Peel Off
DEFINITION:
Each lead dancer turns away from the center of the starting formation, walks in a semicircle and steps forward to become an end dancer of the new line. Meanwhile, each trailing dancer steps forward and does a U turn back, turning away from the center of the starting formation to become the center dancer of the new line. From one couple following another, the ending formation is a line of four; from a Z, the ending formation is a two-faced line; from a box circulate, dancers may have to take one step forward to adjust to a two-faced line.

STARTING FORMATION:
One couple following another, Box Circulate or Z-formation.

TIMING:
4 steps.

STYLE:
Arms should be held in natural dance position and ready to assume appropriate position for the next call. It is important that lead dancers move slightly forward before starting the "peeling" motion.
