Eight Chain 1, 3, 5, etc. ends in Trade By

Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 1.20.34 PM

Eight Chain 2, 4, 6, etc. ends in Eight Chain Thru

TimingEight Chain Thru: 20

Eight Chain 1, 2, 3, etc.: each odd-numbered part: 2; each even-numbered part: 3

StylingSame as Right And Left Thru. Dancers doing the Left Pull By in the center move slowly so their action takes the same time as the Courtesy Turn on the outside.

Each part of this call ends in an Eight Chain Thru or Trade By formation. Dancers should not drift into a circular formation as in Wrong Way Grand (#8c).

CommentsThe Ocean Wave Rule applies to this call.

At Mainstream, Courtesy Turn (#15) is restricted to a man turning a woman. Therefore, at Mainstream, Eight Chain Thru is improper after Heads Square Thru 4, Sides Half Sashay. However, Eight Chain 3 would be proper.

CLOVERLEAF

The general action of a Cloverleaf has the active dancers walking in a 3/4 circle, staying in their own quadrant of the set. A cloverleaf ramp at a highway intersection or the edge of one leaf of a four-leaf clover gives a good visual picture of the dance path.

Cloverleaf (Everyone Active)

Starting formationCompleted Double Pass Thru

Command examplesCloverleaf

Everyone Cloverleaf

Dance actionThe lead dancers separate and move away from each other in a three quarter (270 degrees) circle.

When each lead dancer approaches another lead dancer from the other side of the square, they both reach with outside hands, blending into a couple handhold as they continue into the center of the square to become a couple facing in.

Each trailing dancer follows the dancer in front, and ends directly behind that same dancer.

Starting formation – ocean wave only. The ends of the wave cross fold as the centers of the wave fold in behind the ends and follow them around, then face in to end as two facing couples.

STYLING: All dancers, arms in natural dance position, hands ready to adjust for next call as quickly as possible.

Timing: 4 steps.
