From Eight Chain Thru or other applicable columns (e.g., 1/4 Box).
Those designated Walk, others Dodge;
Ends in Mini-Wave Columns.
Comments and Examples:
Original definition says: those designated Walk, others Dodge,
then first two Circulate Twice as last two Circulate, Trade and Circulate.
The first part (Those designated Walk, others Dodge) is not necessarily
done in a box of 4. For instance, from a squared set after Heads Touch 1/4,
the call can be Beaus Advance To A Column (6 walk, 2 dodge).
From eight chain thru formation with regular couples: On the call "Boys Advance the Column," Boys Walk and girls Dodge; lead two in each column Circulate two positions in single file. Meanwhile the trailing two step forward into box formation and Trade, then step straight ahead to become the lead pairs in each column. Finishes in column formation.
From a one-quarter tag formation: Those in the wave do a Recycle, but promenade single file to end behind the inactive or outside couples. At the same time, the outside couples do the Recycle action described above for facing couples. Finishes in one quarter tag formation. NOTE: It has been suggested that the Recycle action from the wave that requires dancers to promenade behind the outside couples be called Long Recycle.
From a wave: All arm swing half. Centers arm swing 3/4 while ends U-turn back (continuing to turn in the direction of the original arm swing). Make a four-hand star with inside hands and turn the star halfway. Those who did the 3/4 arm swing keep starring hands joined with dancer in front and "push" that lead dancer into the center of a new wave as they themselves become ends of the new wave. Finishes in a wave oriented the same as the original wave (Right hand waves become left hand waves and vice versa).
From column formation or waves: Execute the first movement (Trade, Cast off 3/4 etc.) then the outside two of the column spread apart. Others walk straight ahead single file with lead person rolling to farthest center spot to face back in while the trailers walk straight ahead into the center spot without turning back. Ends (usually) in two-faced lines.
From lines facing out: Start a Round Off, but the lead dancers only do the complete movement plus a Pass Thru. Trailing dancers meet one another just before doing the Clover In and do a Pass Thru instead. Finishes in one of the many forms of T-Bone formation.
From lines facing out: Bend the line, ends step forward and half right arm turn as the centers step into a wave and Swing Thru. Each half of the (temporary) Tidal Wave does a Fan the Top. Finishes in parallel waves.
From a promenade or from parallel two-faced lines: From a promenade, the call is "Heads (Sides) Cast a Shadow" and the Head girls will roll back to the girl behind to start a Cast Off. From parallel two-faced lines the call is simply Cast A Shadow and the outside person in the pair facing out rolls back to the outside person in the couple behind to start the Cast Off. The initial Cast Off by the dancer rolling back is a 3/4 Arm Turn. These dancers immediately slide apart. The person adjacent to the dancer who rolled back will follow (shadow) the "roller" about a quarter of the way but in a larger loop. When the Cast Off is finished and the arm turners spread apart, this looping dancer steps between them to become one center of a new wave and standing beside the original adjacent dancer. The other two dancers (facing in) step forward and turn one quarter by adjacent arms, then step straight ahead to take the vacant center position in the new parallel waves. Finishes with parallel waves.
From a one quarter tag formation: In the wave do a Step Thru then Pass Thru the outside two to do a Partner Hinge and then arm turn half. New centers make a right hand star and turn it one quarter. Those who can left arm turn 3/4 and the others move up to the nearest end of parallel waves. Finishes in parallel waves.
NOTE: The name "Chain Reaction" was sometimes given to the old figure called Illegitimate Chain (see section on Special Movements).
From lines facing out: Right-hand couples Cast Off 1/4 and Roll and Extend to become ends as the belle of the other couple does a Shove Off (same as centers Box Circulate in this case) while the beau (in the left-hand couple) slides one position to the right. Ends in 2-faced lines.
From two facing pairs: Circle left one quarter; step forward into a right-handed wave, then do a Single Hinge. Finishes in box formation.
Circle By 1/2 By 1/2: Circle half, step into a wave, then arm turn half.
Circle By 3/4 By 1/4: Circle 3/4, step into a wave, then single hinge.
From columns: All circulate once, then the lead dancer in each column does a U-turn back. Center four box circulate once and the lead dancer (of these center four) does a U-turn back. Finishes in double pass thru formation.
From a squared set: Four ladies chain straight across, then chain back 3/4 around while the four men promenade one quarter to courtesy turn a new girl. Four ladies chain straight across, men promenade one quarter to courtesy turn. Four ladies chain 3/4, men promenade one quarter and courtesy turn. Four ladies chain straight across and men promenade one quarter to turn partners at home.
From columns: All circulate once and a half. Center six arm swing half (Trade). Center two of the six walk forward and outward to hook on the ends and the lonesome two circulate half to also become ends. Finishes in parallel two-faced lines.
From parallel waves: Ends facing out face down the line and circulate once. Ends facing in circulate once and face in toward the center of the set. Centers facing in circulate once and face in toward the center of the set. Centers facing out face down the line and circulate once. Finishes in parallel waves perpendicular to starting waves. Ends remain ends and centers remain centers. Right hand waves remain right hand waves and left hand waves remain left hand waves.
From a thar or wrong way thar: Like a Slip the Clutch with those in the center moving up one position and crossing to the outside while those on the outside move up one position and cross to the inside. From parallel waves: Dancers cross circulate half to form a thar or wrong way thar.
From eight chain thru formation: Those facing the outside couple do a complete right and left roll (right and left thru and then each individually turn a quarter more in the direction of motion). After the right hand pull by, those in the center star left diagonally to become the centers of parallel right hand waves.
From lines facing out: Centers Crossrun then move ahead to Pass In with the one they meet from the other line. Others, meanwhile, Quarter In, Pass Thru and then half sashay (i.e., Crosstrail Thru). Finishes in eight chain thru formation.
From columns: Lead dancer in each column Trail Off as other six Extend and Trade; leader in each column of three Trail Off as the original leaders Circulate and the other four Extend and Trade, New name for Cross Double Your Pleasure and Double Your Fun.
From parallel lines and waves: Centers Box Counter Rotate 1/4 then Flip away from center to become ends of final formation; ends 1/2 Zoom, Single Hinge, then (Phantom) Column Circulate two places to become centers of the final formation.
From columns: #1 and #4 dancers in the same column working with each other do a 1/2 Zoom then Hinge; center four (2 & 3) Walk & Dodge Right (Box Counter Rotate) then Trade and Spread as original 1 & 4 do two (phantom) Column Circulates to become centers of parallel waves.
From Parallel lines, waves, columns: Centers Box Counter Rotate, Trade and Spread; ends/outsides 1/2 Zoom, then Hinge, then (Phantom) Column Circulate 2 places. This is an expansion of the original which was defined as starting from columns only. (Disperse the Line used before: B. 2277.)
From columns: Lead dancers in each column Peel Off and Circulate to the other side; other six do a Grand Trail Off, i.e. 1/2 Circulate and Trade; lead dancer in the column of six Peel Off, other four Grand Trail Off; i.e. Extend and Trade. right-hand columns become parallel left-hand waves and vice versa.
From parallel waves or two-faced lines: Ends split circulate two positions. At the same time, the center facing out does a Crossrun and then a Circulate while the center facing in does a Circulate and then a Crossrun. Waves finish as two faced lines and vice versa.
From twin diamond formation: Points Quarter Right or Left as per call and centers take one step forward.
NOTE: This call can be used from one quarter or three quarter tag formation to set up T-Bone lines. The outside couples take the Right or Left call and those in the center wave step forward.
From parallel waves or two faced lines: Centers Trade and Roll. Ends facing in Circulate and Quarter In (Face Down the Line). Ends facing out Cloverleaf. Finishes in double pass thru formation.
COMMENT: Same move with different names.
From parallel waves, parallel two faced lines or Three and One lines: Ends facing out Cloverleaf (Zoom 3/4) as the other six Circulate and then face in. Finishes in double pass thru formation. (Ends finish as outside couples and centers finish as center couples.)
From parallel waves: All do a single hinge, then split circulate and Scoot Back. Finishes in parallel waves. NOTE: The author's explanation originally was: Ends trade and roll to end facing the center of new parallel waves. Centers run and then roll and finally turn thru with the other center straight across to walk straight ahead to face out in the new waves. From left-hand waves, the center's final move will be a left-turn thru.
From parallel waves: Ends (Phantom) Walk & Dodge, centers (Phantom) Couple Up (do not cross center line). Zero waves give #1 2-faced lines.
From columns: Ends Walk & Dodge, centers (staying on their side) Couple Up. Ends in magic columns.
From columns, waves, lines--call is directed to Boys, Girls, Ends, Centers (e.g., "Boys Kick Off"): Those designated will Run and then Roll as the inactives turn to face the adjacent vacated spot and step forward into it (turn and step for the inactives). From any two adjacent dancers facing the same way or opposite ways, finishes with one dancer behind the other at right angles to original facing direction.
From completed double pass thru formation: The lead pair roll right to a wave (with the trailers) and all Single Hinge. (Latch On 1/2 or 3/4 means lead dancers roll right to a wave then arm turn a half or 3/4 depending on the call.) All versions finish in parallel waves.
From a squared set: Actives are facing out, inactives facing in. For example, Heads Pass Thru and Lift Off. Those facing out (the heads) Cast Right one quarter. Side ladies cross to the left and "bump" head ladies (from behind) as those head ladies roll to the right and become the partners of the side men (to their left) who cross the set, veering left as the head men and a new girl promenade (wrong way) to the ends of parallel two faced lines. Sides face out, heads face in--heads are near home position.
From a 1/4 or 3/4 tag: Outsides Partner Hinge then Trade; centers 3/4 Linear Cycle (i.e. leaders Quarter Right but trailers stop in a wave); outside four 1/2 Circulate (move up) as others (on each side) Cast 3/4 to end as centers of parallel waves.
From parallel waves/lines: All Hinge and Split Circulate (2/3 Recycle); new centers 1/2 Invert (Split Circulate 2 spots) as outsides Split Counter Rotate and roll (finish a Linear Cycle) With the Flow (i.e. leader Walks, trailer Dodges). (The portion after the initial 2/3 Recycle is exactly a Double Split Circulate or Tandem Swing for all dancers.) Finally new Centers Trade.
Cross Linear Flow: All Hinge and Split Circulate; Centers Tandem Cross Run as ends Tandem Run; new centers Trade.
Criss Cross Linear Flow: All Hinge and Split Circulate; all Tandem Mix; new centers Trade.
From a wave: Centers single hinge while the ends move up a quarter to become ends of a new wave. Finishes in a wave. NOTE: Lock It can be done from a two-faced line, but the preferable call would be Couples Hinge. Fan the Top is like a Lock It with a 3/4 arm turn in the center instead of the one-quarter turn.
From columns: Lead dancer in each column Peel Off and Extend slightly, other six Extend and Trade; the very center two Spread and the peelers step in as the outsides facing out Turn Back. Ends in a 1/4 tag.
From parallel waves, lines or two faced lines: Everyone does a "Mix" (Centers Crossrun, new centers Trade) then ends Circulate and centers Trade (the centers are doing a full turn around here--i.e., two Trade in a row).
From parallel waves: Ends circulate once and a half. Centers circulate once and arm turn 3/4. In the six-hand wave, ends and adjacent dancers arm turn half as the center four star half. Inside four in the six-hand wave now arm turn 3/4 as the others circulate half to the ends of new parallel waves. Finishes in parallel waves.
From eight chain thru formation: Pass thru. Those facing out do a right-face U-turn back as those facing in Turn Thru. All pass thru again as those facing out do a right face turn back while the centers pass thru. Finishes in parallel waves.
From parallel waves or eight chain thru formation: All Pass Thru (Step Thru). Centers Pass Thru. Outsides Cross Cast Back to hook on the end. All arm turn half and new centers Trade. Finishes in facing lines.
From two columns of two side by side (facing the same way or in opposite directions): Lead dancers execute a Peel Off and the trailing dancers do a Trail Off. Leads become ends and trailers become centers of the ending line or wave.
(See the section on Controversial Movements for another movement called "Percolate" which was not generally adopted.) From parallel waves: All Circulate once and a half. Those facing out in the original waves meet and Turn Thru to become ends of newly forming lines. Those facing in in the original waves (now in a kind of Ocean Wave across the center of the set) do a Single Hinge. Those now facing give a left and pull by. Finishes in lines facing out.
From parallel waves: All eight Circulate. Those facing out now step forward, Quarter Right and Circulate two positions. Those facing in will step into a wave, Single Hinge, Box Circulate once and then Trade with adjacent dancer. Finishes in parallel two faced lines.
From facing lines: Ends Circulate once and a half then Single Hinge. The one now facing out folds behind the other and do the second part of a Half Tag the Line and face right (Half Pass Right). Center four (meanwhile) step into a wave, do a Single Hinge where the ones facing out Fold and these files of two do a double pass thru where the lead dancers Peel left and the trailing dancers Peel right. Finishes in double pass thru formation.
Includes all of the moves described in Scoot and Plenty after the completion of the Scoot Back. In other words, Plenty is done from a three-quarter tag formation. If the center wave is a left hand one at the start, then all moves are left handed ones (and the outsides do a quarter left and promenade, etc.).
From double pass thru formation: Center dancers do a 3/4 Zoom to face each other behind the former trailers (now the new centers), and do a right arm turn 3/4. The new centers Fan the Top, then Single Hinge. Finishes in a column.
