 Jay King  -  page 238


Version #1

Same as Slide Thru. (author unknown)

Version #2

From a wave: Ends do a "Lines Divide" while the centers Hing and step forward to stand to right of end dancer (if from a right hand wave) or to left of end dancer (if from a left hand wave). Finishes with couples back to back. (Gordie Loomer 1968)

Version #3

From two right hand parallel waves: Ends and adjacent dancers (neighbors) face each other and Pass Thru. Centers now Pass Thru (right shoulders) and move up to stand to the left of the outside dancers. Finishes in lines facing out. (Dick Bayer 1969)

Cross Quarter Thru

From facing pairs: Couples do a Crosstrail Thru and without stopping do a Quarter In and Pass Thru. Finishes with couples back to back. (Bill Harrison 1974)

COMMENT: Still another meaning for Quarter Thru. This one can be called directionally.

GENERAL COMMENT: Still another movement called Quarter Thru (and Three Quarter Thru) by Holman Hudspeth has been adopted as one of the Basic Calls of Challenge Dancing. See Hinge Thru below.
