Noter:
  • 1/4 Top, 1/2 Top, and 3/4 Top are known as fractional tops. They are based on the call All Eight Spin The Top [Plus]. EN: 40

    • On All Eight Spin The Top, everybody does an Arm Turn 1/2 then moves up to meet the 4-th dancer. EN: 50
    • On 1/4 | 1/2 | 3/4 Top, everybody does an Arm Turn 1/2 then moves up to meet the n-th dancer, where n = 1 for 1/4 Top, n = 2 for 1/2 Top, or n = 3 for 3/4 Top. EN: 60
  • Do not rush these calls. In particular, these calls are often called in rapid succession (e.g., 3/4 Top, followed by a 1/4 Top, followed by a 1/2 Top, etc.). Do not get over-anxious and start another Arm Turn 1/2 until you actually hear the next call. EN: 70
  • Verbally or mentally count the dancers as they go by. Count to 3 for 3/4 Top; 2 for 1/2 Top, and 1 for 1/4 Top. EN: 80
  • The first part of these calls is to Arm Turn 1/2. Therefore, if the call is 1/4 Top, don't try to start by doing a 1/4 turn. EN: 90
