Definitions for Week 13

SINGLE CIRCLE TO A WAVE: Starting formation - facing dancers. Facing dancers join both hands with each other and circle left halfway. Without stopping, they drop hands with each other and individually veer left, blending into a right-hand mini-wave. If the caller directs ``single circle 3/4 to a wave,'' facing dancers join both hands with each other and circle left 3/4, then continue to execute the rest of the call as above.

DIXIE GRAND: Starting formation - various, e.g., double pass thru. Those who can, start the call by joining right hands with the facing dancer and pulling by. Each dancer moves ahead around the circle and gives a left hand to the next, pulling by, and a right hand to the next, pulling by. Regardless of the starting formation, as the movement progresses, the formation converts to a circle.

GRAND SWING THRU: Starting formation - tidal wave or ocean wave of six dancers. Those who can, turn by the right one-half (180°), then those who can, turn by the left one-half (180°).

PING PONG CIRCULATE: Starting formation - quarter tag. Extend twice, new outsides partner trade. If the wave in the center is left-handed, pass left shoulders on the partner trade. Ends become centers, and centers become ends to form a new quarter tag formation.
