Hints:

  • Those doing the Pass Thru should point at each other before moving. EN: 40
  • Be careful not to get Reactivate mixed up with Reaction. Some dancers shout 'Toe' when the call is Reactivate ('Reac-TOE-vate') and 'Shun' when the call is Reaction ('Reac-SHUN'). EN: 50

Cross Reactivate [C3B]:
From an applicable Generalized 1/4 Tag. Same as Reactivate, except that the Very Centers Diagonal Pass Thru with the diagonally-facing Outside dancers. Ends in Parallel Lines or Parallelogram Parallel Lines. EN: 758

anything (Cross) Reactivate [C3B]:
Do the anything call leaving off the final Extend, then do a full (Cross) Reactivate. The anything call is usually a Scoot Back variation of a Tagging call. EN: 759
