From applicable formations.

All or Center 4 do the anything call. Outside 6 move up one position as in Swing & Circle 1/4.

The move up direction for the Outside 6 (clockwise or counter-clockwise) depends upon the facing direction of the dancer who becomes the end of the Center 4 after the anything call. After completion of & Circle 1/4, the Outside 4 adjust as necessary to become Couples facing in. Repeat the entire movement (including the anything call) for each 1/4 (e.g., if the fraction is 3/4, do the entire movement 3 times). If no fraction is given, do the entire movement 4 times.

Notes:

  • Swing & Circle fraction [C1] is the same as Swing-Slip & Circle fraction.
  • The ending formation for the Center 4 could be a Line, a Diamond or any other applicable 4-dancer formation. For example, from a 1/4 Diamond formation (a Diamond between In-facing Couples) the caller could call a Diamond Circulate & Circle 1/4.
  • The move up direction for the Outsides can change for each 1/4 fraction of the call. For example, from a R-H 1/4 Tag: Mix & Circle 1/2 would be a Centers Mix (ending in a L-H Wave); Outside 6 move Counter-Clockwise one position; Centers Mix (ending in a R-H Wave); Outside 6 move Clockwise one position. Since this usage of & Circle fraction is awkward to dance, callers usually only use it as an occasional gimmick.
  • Since the anything call can be done either by all 8 dancers or by just the Center 4 dancers, the caller should be explicit as to who is to do the anything call. For example, on a U-Turn Back & Circle 1/4 does everyone U-Turn Back or just the Center 4? Perhaps anything & Circle fraction should be defined as Center 4 do the anything call unless the anything call requires interaction with the outside dancers?

CONTRAST THE FOLLOWING:

  • Mix & Circle 1/2:
    Centers Mix; Outside 6 move up; Centers Mix; Outside 6 move up.
  • Mix & Circle 1/4 & Circle 1/4:
    Centers Mix; Outside 6 move up; Outside 6 move up.
