Dancing hints:

  • The End of the Center Wave can give the adjacent Center a slight tug (as you might in a Recycle or Flip Back) to start them moving in the correct direction.
  • The Outside dancers doing the Press Ahead, Trade & Spread should point at each other at the beginning of the call.

anything & Circle (fraction) [C2]: From applicable formations. All or Center 4 do the anything call. Outside 6 move up one position as in Swing & Circle 1/4. The move up direction for the Outside 6 (clockwise or counter-clockwise) depends upon the facing direction of the dancer who becomes the end of the Center 4 after the anything call. After completion of & Circle 1/4, the Outside 4 adjust as necessary to become Couples facing in. Repeat the entire movement (including the anything call) for each 1/4 (e.g., if the fraction is 3/4, do the entire movement 3 times). If no fraction is given, do the entire movement 4 times.
