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
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.
Those starting the call must be in Mini-Waves.
That is, the action must start with an Arm Turn, not with a 'Push' Cast.
Arm Turn 1/2 often becomes a Partner Trade.
Arm Turn 1/4 or 3/4 often becomes a 'Push' Cast Off 1/4 or 3/4.
Arm Turn 1/4 never becomes a Partner Hinge.
That is, from a Couple, do a Push Cast 1/4, NOT a Partner Hinge.

The following calls (C1 and below) can be used with the
Any Hand CONCEPT:
Two-Faced CONCEPT [C3B]:
From various formations.
Replace each Arm Turn 1/2 (i.e., Swing or Slip) with a Partner Trade
and do the given call.
This allows calls such as Spin The Top to be done from a Two-Faced Line.
