 Half Tag The Line 

Definition:
 

From four people in line regardless of who faces out and who faces in: All face down the line and walk forward passing right shoulders until the lead dancers from one side of the line come even (shoulder to shoulder) with the trailing dancers from the other side of the line. All take the next call (In, Out, Right, Left). BACKGROUND NOTE: Tag the Line has a considerable history. The term "Tag" was first used in this sense by Holman Hudspeth with a movement he called "Tag the Centers."

John Steckman 1970

 Tag The Line 1/4; 1/2; 3/4 

Definition:
 

Tag the Line is by Will Orlich, Bradenton, Fla.; Tag the Line Half is by John Steckman, Ellwood City, Pa.; Tag the Line 3/4 is by Bob Dawson, Sarasota, Fla. I don't know who's associated with Tag the Line One Quarter. All "Tags" go back to Tag The Centers by Holman Hudspeth, Detroit, Mich.

From lines, waves or two-faced lines (including three and one lines): All face down the line. Tag the Line One Quarter--leads step forward until shoulder to shoulder in the center. Half Tag The Line--All walk forward, leads pass by one couple and stop when shoulder to shoulder with trailers from the other side (in a wave without joining hands unless so directed). Tag The Line Three Quarters--All walk forward, leads pass thru two couples and trailers stop when shoulder to shoulder in the center with the trailers from the other side (in a wave without joining hands unless so directed).

Willard Orlich and John Steckman and Bob Dawson
