All 8 Recycle [C1]
(Lee Kopman 1974)

From a 1/4 Tag (or Squared Set or Thar).

Notes:
• In the second example shown above (i.e., The starting formation has Centers in a L-H Wave, Outsides in a R-H Mini-Wave or Couple), the original Centers must make a wide loop so as not to collide with the original Outsides.
• If the Outsides start in L-H Mini-Waves, then the resulting Center Wave is a L-H Wave.
• From a Thar: everyone does the 'Centers' part. Ends in a squared set.
• From a squared set: everyone does the 'Outsides' part. Ends in a Thar.

Variations: Centers go 2/3: All 8 Recycle.

All 8 Cycle & Wheel [C1V]: From a 1/4 Line or other applicable formations. Center dancers do a Wheel & Deal to end as Couples on the Outside as the Outside dancers move into the Center and do a Box Recycle [C1]. A 1/4 Line setup ends in a 1/4 Tag. All 8 Cycle & Wheel is identical to Cross Concentric Cycle & Wheel [C2].

Recycle [Mainstream] (Lee Kopman 1974): From a Wave. Centers Fold behind Ends and all adjust to a Mini-Wave Box; Box Counter Rotate 1/4; Roll. Ends in Facing Couples.

Recycle [from Facing Couples] [A2] (Lee Kopman 1974): From Facing Couples. Beaus 1/2 Box Circulate and Right-face U-Turn Back as Belles Left Dodge and Veer Left. Ends in a R-H Wave.
