Noter:

  • For simple calls (such as "O" Circulate, "O" Split Counter Rotate 1/4, etc.) move directly to your ending footprints. For more complex calls, start the call working distorted, blend into a normal setup, complete the call normally, and then have the resulting Centers move away from the Center to re-establish the "O" footprints. EN: 90
    For simple kald (som "O" Circulate, "O" Split Counter Rotate 1/4, osv.) så gå direkte til din end-position. For mere komplexe calls, så start kaldet fra "O" positionen, glid ind i det normale setup, færdiggør kaldet normalt, og dem der ender som centers bevæger sig væk fra center for at retablere "O" formationen. DK: 90
  • If dancers occupy "O" footprints but the caller wishes them to work in distorted Parallel Lines, the term Big Block [C3A] is used. EN: 100
    Hvis danserne står på "O" pladser men calleren ønsker at de arbejder i distorted parallel lines, bruges termen "Big Blocks" (C3A) DK: 100
  • Sometimes the caller wants you to start the call in your "O" but finish in a normal setup. In these cases the caller will add a suffix such as 'To Normal Waves', 'To A Line', 'To Columns', etc. (e.g., "O" Checkmate To Normal Lines). EN: 110
    Hvis Calleren ønsker at starte i "O" formation og slutte i normalt setup vil han i disse tilælde tilføje eks. "To Normal Waves", "To A Line", "To Columns", osv.. (f. eks. "O" Checkmate To Normal Lines). DK: 110
  • An "O" can also be T-Bone in which case you do your part working in your own set of distorted Columns. EN: 120
    En "O" formation kan også være en T-Bone og her følger du din part, arbejdende i dit eget sæt af forskudte Columns. DK: 120
