 Wheel And Deal
 Jay King  -  page 23
 

Definition:

From a line of four: The right-hand couple wheels around with the left side person as a pivot. The left hand couple wheels behind the other couple with the right side person as a pivot. Finishes with one couple behind the other. BACKGROUND NOTE: In club dancing, Wheel and Deal pretty well replaced Shuffle the Deck as a means of converting lines to double pass thru or completed double pass thru formation. Shuffle the Deck is currently one of Challenge Dancing's Basic Calls.
From a two-faced line: With the inside dancers as pivots, couples wheel around to face one another. BACKGROUND NOTE: When the subject of doing a wheel and deal from a two-faced line first came up, there was a short-lived controversy about whether the couples should finish back to back if they were "right ends" and finish facing each other only if they were "left ends" in the two-faced line. Practical considerations finally dictated that couples ended up facing one another whether they wheeled to the right or left.

 Wind The Chain 1/4, 1/2, 3/4
 Jay King  -  page 57
 

Definition:

Shortened version of Windmill Chain or Flying Chain. Wind the Chain One Quarter means man star promenades with his partner 3/4 around, chains her out at the side and moves to the next girl. At this point, the girl chaining into the center does a Star Thru with the inside man. With a slight amount of fudging, the move finishes in eight chain thru formation. Wind the Chain One Half would have the actives star promenade 3/4, chain out at the side, pick up the next girl, take her across and chain her out and move to the next girl. Here again, do a Star Thru into eight chain thru formation. (Outside men courtesy turn the girls chaining out).
