  • Mini-Busy can be fractionalized into thirds: EN: 40
    1. Leaders Face In as Trailers 1/2 Circulate; EN: 50
    2. Original Leaders Step Ahead as Very Centers Hinge; EN: 60
    3. Original Leaders 1/4 In as Centers Flip The Diamond. EN: 70
  • 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. EN: 80

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. EN: 256

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. EN: 40

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. EN: 372

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. EN: 373
