Notes:

Fan The Top [Plus] (Deuce Williams 1967): From a Line or Diamond with the Centers in a Mini-Wave; or from Facing Couples, in which case dancers first Step To A Wave. Centers Arm Turn 3/4 as Ends walk forward in an arc, turning 90°, to move up 1/4 of a circle around the center of the 4-dancer formation. A Wave or Facing Couples ends in a Wave.

Peel Off [Plus] (Howard Liffick 1962): From an applicable 2 x 2 (usually a Mini-Wave Box or Tandem Couples) or a "Z". As one movement, Leaders flip away (180°) from the center of the 4-dancer formation and step forward if necessary as the Trailers step forward if necessary and U-Turn Back by turning away from the center of the 4-dancer formation. A Non-T-Bone starting formation always ends in a Line.

Trail The Top [C4]: From a Mini-Wave Box, applicable "Z", or applicable T-Bone 2 x 2. Leaders Trail Off as Trailers step ahead (to join inside hands with each other); Fan The Top. Trail The Top is the same as Peel The Top except that the Leaders Trail Off instead of Peel Off.
