Dancers work in each group of 4 (i.e., each Wave),
and do not crossover into the other group of 4.

From a 1 x 8 (Tidal setup), the Step & Slide is done on each side, then the space between the two groups is collapsed to form a compact setup. This is known as Square Breathing.

From a Tidal Line:

Step & Flip [C1]: From a Line or other applicable 4-dancer formation. Centers Step Ahead as Ends Flip (180 °) into the adjacent Center position. Ends in either a Box (2 x 2) or a "Z" (4 spots within a 2 x 3 Matrix).

Step & Fold [C1] (Ron Schneider 1970): From a Wave, Inverted Line or other applicable formations. Centers Step Ahead (1/2 Press Ahead) as Ends Fold. A Wave ends in a Mini-Wave Box; an Inverted Line ends in Tandem Couples.

Step And anything [C2]: From various formations. Centers Step Ahead (usually a Press Ahead); Ends do the anything call.

Slim Down [C4]: From any 2 x 4 or other applicable formation. Without turning, Centers move one position toward the nearest unoccupied outside position as Outsides move one position toward the center. Everyone does either a sidestep right, sidestep left, step forward, or step backward. From Parallel Lines with the Centers facing out, Slim Down is the same as Step & Slide.
