From Columns or other applicable formations.
- 1/2 Circulate;
- Center 6 Trade;
- Very Centers Veer Out as Very Outsides do your part Fan The Top.
Columns end in Parallel Two-Faced Lines.
Coordinate is a difficult call to do all-position. Hence, at Plus, Coordinate is usually only
called from R-H Columns where the Boys are #2 and #4 and the Girls are #1 and #3.
The final action for the Very Centers is a Veer Out, which means to move forward and outward without
changing your facing direction. Hence, if Coordinate is called from a starting formation such as
Facing Lines, the ending formation is a T-Bone.
The final 'move up' action for the Very Centers and the Very Outsides
can also be described as a Phantom Hourglass Circulate.
Teamwork is often required to successfully complete this call.
From Columns, the #4 dancers (Trailing Ends) are the key to executing the
call. Before moving, these dancers should make eye-contact with each other.
After the Circulate 1 & 1/2, these two dancers meet in the center of the
set. They should then hold their position for a moment to allow the other
dancers to get oriented before the Center 6 Trade.
Circulate 1 & 1/2 means to move forward 1 & 1/2 positions within the original formation.
Count spots on the floor. Do not count how many dancers you pass.

From Facing Lines:|
Note on the final part: the Very Centers veer away from each other without turning.
This results in the T-Bone ending formation shown above.
