Each group of facing couples Circle Left
1/2 (180 degrees).
The left-side dancer in the new outside couple releases the left handhold and
slides sideways to the left to become the left end of a One-faced Line
(which faces the line formed by the other four dancers).
All other handholds are maintained. The other dancers continue circling,
gradually blending into the One-Faced Line by unwinding the circle.
The final dancer replaces the unwinding action with a forward and
left-turning twirl, walking under an arch made with the adjacent dancer,
similar in action to a California Twirl.
Ending formationFacing Lines
The circle portion is the same styling as in Circle Left.
Dancers lead the twirl under the arch by raising their joined hands into an arch.
Calling and/or Teaching Tip
Some callers identify who "breaks" (i.e., who lets go with the left hand to
become the left end of the final line). These helping words are optional;
if used, they refer to the outside left-side dancer after Circle Left 1/2.
