Tag the Line (In/Out/Left/Right)
A line with an even number of dancers.
Each dancer turns to face the center of each line. Dancers walk forward passing
right shoulders with oncoming dancers until they have 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.
When starting from a line of four dancers, ending formation is Completed Double Pass Thru.
Arms in natural dance position, hands ready to assume appropriate position for
the next call. A flowing type of movement can be achieved by taking a slight
step forward before turning toward the center of the line, thus avoiding the
abrupt military-type pivot.
Make sure you face the center of the entire line before you start moving forward.
