The Shorter or Longer Concept can be applied calls in which
all dancers are moving in the same direciton, either clockwise or
counter-clockwise within their group of 4 (a Box, Diamond, or Single 1/4) for
the last portion of the call.
Do the call normally, but end
1/2 of a Box Circulate position before (if Shorter) or
1/2 of a Box Circulate position after (if Longer)
the normal ending position.
Upon completion of the call, each dancer's facing direction is the same as if
the call was done normally. Only the ending spots on the floor are different.
Calls that normally end in a Box will end in a Single 1/4 or 3/4 Tag;
calls that normally end in a Diamond or Single 1/4 Tag will end in a Box.
