Do the anything call leaving off the final Extend, then do a full Chain Reaction.

The anything call is usually a Scoot Back variation of a Tagging call.

For example,
Flip Reaction: From Parallel Waves. Flip Back Centers To A Wave then all Chain Reaction.
Tag Reaction: From Parallel Lines. Tag Back Centers To A Wave then all Chain Reaction.
Load The Boat Reaction: From Facing Lines (or R-H Tidal Wave). Load The Boat Centers To A Wave then all Chain Reaction.

Notes:

  • For Tagging calls, there is an unspoken 'Back' (Scoot Back) in them (e.g., Tag Reaction means Tag Back Reaction).
  • The outsides should adjust to form an In-facing Couple before doing the Chain Reaction.
  • Don't rush this call! Teamwork is required for successful completion. Wait for all dancers to form the 1/4 Tag formation before starting the Chain Reaction.

Examples:

Variations: Instead of Reaction, the caller may give another call such as

Chain Reaction [A1,C1] (Lee Kopman 1975): From an applicable Generalized 1/4 Tag. Very Centers and the directly facing Outside dancers Pass Thru as the End of the Center Line Counter Rotate 1/4 (on the Outside); Centers of each side Hinge; Center 4 Star 1/4 as Outsides Trade; Those who meet Cast Off 3/4 as Others move up (Phantom Hourglass Circulate). Ends in Parallel Lines | Waves.
