Square Thru (1,2,3,4) is defined here; for Left Square Thru (1,2,3,4) see the comments below.
In what follows, "Face partner" means to make a 90-degree turn in place to face one’s current partner. Complete as many of these actions as appropriate:
Square Thru 1: 2
Square Thru 2: 5
Square Thru 3: 7 or 8
Square Thru 4: 10
From Squared Set, 4 people full: 10 steps; three quarters, 8; one half, 6; one quarter, 4
From Box: 4 people full: 8 steps; three quarters, 6; one half, 4; one quarter, 2.
With the Pull By the hands are released as each dancer passes each other so as to avoid guiding one another to turn the wrong way.
As in Right and Left Grand, dancers should make their opposite hand available for their next Pull By (or the next call). On each Pull By, as dancers pass they should be facing Head or Side walls (unlike Right And Left Grand, which blends into a circle).
Facing dancers join right hands and pull by. Turn in one quarter (90°), join left hands and pull by. (A half Square Thru has been completed.) Turn in one quarter (90°) and join right hands with facing dancer and pull by. (A three quarter Square Thru has been completed.) Turn in one quarter (90°), join left hands and pull by, but do not turn. (A full Square Thru has been completed.)
Variations of Square Thru may be specified by fractions or by the number of hands, e.g. Square Thru 3/4 is the same as Square Thru three hands, etc.
