Notes:

  • The anything call is done from a Wave, not from Facing Couples. This makes a difference for calls such as Recycle or Single Wheel.
  • In the past, some callers believed that the default fractions were 1/4 and 1/4 and would simply call 'Circle By' without any fractions expecting the dancers to do a Circle By 1/4 By 1/4. This usage is considered inappropriate today.

Single Circle By fraction By fraction | anything [obsolete]: Single Circle the first given fraction and Step To A R-H Mini-Wave; Arm Turn the second given fraction or do the anything call. Single Circle By was voted off the C1 list several years ago.

Mirror Circle By fraction By fraction | anything [C3B]: From Facing Couples. Circle Right the first given fraction and Step To A Left-Hand Wave; Arm Turn the second given fraction or do the anything call. This call has historically been known as Reverse Circle By.
