From a Circle (a ring of 2 or more dancers).

Join hands and circle as directed to the left or right. If no direction is given, Circle Left.

The caller may or may not tell you to circle a specific amount. For example, if the caller says Circle Left, then circle left until the next command is given; on the other hand, if the caller says Circle Left 1/2 Way, then circle the given amount and then stop (1/2 way means to circle 1/2 way around the circle, so you have changed facing direction by 180°).

While circling, the caller may tell you to Reverse it, and circle the other direction.

Handholds: For the time being (when all circles consist of alternating Boys and Girls), Boys use a palms-up, and Girls use a palms-down.
