Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
{anything} And Anything [C4]

Do the anything call but replace the final Centers Cast Off 3/4 with a Centers Cast Off 1/4 as the others U-Turn Back.

  • The words 'And Anything' are actually said.
  • The final Cast Off 3/4 becomes a Cast Off 1/4 not a Hinge.
  • The U-Turn Back is toward the partner.
  • If the anything call ends in the word 'Thru', the word 'Thru' is conventionally omitted.

    For example,

  • The anything call must end with a Centers Cast Off 3/4 (e.g., 'Scoot & Counter And Anything' is illegal, because even though the Centers do a Cast Off 3/4, their final movement is a Counter Rotate 1/4).

Here is a partial list of anything calls:
