Rotary anything [C2]: From an Eight Chain Thru (or Parallel R-H Waves). Right Pull By; Outsides Courtesy Turn & Roll as Centers Step To A L-H Wave and do the anything call. Ending formation (dependent upon the anything call) can be Parallel Lines, Diamonds, Hourglass, etc.

Single Rotary Spin [C3A]: From a Single Eight Chain Thru. Right Pull By; Centers Step To A L-H Mini-Wave and Cast Off 3/4 as Outsides Left-face U-Turn Back (Single Courtesy Turn) and Roll. Ends in a R-H Wave.

Rotary Spin The Windmill [obsolete]: From an Eight Chain Thru (or Parallel R-H Waves). Right Pull By; Outsides Courtesy Turn & Roll as Centers Step To A L-H Wave; all Spin The Windmill Forward (Ends Circulate 2 As You Are). Ends in Parallel R-H Waves. In our opinion, usage of this call should be avoided since dancers could alternatively parse this call as a Rotary Spin followed by The Windmill [C1].
