*The last example (From a Wave), is for informational purposes only. Cross Fire is rarely called from a Wave, even at C4. In this case, dancers end on the same spot, and hence share the spot by stepping to a right-hand Mini-Wave. Dancers are offset because the shared ending spots are not on an axis of the original formation.

Notes:
  • Only the original Ends can Roll.
  • According to the CALLERLAB definitions, when Cross Fire is done from Out-Facing Lines, the ending formation is a 1/4 Tag formation. We disagree.

This is the starting formation
for each of the following:

Cross Fire
according to CALLERLAB

Cross Fire
