Notes:

  • The U-Turn Back is toward your partner (i.e., Roll twice).
  • Shazam can also be done from facing dancers: Touch; Arm Turn 1/4; U-Turn Back. This usage is rarely encountered nowadays.
  • Shazam is defined with an Arm Turn 1/4, not a Hinge. It is inappropriate to call Shazam from a Couple.
  • Shazam is an 'Any Hand' call. It can start with either the R-H or the L-H. Many years ago, several callers considered Shazam to be a R-H call (hence, from a L-H Wave, only the Centers would be active!).

anything Like A Shazam [C2V]: Do the anything call; U-Turn Back. The last part of the anything call is usually an Arm Turn.
