Spin Chain Thru

Starting formation - parallel waves.

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. The two 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. The Facing Couples Rule applies to this call.

STYLING: Hands up as in swing thru. It is important that the waiting ends remain in static position with hands ready to assume appropriate position for the next call.

Timing: 16 steps

Calling Tip A good flowing combination is to have the Ends Circulate Twice while the centers are working.
Teaching Tip Teach the Spin Concept action like in Spin The Top, i.e.: End and adjacent center turn one half (180 degrees) and new centers turn or cast three quarters (270 degrees).
