I believe Rick Mohr called it a Nevada twirl in one of his dances. ________________________________ From: Andy Shore <square.a.sh...@gmail.com> Sent: Sunday, March 24, 2019 6:53:43 PM To: Tepfer, Seth Cc: callers Subject: [External] Re: [Callers] Opposite StarThru and functional difference in LD v Slide

What is the name of the opposite of a star thru (Lark/Gent left hand to Lady/Raven right hand)? MWSD offers one option, probably not a term to use in a contra setting. Arky Star Thru is a position dependent (rather than dance role dependent version): From Facing Couples. Beaus do the Boys part, and Belles do the Girls part of a Star Thru. (Everybody uses the inside hand) Ends in Facing Couples. https://www.ceder.net/oldcalls/viewsingle.php?RecordId=155 This is not exactly what you asked for, which is to use the OTHER HAND than typical of your role, but independent of your position. Left Star Thru (edited slightly) From a boy facing a girl: boy holds left hand up and girl places her right palm against it. boy steps forward and does a quarter left as the girl passes the boy left shoulders under the raised arms and does a quarter right. Finishes as a couple. https://www.ceder.net/oldcalls/viewsingle.php?RecordId=3616 Note that Bob Isaacs uses "Jersey Twirl" for a wrong-side California Twirl with the Lark going under. Note that California Twirl (and Jersey Twirl) are 180˚ turns, while Star Thru and Arky Star Thru are 90˚ turns. /Andy Shore ________________________________ This e-mail message (including any attachments) is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
