 Alter the Wave  -  C1
 CALLERLAB  -  February 2010


From a wave: All Swing, then the centers Cast Off 3/4 while the ends U-Turn Back. All Counter Rotate the diamond 1/2 (formerly called "turning the star 1/2"), and Flip the Diamond. Ends in a wave.
One can also "Counter Rotate the Diamond" by other amounts than 1/2. For example, Alter the Wave, but Counter Rotate the Diamond 3/4:
Teaching Hint: One can think of the Counter Rotate as two Diamond Circulates (except that the centers of the diamond remain centers throughout).

Alter The Wave

 Alter The Wave  -  C1
 Jay King  -  page 34


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).

Lee Kopman 1970
