CHALLENGE 1 MOVEMENTS

Rotate
From a static square, or a static square with some couples facing out (e.g., after Heads Pass Thru): Working As Couples, the designated outside dancers turn 1/4 in place to face promenade direction and Counter Rotate the designated fraction around the outside of the square, while the other dancers step forward into the middle. This is a restricted definition for C-1, using only the permitted formation of a static square.

Reverse Rotate. Working As Couples, the designated outside dancers turn 1/4 in place to face reverse promenade direction and Counter Rotate the designated fraction (or 1/4, if none is specified) around the outside of the square, while the other dancers step forward into the middle.

Single Rotate
Working individually, the designated outside dancers turn 1/4 in place to face promenade direction and Counter Rotate the designated fraction (or 1/4, if none is specified) around the outside of the square, while the other dancers step forward into the middle.

Reverse Single Rotate. Working individually, the designated outside dancers turn 1/4 in place to face reverse promenade direction and Counter Rotate the designated fraction (or 1/4, if none is specified) around the outside of the square, while the other dancers step forward into the middle.

Scatter Scoot
From parallel waves: Leads All Eight Circulate while the others Scoot Back.

Scatter Scoot Chain Thru. From waves only: The leads All Eight Circulate while the trailers Scoot Chain Thru.

Scoot and Little/(Anything) and Little

Little. From one-quarter tag or three-quarter tag: Outsides Quarter Right, or as directed. They then Counter Rotate 1/4 while the centers Step and Fold. Ends in parallel waves or lines. The quartering direction for the outsides may be specified, as in "Left Little" or "Right Little" [outsides go left or right, respectively.]
From twin diamonds: Outsides Counter Rotate 1/4 while the centers Step and Fold. Ends in parallel general lines.

Little, outsides out.

Scoot and Little. From quarter tag: Scoot Back, then Little or Left Little, according to the hand with which the Scoot Back was done, or outsides go as directed, as in "Scoot and Little, Out on the outside".

Left Scoot and Little: From left-hand quarter tag only: [This usage is to be avoided, except when helping the dancers--since this call is no different from Scoot and Little from this formation.] Scoot Back, then Left Little. The outsides always go to the left.

(Anything) and Little. All do the "any" call, then do a Little.

Scoot and Plenty/(Anything) and Plenty

Plenty. From one-quarter tag, three-quarter tag, or twin diamonds: Everyone does a Little. Without stopping, all do 2 Box Circulates (formerly called "Turn the Star 1/2"). The new ends then Counter Rotate 1/4 and Roll, while the new centers 1/2 Zoom to form a wave. Ends in quarter tag. From 3/4 tag, the quartering direction for the outsides may be specified, as in "Left Plenty" or "Right Plenty" [outsides go left or right, respectively.]
Note: The caller can vary the number of Box Circulates (e.g., "Plenty, do 3 Box Circulates").

Scoot and Plenty. From quarter tag: Scoot Back, then Right Plenty or Left Plenty, depending on the hand with which the Scoot Back was done; the outsides can also take a direction, as in "Scoot and Plenty, Outsides Out."

Left Scoot and Plenty: From left-hand quarter tag only: [This usage is to be avoided, except when helping the dancers--since this call is no different from Scoot and Plenty from this formation.] Scoot Back, then Left Plenty. The outsides always go to the left.

(Anything) and Plenty. All do the "any" call, then do a Plenty.

Scoot and Ramble/(Anything) and Ramble

Ramble. From one-quarter tag or three-quarter tag: The outsides separate and Slide Thru with each other, while the centers Single Wheel and Slide Thru.

Scoot and Ramble. From quarter tag: Scoot Back, then Ramble.

(Anything) and Ramble. All do the "any" call, then do a Ramble.

Shakedown

From couples back to back: As one continuous move, the beaus Run and Roll while the belles Quarter Out and Box Circulate.

Left Shakedown. From couples back to back: As one continuous move, the belles Run and Roll while the beaus Quarter Out and Box Circulate.

Siamese Concept
From a formation composed of 2 tandems and 2 couples: Same as "In Tandem or As Couples": Those who are in the tandems work in tandem, and those in the couples work as couples, and everyone does the 2- or 4-dancer call specified.

Split Square Thru variations:

From any appropriate formation: Those facing do a right pull by, then Quarter In. All do the remaining parts of the call.

Split Square Chain the Top. From a T-Bone: Those facing right Pull By and Quarter In, then all Left Spin the Top and Left Turn Thru to end as couples back to back.

Split Dixie Style to a Wave. From a T-bone: Those facing Right Pull By and Quarter In, then all Left Touch 1/4.

Split Dixie Diamond. From 2 appropriate T-bones: Those facing Right Pull By and Quarter In, then all Left Touch 1/4 to form parallel waves. Now the new centers Hinge, while the ends U-Turn Back. Ends in diamonds.

Square Chain the Top
From facing couples: Right Pull By, Quarter In, Left Spin The Top, and Left Turn Thru to end as couples back to back.

Square the Bases
From facing lines: The centers Square Thru 3 while the ends Pass Thru, Ends Bend and start a Split Square Thru 2 (finishing with the centers). Now, all Trade By.

Squeeze
From any appropriate 2-dancer formation: If side by side, the designated dancers Trade and slide apart. If far apart, they slide together and Trade. In case of conflict, the centers move before the ends (e.g., from a facing diamond). For example, from columns, "Ends Squeeze" gives a butterfly:

Squeeze the Hourglass/Galaxy. From an hourglass or a galaxy: The center six Squeeze. Squeezing an hourglass results in a galaxy and vice versa:

Step and Flip
From lines or waves: The centers step forward as the ends run.
Note: Step and Flip is best called from lines facing out or from inverted lines with the centers facing out. If called from two-faced lines or waves, the ending formation is a "Z", used primarily at C-2 and beyond.

Step and Fold
From an inverted line, a wave, or a diamond only: The centers step forward and the ends Fold to end in a box circulate formation, tandem couples, or t-bone.


Stretch Concept
From all appropriate formations: [At C-1, this can be done from parallel general lines only] The modifier "Stretch" is used as a prefix, applied to two- or four-person calls only. Do the 2- or 4-person call as usual, but the people who end in the center move to the center spots farthest from the dancers they had been working with (by moving along the long axis of the formation). For example, Stretch Recycle or Stretch Shake Down or Stretch Turn and Deal or Stretch Touch 1/4 or Stretch Touch
If the centers cannot move along the long axis of the formation to get away from the ends they'd been working with, then the call is improper. For example, Stretch Swing Thru is not proper from here: because after the Swing Thru, the centers would have to move along the short axis of the formation to get away from the ends. Similarly, one may not call Centers Stretch Touch ¼ from here because the centers weren't working with the ends on the Touch 1/4. Note: The examples above are here only to clarify the definition. They don't necessarily represent good usage--particularly Stretch Turn and Deal from left-hand two-faced lines. Teaching Hint: This call is usually danced with those coming to the center actually going to the far center spots, rather than first completing the move on their own side.

Swing and Circle 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full
From quarter tag, three-quarter tag, diamonds (but not facing diamonds), or a wave between parallel mini-waves: The dancers in the wave Swing. Now the very center dancers Trade while the outer six move as shown in the diagrams below. Then the outside dancers turn, if need be, to end in a quarter tag. This ends Swing and Circle 1/4.
Repeat the entire above action, if necessary:
--once more, for Swing and Circle 1/2
--twice more, for Swing and Circle 3/4
--three more times, for a full Swing and circle
e.g., Swing and Circle 1/4:

Swing the Fractions
From parallel waves, or other appropriate: Those who can Turn 1/4 by the Right, those who can Turn 1/2 by the Left, those who can Turn 3/4 by the Right, those who can Turn 1/2 by the Left, and those who can Turn 1/4 by the Right.
This is a 5-part call, with each arm turn being one part. "Swing the Fractions 4/5" is common.

Left Swing the Fractions. Begin with an Arm Turn 1/4 by the Left, and alternate right and left Arm Turns through the rest of the call.
