Mainstream (3) No.65 - 66


. . 65. Spin Chain Thru
People Involved 8 dancers
START parallel wave
END parallel wave
Movement Each end and the adjacent center dancer turn one half (180). The new centers of each ocean wave turn three quarters (270) to make a new ocean wave across the set. Thetwo centers of this wave turn one half (180) to reform the wave across the set. The two outside pairs of dancers of the center wave now turn three quarters (270) to join the waiting ends and form parallel ocean waves.


. . 66. Tag the Line
People Involved 4 dancers / 8 dancers
START any type of line
END completed DPT (singlefile) / lines facing in / lines facing out / 2-faced lines
Movement Each dancer turns to face the center of the line. Taking a short side step to the left, each dancer walks forward passing right shoulders with oncoming dancers until he has walked past all of the dancers from the other half of the line. The call may be followed by any one of the directions In, Out, Right or Left. When this happens, dancers turn in place one quarter (90) in the direction indicated.


. . 67. Half Tag
People Involved 4 dancers
START any type of line
END right hand box
Movement Like tag the line, except the dancers stop walking forward when the original center from each side of the line meets the original end from the other side. If started from a four person line, the ending is a right hand box circulate formation; from longer lines the ending is a right hand column formation.


. . 68. Scoot Back
People Involved 4 dancers
START mini wave box / 1/4 tag
END mini wave box / 3/4 tag
Movement From Box: dancers facing in step straight forward to join adjacent forearms, turn half (180) and step forward to end in the position vacated by the dancer who was facing out. Meanwhile, each dancer facing out runs into the position vacated by the dancer who is doing the forearm turn. When done from right hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the right and the dancers facing out run right. When done from left hand boxes, the dancers facing in turn by the left and the dancers facing out run left. Finishes in a box circulate formation.
From quarter tag: dancers step ahead, join forearms (right if center wave was right handed or left if center wave was left handed), turn half (180) and step straight forward. Those returning to the center step to a wave(using same hands as original wave); the others finish as a couple facing out. Ending formation is a 3/4 tag.


. . 69. Fan the Top
People Involved 4 dancers
START wave / facing couple
END wave
Movement The centers of the line or wave turn three quarters (270) while the outsided ancers move forward in a quarter circle. The ending formation is at right angles to the starting formation. Centers remain centers and ends remainends.


. . 70. Hinge Family
People Involved 2 dancers / 4 dancers(in couples hinge)
START mini wave / couple / 2-faced line / 1-faced line
END mini wave / 2-faced line
Movement A hinge is a half of a trade. Any two adjacent couples or dancers who can trade can also hinge.
(a) COUPLES HINGE: Starting formation-line or two-faced line. Working as a unit, each couple does half of a couples trade to end in a two-faced line at right angles to the original line.
(b) SINGLE HINGE: Starting formation -mini wave. Dancers do half of a trade with each other to end in a mini wave at right angles to the original mini wave.
