GO-AND-COME.
This is a form of the Cross-over, but made without turning. It is executed in Front formation, to eight bars of music. In the first two bars partners cross exactly as in the Cross-overóright shoulder to right shoulder. In bars 3 and 4, instead of turning, retire backwards in the line they crossedóright shoulder to right shoulder. In bars 5 and 6 they cross again, but left shoulder to left shoulder, and in bars 7 and 8 retire on the same lineóleft to left again.
This is called in the NotationóGo-and-Come.
THE RING.
In this, wherever it occurs, partners simply alter positions so that the whole side forms a ring, or circle. It is sometimes used at the finish of a dance; and in "Bean-setting" it occurs at the beginning. (See diagrams, p. 51.)
This is called in the NotationóRing.
