Notes:

  • The anything call is done from a Wave, not from Facing Couples. This makes a difference for calls such as Recycle or Single Wheel. EN: 40
  • In the past, some callers believed that the default fractions were 1/4 and 1/4 and would simply call 'Circle By' without any fractions expecting the dancers to do a Circle By 1/4 By 1/4. This usage is considered inappropriate today. EN: 50
