Ping Pong Circulate

 Ping Pong Circulate  -  Plus
 CALLERLAB  -  December 2007


Starting formation - Quarter Tag. TIMING - 6

The movement starts and ends in a Quarter Tag formation. Each dancer Circulates, or moves forward one position along the path shown in Figure 1. The movement may also be called when there is a left-hand wave in the center. In this case, the path circulated along is as shown in Figure 2.

It should be noted that the Circulate paths are independent of each other. Therefore, it is possible for only those on the outside path (dancers numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 in Figures 1 & 2) to Ping Pong Circulate or only those on the inside path (dancers numbered 5, 6, 7, & 8 in Figures 1 & 2) to Ping Pong Circulate.

STYLING: Styling is the same as previously described for the basics pass thru and partner trade. Dancers in center use basic ocean wave styling. Outside dancers join hands in couple handhold.

Ping Pong Circulate

 Ping Pong Circulate  -  Plus
 Jack Lasry  -  January 1978


The action starts from the 1/4 tag formation, most easily set up from a static set by having the heads or sides pass the ocean. This sets up the ocean wave thru the center and the outside couples behind the wave facing in. The Action is simply explained by telling the dancers in the wave to step thru..with the outside dancers all will pass thru...the new center dancers will step into an ocean wave while the new dancers facing out will partner trade. The action ends with a similar starting formation, with the original wave dancers as the outside couple and the original outside couple as the wave in the center.

The author see the action as a circulating rotation into the new position. I find that you can only confuse the dancer by associating the action to a circulate....The name is no problem for the dancers, if there is a problem at all it is what to do after the Ping Pong Circulate and keep within the Mainstream program.....Here are a few ideas.

  1. Centers extend to a wave.
  2. Centers recycle.
  3. Centers Swing Thru...Turn Thru.
  4. Centers spin the top
  5. Centers turn thru.
  6. Centers Fan the top to a square thru...
