From Parallel Lines in which each Line has at least one Out-Facing End.

  1. 1/2 Out Roll Circulate;
  2. Triple Trade;
  3. Centers Ah So as Ends do two Phantom "O" Circulates (Hocus Pocus).

Ends in Parallel Waves. This is a 3-part call.

1/2 Out Roll Circulate
Triple Trade
Centers Ah So
as Ends Hocus Pocus


  • If both Ends of the Line start Facing Out, Prefer The Right-most End for the 1/2 Out Roll Circulate (i.e., 1/2 Here Comes The Judge). If the caller wishes the Left-most End to be Preferred, the caller will say Left or Mirror Outpost.
  • The End doing the 1/2 Circulate should clearly identify themself so that the other dancers in their Line know toward which direction to move.

Here Comes The Judge [C2] (Ralph Pavlik 1968): From a Line (usually of 4) in which both Ends are facing the same direction. The End Belle (Right-most End) do your part Ends Trade, as the Others Run one position towards the original End Belle's position. Ends in a Line. Here Comes The Judge is the same as Prefer the End Belle for an Out Roll Circulate.

Hocus Pocus [C2] (Norm Poisson 1979): From applicable formations including all 2 x 4 setups, Twin Diamonds, 1/4 Tag, etc. Outside 4 dancers do two Phantom "O" Circulates as Center 4 Trade.
