Notes:
  • Mini-Busy can be fractionalized into thirds:
    1. Leaders Face In as Trailers 1/2 Circulate;
    2. Original Leaders Step Ahead as Very Centers Hinge;
    3. Original Leaders 1/4 In as Centers Flip The Diamond.
  • The CALLERLAB definition uses Trailers As Couples Extend instead of a Trailers 1/2 Circulate. This gives different results if the starting formation is Inverted Lines (with the Centers facing In), and precludes calling the call from other formations such as Parallel Waves.

Keep Busy [C3A] (Lee Kopman 1977): From Parallel Two-Faced Lines. Leaders Couples Circulate With The Flow (Ends Walk, Centers Dodge) as Trailers 1/2 Circulate, Very Centers Hinge, Flip The Diamond, Step & Fold (Centers Step Ahead as Ends Fold). Ends in Parallel Waves. This is a 4-part call for the Trailers.

Turn & Deal [A1] (Colin Walton 1963): From any Line of 4. As one movement, 1/2 Tag then turn 1/4 in place toward your initial turning direction. Ends in a 2 x 2.

Any Shoulder anything [NOL]: Passing the most convenient (smoothest to dance) shoulder, do the anything call. I.e., from a R-H Two-Faced Line, pass Right-shoulders; from a L-H Two-Faced Line, pass Left-shoulders.

Flip The Diamond [Plus] (Deuce Williams 1973): From a Diamond. Centers do your part Diamond Circulate as Points Flip In (180°) towards the the nearest Center position. A normal Diamond ends in a Wave.
