From Columns or other applicable formations.

First Two dancers in the Column (#1 and #2) move forward in Single File around the outside of the other Column until parallel with the Center Box and then individually Face In (to end as a Couple) as the Others step forward to form a compact formation ("normalize") and do the anything call.

Notes:

• At the A2-level (i.e., from normal Columns), "normalize" means to Circulate one position to form a Center Box. At other levels, "normalize" means to step forward to form a compact formation. "Normalize" is dependent upon the starting formation and the facing directions of dancers within that formation. A "normalize" could be a 1/2 Circulate, a full Circulate, or a Circulate 1 & 1/2.
• The First Two (#1 and #2) can alternatively think about their part as any of the following:
• From R-H Columns: Track 2 & Face In.
• Single File Promenade (toward facing direction) a little less than 1/2 way and Face In.
• Do 3 Column Circulates, taking a wider path than normal, then Face In. CALLERLAB describes the movement in this manner.

The following examples illustrate how "normalize" works. These instances of Transfer And are primarily only used at C1 and above since the starting formations are T-Boned.
