Center 4 do the first anything call and the resulting Ends (of that Center 4) move away from the Center of the Set without changing their facing direction (i.e., Stable). The Others (original Outsides) work around the Very Centers to do the second anything call, ending as close as possible to the positions vacated by the resulting Ends of the Center 4. EN: 20

Dancing Hint: The original Outsides should usually delay moving until the Centers have almost completed the first anything call, so that sufficient space is available for the Outsides to execute the second anything call. EN: 70

Checkpoint anything By anything [C2] (Lee Kopman 1982):
From a 1 x 8, Point-to-Point Diamonds, or any other applicable formation in which there are Centers of each side. The Centers of each side work together, concentrically, around the Very Center dancers, to do the first anything call (if possible ending so that they have changed the long axis of the starting formation); Remaining Outsides (2 or 4 dancers) move into the Center (without changing their facing direction) and work with the original Centermost dancers to do the second anything call. EN: 756
