From Parallel Waves or a Thar.

As one movement, 1/2 Circulate and Slide (nose-to-nose).

A Thar ends in an opposite-handed Thar; Parallel Waves end in a Thar.

Alternative definition: As one movement, Slip The Clutch & Spread.

From Parallel Waves:
 

 
before
Cross By
 after

From a Thar:
 

 
before
Cross By
 after

Notes:

  • Cross By changes a R-H setup to a L-H setup & vice-versa. Think about moving up to the next dancer, to join the opposite hand.
  • Ends become Centers and Centers become Ends.
  • Some callers call Cross By from a 1/4 Tag and want a Cross Extend [C1]. This usage of Cross By isn't correct since 1/2 Circulate isn't defined from a 1/4 Tag.
  • According to the CALLERLAB definition: from Parallel Waves Cross By does not end in a Thar but in a "wave between vertical mini-waves." This implies that there is a definite resulting Center Wave. We have never seen any caller try to exploit this aspect. We believe Cross By from Parallel Waves always ends in a Thar.
