CHALLENGE 1 MOVEMENTS

Switch to an Interlocked Diamond
From parallel waves/lines: Centers Run, while the ends do their part of Interlocked Diamond Circulate.

T-Bone Formation
Definition: A T-Bone formation is one where some people are in lines or waves and some are in columns, e.g.,
To do a call "T-Bone", do your part of the call, regardless of how the other people are facing.
The caller does not actually say the words "T-Bone". Dancers are expected to recognize the formation and do the call accordingly.

Tagging Calls Back to a Wave:
Part 1: Do the "any Tagging Call" to the 1/2 Tag position.
Part 2: Scoot Back.

Flip Back. From a wave: Flip The Line 1/2, then Scoot Back. Ends in a box circulate formation. This call cannot be fractionalized.

Tag Back to a Wave. From a line or wave: 1/2 Tag and Scoot Back. Ends in box circulate formation. This call cannot be fractionalized.

Vertical Tag Back to a Wave. From box circulate, facing couples, etc.: Vertical 1/2 Tag, then Scoot Back. Ends in box circulate formation. This call cannot be fractionalized.

Tally Ho
From parallel waves or lines, trade-by, and 2x4 T-Bones: All 1/2 Circulate. The centers Hinge and 1/2 Box Circulate, while the outsides Trade. Those who meet Cast 3/4 while the other four Hourglass Circulate, to form parallel waves or lines, or a parallelogram.

Tandem Concept
Similar to the "As Couples" concept, but the two dancers that work as a unit are a tandem. Nobody ever comes between the dancers in a tandem. For example, Tandem Swing Thru or Tandem Quarter Thru

Three by Two Acey Deucey
From anywhere there are two groups of three that can Triangle Circulate, and a center two that can Trade (e.g., twin diamonds, or an hourglass): The very center two dancers Trade while the two triangles Circulate.

Triangle Formation
A triangle consists of an apex and either a (mini) wave-base or a tandem-base. Triangles are found as parts of a galaxy, hourglass, twin diamonds, and various other formations.

Triangle Circulate
From a triangle: Each dancer moves forward one position along one of the circulate paths
Teaching Hint: Every dancer has one shoulder toward the inside of the triangle. After Triangle Circulate, that same shoulder is still toward the center.

Inpoint/Inside/Outpoint/Outside Triangles. Twin diamonds consist of a series of triangles. These have either one of the points or one of the centers as the apex.

Inpoint Triangle: The point facing in is the apex and the centers of the diamond are the base.

Inside Triangle: The near center of the wave is the apex and the points of the diamond are the base.

Outpoint Triangle: The point facing out is the apex and the centers of the diamond are the base.

Outside Triangle: The end of the wave is the apex and the points of the diamond are the base.

Triple Box Concept
This concept establishes 3 boxes of 4 dancers each. Since there are 12 spots and only 8 dancers, 4 of the spots are vacant, but occupied by phantom dancers. Calls are executed by staying in your own box of 4.

Triple Cross
From columns: The 6 dancers who can will pull by on the diagonal, using outside hands.

Twist the Line
From a line, centers facing the same way, and sexes arranged appropriately: The centers step forward and Partner Trade while the ends face, move in, and Star Thru. This is a sex dependent call (because of the Star Thru).

Twist and (Anything). From a line, centers facing the same way: The centers step forward and Partner Trade while the ends face, move in, and do the Anything call--which will involve only the original ends unless otherwise specified For example, "Twist and Square Thru 2" Twist and Split Square Thru 2 Twist and Pass Out Twist and Nothing

Vertical Tag 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full
From box circulate, facing couples, etc.:
--Dancers in a trailing couple have the belle step in front of the beau, forming a tandem
--Dancers in a leading couple Single Wheel
--Dancers in a mini-wave have the leads Fold
Then all finish a Tag The Line (i.e., walk forward for as many tag positions as indicated).

(Anything) to a Wave
From wherever is appropriate for the "Anything" call: The "Anything" call must have as its final action, the dancers stepping from a wave into couples back to back. Do all of the "Anything" call, except for that final step forward--i.e., hold onto the final wave, ending there. For example, in Square Chain Thru to a Wave, the dancers would do all of the call except for stepping forward on the final Turn Thru

(Anything) and Weave
From box circulate: The leads do 1/2 a Box Circulate while the trailers Cross Extend and Hinge. From single eight chain thru: All Pass Thru, and the ends Quarter Right while the centers Left Touch 1/4 (this is like Touch and Weave).

Wheel and (Anything)
From any formation with exactly two couples as outsides and facing out: The outside couples As Couples Promenade 1/4 and As Couples Face In, while the other dancers do the "anything" call.

Reverse Wheel and (Anything). From any formation with exactly two couples as outsides and facing out: The outside couples As Couples Wrong-Way Promenade 1/4 and As Couples Face In, while the other dancers do the "anything" call. For example, Reverse Wheel and Touch 1/4.

Wheel Fan Thru
From facing couples: Start a Wheel Thru, but as the beaus meet, they Trade (by the right) and then all finish the Wheel Thru.

Left Wheel Fan Thru. From facing couples: Start a Left Wheel Thru, but as the belles meet, they Trade (by the left) and then all finish the Left Wheel Thru.

(Anything) the Windmill
From any appropriate formation: The centers (or everyone, if the call is an 8-person call) do the "Anything" call. Then the centers Cast Off 3/4 while the ends face as directed and Circulate twice (or as directed).

Zing
From any formation with leaders and trailers, and nobody on a center-line: Each leader does 3/4 of a Zoom (ending on the spot of the dancer behind him, but not facing his original direction). Meanwhile, the trailers Circulate and Quarter In.
