Hint: When Criss Cross The Shadow is called from Promenade, the designated Couple (Leaders) should keep Promenading until they are squared off to a wall and then Step Ahead as the others bend in behind them to form Parallel Two-Faced Lines, then everyone Criss Cross The Shadow. Executing the call in this manner guarantees that the ending formation (Parallel Waves) is squared off to the walls.

Relay The Shadow anyone Criss Cross [C2V]: From Facing Lines or a Tidal Wave. Do a Relay The Shadow, but those doing the Center's part of Cast A Shadow (the anyone dancers) do the Center's part of Criss Cross The Shadow [C2] instead. Ends in Parallel Two-Faced Lines.

Criss Cross Shadow The Column [C4]: From Columns. #1 and #3 dancers act as Ends while #2 and #4 dancers act as Centers of Parallel Two-Faced Lines, and all Criss Cross The Shadow.

Cast A Shadow [A1] (Lee Kopman 1973): From Parallel Lines with the Ends in Tandem or from Promenade (in which case, the designated dancers act as Leaders in Parallel Two-Faced Lines). Ends 1/2 Zoom, Cast Off 3/4 and Spread as Out-Facing Centers Cloverleaf as In-Facing Centers Extend, Hinge, & Extend. Adjust as necessary to end in Parallel Lines.

Variation: Ends Criss Cross The Shadow But Don't Spread.
