Alter & Circulate [C2]
   (John SaundersKen Orr 1971)

   view (admin)

From Parallel Waves or Eight Chain Thru.

  1. Arm Turn 1/2;
  2. Centers Cast Off 3/4 as Ends U-Turn Back;
  3. Outside 4 Circulate as Very Centers Trade;
  4. each Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2;
  5. Flip The Diamond.

Ends in (opposite-handed) Parallel Waves. Alter & Circulate is a 5-part call.

  • The Diamond Counter Rotate 1/2 is also referred to as Star 1/2. The caller can modify the amount to turn the Diamond (usually 1/4 or 3/4). If you are a Center, be sure to retain handholds throughout the Diamond Counter Rotate. If you are an End, don't stick your hand into the "star," or you may cause confusion as to who should Flip into the Center.
  • Wait until there are four dancers in your Diamond before you start the Counter Rotate.
  • Alter & Circulate is the same as Alter The Wave [C1] Interrupt after part 2 with the Ends Circulate as the Very Centers Trade.
