This animation collection illustrates some of the ideas in Clark Baker's article, Hexagon Squares.
It serves two purposes. First, these animations provide a reference for how several calls would be danced in Hexagon Squares.
Second, they demonstrate the assertion made in the article that every 4-couple call has an unambiguous Hexagon equivalent, provided that the call has a well-defined traffic pattern. In other words, all calls work. You don't have to make any special rules to dance 4-couple calls in Hexagon Squares. In all the examples below, the 4-couple version of the call was animated by hand. The Hexagon version is the same animation, transformed mathematically into its Hexagon equivalent.
This page has animations of several calls, with Square and Hexagon versions side-by-side for comparison. There are simple calls to demonstrate the basic concept of Hexagon Squares, and there are also some fun and complex examples that show some of the more esoteric consequences of dancing challenge concepts in Hexagons.
The animations on this page compare formations in normal 4-couple squares and Hexagon Squares. You can see how the 4-couple formation is distorted into its Hexagon equivalent.
The idea of Hexagon Squares can be generalized to other numbers of dancers, as explained in Clark's article. This page has shows animations of the same call danced with 1, 2, 3, and 4 couples.
