Emergency Call for Medical Aid (ECMA)

  1. ECMA IS THE ABBREVIATION FOR EMERGENCY CALL FOR MEDICAL AID. This signal is for use by the DANCERS to notify the Caller of a medical problem in their square. Important minutes are frequently lost in the frenzy of waving arms and explanations that cannot be heard or understood across a crowded dance floor.
    1. STEP ONE: When a dancer goes down, a second dancer attends him/her.
    2. STEP TWO: Remaining couples join hands and take a step backward. This allows the injured person and attendant air and room.
    3. STEP THREE: Raise joined hands as high as possible in the form of an arched circle.
    4. STEP FOUR: On seeing this signal, the Caller or hall monitor will immediately place an Emergency Call For Medical Aid.
  2. Callers/Cuers please take time to explain the arched circle ECMA signal to your dancers and familiarize them with the procedure and its purpose.
