Run (Boys, Girls, Ends, Centers)
DEFINITION:
The directed (active) dancers run around the inactive dancers using the general rule. Note: General rule. The directed (active) dancer moves forward in a semi-circle (180') around an adjacent (inactive) dancer to end in the adjacent dancer's starting position. Meanwhile, the inactive dancer, who may be facing in any direction, adjusts by stepping (without changing facing direction) into the vacated starting position of the active dancer. The active dancer doing the run has reversed his original facing direction. If the direction to run is not specified (right or left) and if the active dancer has an inactive dancer on each side, then centers run around ends and ends run around centers. Runs from an alamo circle are to the right unless otherwise directed.

STARTING FORMATION:
Any two-dancer formation in which the directed dancer has a shoulder directly adjacent to the other dancer.

TIMING:
From ocean waves, centers, 4 steps; ends, 4.

STYLE:
Hands should blend into handholds required for following formation.
