Starting formation - any two dancer formation in which the directed dancer has a shoulder directly
adjacent to the other dancer. GENERAL RULE: Directed dancers step forward and move in a small semicircle
to end facing toward an adjacent dancer or position. The adjacent inactive dancer may be facing in
any direction and does not move. If not specified, centers fold toward ends and vice versa. (a) BOYS
FOLD, (b) GIRLS FOLD, (c) ENDS FOLD, (d) CENTERS FOLD: Directed active dancers fold toward the
inactive dancers using the general rule. (e) CROSS FOLD: Starting formation - line, two-faced line, or
wave. The directed (active) dancers who must either both be centers or both be ends, fold toward the
farthest inactive dancer by walking in a semi-circle to end facing toward that same dancer. When the
active dancers are both facing the same direction, they move forward in a semi-circle, pass each other and
fold toward the inactive dancer.
STYLING: Hand position depends on starting formation, i.e, hands up from a wave, couple handhold from
a line or circulate. Using appropriate hand position, the inactive dancer should exert slight pressure to
adjacent dancer and assist in initiating folding action. TIMING: Fold, 2 steps; cross fold, 4 steps.
