| ||Circle to a Line -- [Basic]|
CALLERLAB - November 2009
Starting formation - facing couples. Couples circle left one half (180°). The lead dancer in the couple who
started on the inside (man's position) releases the left handhold, but retains the handhold of the dancer
on his right to become the left end dancer of the line. The released dancer moves forward under the raised
arm arch formed by that dancer and the adjacent dancer to become the right end dancer in the line.
STYLING: The circle portion is the same styling as in circle eight. As the man breaks with his left hand
to form a line, he should lead the line several steps before turning. After the end lady has released her
right hand, and while retaining the right hand of the man beside her, together they will raise their joined
hands and make an arch. Then as the line begins to straighten out, she will move forward under this arch,
turning left face gradually under her own left arm so that instead of backing up she is moving forward to
the end of the line. TIMING: 8 steps.
