Plus Movements (3) No.92 - 100


. . 92. Flip the Diamond
People Involved 4 dancers
START diamond
END line
Movement The centers of the diamond do a Diamond Circulate to the next position in their diamond, while the points Run ("Flip" 180) into the nearest center position and join hands to become the centers of the forming wave or line. When "flipping" a facing diamond, the points always take the inside path, and the centers always take the outside path.


. . 93. Grand Swing Thru
People Involved 8 dancers / 6 dancers
START tidal wave / wave of 6 dancers
END tidal wave / wave of 6 dancers
Movement Those who can turn by the right one-half (180), then those who can turn by the left one-half (180). If "right" is not specified preceding the command to Grand Swing Thru, it is understood to be a right-handed Grand Swing Thru. If Grand Left Swing Thru is required, it must be specifically directed - "Grand Left Swing Thru", in which case, those who can turn by the left one-half (180), then those who can turn by the right one-half (180).


. . 94. Crossfire
People Involved 4 dancers
START 2-faced / 1-faced / inverted line / diamond
END box / t-bone box
Movement As the centers begin to Trade, the ends Cross Fold. Upon completing their Trade, the centers release hands and step straight forward forming an ocean wave or mini-wave with the dancers they are facing. If the Trade leaves the original centers facing no one, they step forward and remain facing out.


. . 95. All 8 Spin the Top
People Involved 8 dancers
START thar
END thar
Movement If started from a Thar Star, the handholds forming the center star are released as each center dancer and the adjacent outside dancer Arm Turn one-half (180). Those now in the middle Star three-quarters (walking forward), while the new outsides move forward one-quarter around the perimeter of the circle to join hands with the same person again in a Thar Star formation.
If started from a Right & Left Grand Circle, everyone turns by the right halfway (180) with the person they are facing, then completes the call as above (new centers Star left three-quarters, etc.)


. . 96. Cut the Diamond
People Involved 4 dancers
START diamond
END line
Movement The centers of the diamond do a Diamond Circulate to the next position in their diamond, while the points slide together and Trade. Ends in a line or wave.


. . 97. Chase Right
People Involved 4 dancers
START back to back couple
END right-hand mini wave box
Movement Each right-hand dancer does an exaggerated Zoom action, moving into the position previously occupied by the right-hand dancer behind him, to finish facing in the same direction as when he started the Zoom action. (The net result is the same as if the right-hand dancer had done a right face U Turn Back & Box Circulate twice). The left-hand dancer follows ("Chases") the right-hand dancer by doing a Box Circulate two positions. The call finishes in a Box Circulate formation.


. . 98. Dixie Grand
People Involved 8 dancers
START Dixie Grand Circle, Double Pass Thru, Quarter Tag, or any formation where at least two dancers can start.
END dancers facing in circle
Movement Those who can start the call by joining right hands with the facing dancer and pulling by. Each dancer moves ahead around the circle and gives a left hand to the next, pulling by, and a right hand to the next, pulling by. Regardless of the starting formation, as the movement progresses, the formation converts to a circle.


. . 99. 3/4 Tag the Line
People Involved 4 dancers
START line
END 3/4 tag
Movement Each dancer turns individually to face the center of the line and walks forward passing right shoulders with oncoming dancers. Lead dancers pass by two dancers and end facing out. Trailing dancers pass by one dancer and step to a right-hand Ocean Wave in the center of the set. Ends in a 3/4 Tag formation. If the call is done from any single line of four, it ends with a mini-wave between two out-facing dancers.


. . 100. Spin Chain and Exchange the Gears
People Involved 8 dancers
START parallel waves
END parallel waves
Movement Start as in a normal Spin Chain the Gears -- Ends and adjacent centers turn 12, new centers turn 3/4, while the ends U-Turn Back, and the very two centers of the wave Trade. All form two left-hand stars (but before turning them, the out-facing point should raise a hand, indicating "follow me" -- they will be the "leaders of the exchange") and turn the stars 3/4. The "leaders of the exchange" will now lead the star out to the right, around the outside of the other star, like an S pattern, then into a momentary column of four, single file through the sides position. The first three dancers in the momentary column Quarter right-face, as the fourth dancer does a Quarter left-face, and the original "leader of the exchange" runs right, forming two parallel right-hand ocean waves (at the sides of the square, if started from a Box 1-4).
