5.1   BOX CALLS THAT CHANGE PARTNERS (PART 2)

5.1.1   LADIES CHAIN

IN-FACING BOX: Each dancer in the BELLE position steps forward, extends a right hand to the opposite dancer, pulls by the right, and lets go when passing right shoulders. The dancer from a BEAU position steps forward and to the right, turns left to face the same direction as the on-coming dancer. The dancer from the BEAU position extends the left hand (palm up) to the extended left hand (palm down) of the other dancer, and they do a COURTESY TURN. The dancers end up in an IN-FACING BOX.

5.1.2   FLUTTERWHEEL

NOTE:   FLUTTERWHEEL is counterpart to a LADIES CHAIN because MEN CHAIN is not a valid call.

IN-FACING BOX: Each dancer in the BELLE position moves into the center, takes the right arm of the on-coming dancer, and turns clockwise. As each of these center dancers turns adjacent to the opposite dancer in a BEAUposition, that dancer reaches out with the free left hand (palm down) and takes the left hand (palm up) of the opposite dancer. The two dancers walk clockwise around the center to the center dancers starting BELLE position. The center dancers release right forearms, and the two couples turn to face the center of the BOX. The dancers end up in an IN-FACING BOX.

CALLER’S NOTE:

The 29 calls in Lessons 2, 3, 4 and 5 can be done in any sequence, as long as they can be executed. The worst that can happen is that 1) the LADY dancer does not end up  paired with the original MAN dancer and 2) the COUPLE is not at HOME position. From any BOX position, the calls SWING YOUR ORIGINAL PARTNER and PROMENADE HOME, will resolve the set, that is, square the set.
