Plus Movements (2) No.82 - 91


. . 82. Track 2
People Involved 8 dancers
START completed double pass thru
END parallel waves
Movement The dancers work in "tandem", that is, the trailing dancers follow the lead dancers. Those in the right "track" move single file to the left, counter-clockwise, staying to the inside of the dancers on the left "track", who move single file, clockwise, to the right on the outside. The movement continues as in a Double Pass Thru, until the dancers have reached parallel right-hand ocean waves.

. . 83. (Anything) & Roll
People Involved 1 dancer
START various
END various
Movement The term "... & Roll" may be added to any call which, by definition, causes one or more dancers to have turning body flow to the right or left as they complete their portion of the call. It is an instruction to those dancer(s) to turn individually, in place, one quarter (90 degrees) more in the direction of body flow determined by the preceding command.
Note that if "... and Roll" is added to a call, which by definition, has some dancers walking in a straight line at the completion of their portion of the call, those dancers will do nothing for the "... and Roll".


. . 84. Follow Your Neighbor
People Involved 4 dancers
START mini wave box
END wave
Movement Dancers facing in release hands with the person next to them (their "neighbor") and step straight forward, join adjacent forearms with the one they meet, and turn three-quarters (270) to become centers of a new wave. At the same time, the dancers facing out follow their "neighbors" by moving forward in a three-quarter looping turn (270), turning towards their "neighbor" to finish adjacent to their "neighbor" as the ends of the new ocean wave.
When done from right-hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the right hand and the dancers facing out loop around right-face, to finish in a left-hand ocean wave. When done from left-hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the left-hand and the dancers facing out loop around left-face, to finish in a right-hand ocean wave.


. . 85. Explode the Wave
People Involved 4 dancers
START wave
END back to back couples
Movement Everyone releases handholds, steps forward and turns a quarter in (90) to face the adjacent dancer, and right hand pull by that person, to end as couples back-to-back.


. . 86. Explode and (Anything)
People Involved 4 dancers / 8 dancers
START wave
END various
Movement Everyone releases handholds, steps forward and turns a quarter in (90) to face the adjacent dancer, and does the (Anything) call (e.g., Right & Left Thru, Star Thru, etc.).


. . 87. Relay the Deucey
People Involved 8 dancers
START parallel waves
END parallel waves
Movement *All Circulates in this definition refer to the Original Circulate path established by the ends of the original ocean waves. No dancer ever stops moving during this call; the pauses written into the definition (i.e., the action described as "half-circulate") are there for clarity of description and for teaching purposes only.

Each end and the adjacent center dancer turn one-half (180). The new centers of each ocean wave turn three-quarters (270), while the others half-circulate, forming a six-person wave and two lonesome dancers. The wave of six, working as 3 pairs, turns 12, while the others half-circulate. In the wave, the center 4 turn 12, while the other four dancers half-circulate. The wave of 6, again working as 3 pairs, turns 12, while the others half-circulate. Finally, the center 4 of the wave turn 3/4 (becoming the centers of the new waves), while the outside 4 half-circulate to become the ends of the final waves.


. . 88. Peel the Top
People Involved 4 dancers
START box / Z
END 2-faced line
Movement The lead dancers Peel Off as the trailing dancers step straight forward and take adjacent hands; everyone then does a Fan the Top.


. . 89. Diamond Circulate
People Involved 4 dancers
START diamond
END diamond
Movement Each dancer moves forward to the next position in his diamond, changing his original facing direction one-quarter (90) toward the center of the diamond. Points become centers, and vice versa. If the call is directed to facing diamonds, all must pass right shoulders.


. . 90. Single Circle to an Ocean Wave
People Involved Ql
START facing dancers
END right-hand mini wave
Movement Facing dancers join both hands with each other and Circle Left halfway. Without stopping, they drop hands with each other and individually Veer Left, blending into a right-hand mini-wave. If the caller directs "Single Circle 3/4 to a Wave", facing dancers join both hands with each other and Circle Left 3/4, then continue to execute the rest of the call as above.


. . 91. Trade the Wave
People Involved 4 dancers
START wave
END wave
Movement Dancers facing the same direction in the wave Trade with each other. Right-hand waves become left-hand waves and vice versa. Ends of the wave become centers and vice versa.
