Notes:

  • Circle To A Wave is the same as (in your group of 4) Circle Left 1/4 With The Flow.
  • Perhaps Circle To A Wave should have been named Circle To A Mini-Wave or Circle To A Box since it ends in a Mini-Wave Box, not in a Wave. From Facing Lines, Circle To A Wave ends in Columns, not in Waves.
  • It is interesting to note that in our copy of BURLESON'S SQUARE DANCE ENCYCLOPEDIA, this call is listed as Circle To A Wave | Column. According to Burleson's, Circle To A Wave starts from an Eight Chain Thru and ends in Parallel Waves, whereas Circle To A Column starts in Facing Lines and ends in Columns. We have never heard any caller call a Circle To A Column.
  • The call Single Circle To A Wave [Plus] is not related to Circle To A Wave. At C3 however, the Single CONCEPT can be applied to the call Circle To A Wave which sometimes results in confusion.

Mirror Circle (fraction) To A Wave [C3B]: From Facing Couples. Circle Right 1/4 (or the given fraction); Belles Walk as Beaus Dodge. Ends in a L-H Mini-Wave Box. This call has historically been known as Reverse Circle (fraction) To A Wave.

Circle The (fraction) Tag [C4] (Vic Ceder): From Facing Couples. Circle 1/4 Left; Beaus 1/2 Walk as Belles 1/2 Dodge (this is Circle The 1/4 Tag); Extend to the given fractional Tag formation. If no fraction is given, complete a full Tag The Line. Circle The 1/2 Tag is equivalent to Circle To A Wave.
