Note: Checker Board | Box is often taught as: Leaders Trade as the Others move into the Center and make the given formation (a 1 x 4 if Checker Board, or a 2 x 2 if Checker Box), do the anything call and then get back to the vacated spots. As dancers, we prefer to do the anything call working in a Distorted Column | Line | Wave | Box. That is, try to stay on the original spots and only move off them if necessary. For example, from Parallel L-H Waves, if the call is Checker Box Cross & Turn, the Trailing End (Belle) would simply U-Turn Back instead of move into the Center, make a Box, U-Turn Back, and Veer out to become an End. EN: 160
