Break up the anything call into its component parts. Do the anything call normally until the given part; then do the given part applying the given CONCEPT then do the remaining parts of the anything call normally.

Notes:

  • Only apply the given CONCEPT to the given part. I.e.,
    • Secondly: only apply the concept to the second part.
    • Thirdly: only apply the concept to the third part.
    • Fourthly: only apply the concept to the fourth part.
  • Also possible, but rarely used: Fifthly, Sixthly, Seventhly (e.g., Seventhly Twisted Eight Chain Thru). There are very few calls that have more than 4 parts.
  • Do the call but when you reach the given part, re-evaluate and apply the given CONCEPT to the given part, then re-evaluate your position in the resulting formation and do the remainder of the call.
  • Secondly | Thirdly | Fourthly are Meta Concepts. A Meta Concept applies to another concept, not a call. The caller can not say Secondly anything where anything is just a call. The caller must give a concept after the word Secondly.
  • Sometimes, the given concept may not "feel" like a concept. E.g., Secondly Boys, or Thirdly Twice. For the purposes of Secondly|Thirdly|Fourthly, anything that modifies the call is considered a concept. This includes identifiers (e.g., Boys, Girls, Ends, Centers, Leaders, Trailers, Beaus, Belles, Heads, Sides); formations (e.g., Triple Box); numerics (e.g., twice, 1 & 1/2, 2/3); and other modifiers (e.g., Transfer And, Tally Ho But).
  • It is important to re-evaluate your position both before and immediately after the given part as, depending upon the given concept, you may unexpectedly be working with different dancers or in a different formation.

Initially Concept [C3A] (Vic Ceder 1994): Do the first part of the anything call applying the given CONCEPT; then do the remainder of the anything call without the given CONCEPT.

Finally Concept [C3A] (Vic Ceder 1994): Do the entire anything call applying the given CONCEPT only to the last part of the anything call.

Oddly Concept [C3B] (Vic Ceder): Do the odd-numbered parts applying any CONCEPT and the even-numbered parts normally.

Evenly CONCEPT [C3B] (Vic Ceder): Do the even-numbered parts applying any CONCEPT and the odd-numbered parts normally.

Initially | Secondly | etc Use A(n) anything1 For A(n) anything2 [C4]: Replace the given part of the anything2 call with the anything1 call. E.g., from R-H Columns: Thirdly Use An Ah So for a Swing The Fractions: all Right Arm Turn 1/4; those who can left Arm Turn 1/2; everybody Ah So; those who can Left Arm Turn 1/2; all Right Arm Turn 1/4.
