Definitions of Square Dance Calls and Concepts
 
 
From applicable formations.

Square Thru n To A Wave; do the anything call; Step & Fold.

Ends in various formations.

Notes:
  • The anything call can be an 8-dancer call.
  • If the anything call is 'Lock' do a Lockit; if the anything call is 'Top' do a Fan The Top.
  • In our opinion, the caller should always use the complete name for the anything call: a dancer who has learned Catch anything n but has not been exposed to Catch Top n would not necessarily know that 'Top' refers to a Fan the Top (as opposed to a Spin The Top, Relay The Top, Tag The Top, or some other call).
  • The anything call may end in a Diamond. If so, do a Step & Fold from a Diamond: Centers 1/2 Press Ahead as Points Fold to end in a T-Bone 2 x 2.
