 Ends/Centers Run; Boys/Girls Run


Designated dancers walk forward in a small arc into adjacent dancer's position (reversing facing direction) as adjacent dancer slides or side-steps into the runner's vacated position without turning. Those doing the run will always move around a contrasting person--Ends run around centers; centers run around ends; girls run around boys; boys run around girls. In lines or waves, the runners remain in their own half of that line or wave.

Vern Smith and John Ward 1963
