cycle & Wheel Recycle (Wave) Wheel & Deal
Ferris Wheel (Centers) Reverse Flutter Wheel Wheel Around (Couples Back-to-Back)

Notes:

  • Go with the body flow. If it feels awkward, then you did it wrong.
  • With The Flow may cause you to stop 'cheating' certain calls (e.g., Head Ladies Chain With The Flow).

Flowing anything [C4]: Do a With The Flow; then Finish the anything call (i.e., Replace the first part of the anything call with a With The Flow).
