Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
 
 
The Any Hand CONCEPT is typically used when doing calls that always start with the Right-hand from setups in which some dancers start with the Right-hand and some dancers start with the Left-hand. Sometimes Any Hand is used on a call that can start with either hand, such as Swing & Mix or Shazam, as an aid to warn the dancers that they are in an unusual setup (typically an Inverted Line) where some dancers are starting with the Left-hand.
