With The Flow -- [C1]
(Larry Dunn 1984)
 C1:

 Language: or

From Facing Couples.

This call must be preceded by a call in which the dancers have some sort of turning flow (i.e., all dancers are moving in a Clockwise or Counter Clockwise direction). Any call that can be followed by Sweep 1/4 can also be followed by With The Flow.

The dancers closest to the flow direction Walk (Circulate) as the others Dodge.

Ends in a Mini-Wave Box.

Alternative definition: From Facing Couples & preceded by a call in which everyone's Rolling direction is the same. If the Rolling direction is Clockwise (to the Right), then the Walk & Dodge is Clockwise (Beau Walk, Belle Dodge). Similarly, if the Rolling direction is Counter-Clockwise (to the Left), then Belle Walk, Beau Dodge.

Notes:

• Go with the body flow. If it feels awkward, then you did it wrong.
• With The Flow may cause you to stop 'cheating' certain calls (e.g., Head Ladies Chain With The Flow).

Flowing anything [C4]: Do a With The Flow; then Finish the anything call (i.e., Replace the first part of the anything call with a With The Flow).
