From applicable 8-dancer formations. EN: 10

Do the given 4-dancer call with the resulting Centers ending in the far Center positions. The given call must be a call that can be done with four dancers. EN: 15
Udfør det givne 4-danser kald: De 4 dansere der ender som Center dansere skal ende i den fjerne Center position ved at bevæge sig langs den lange akse af formationen. DK: 15

To get to the proper ending position, it is always possible to do the call in each group of 4, and then those who end as the centermost 4 dancers do a 'Substitute' with each other, moving away from the dancers with whom they have done the call. To dance this smoothly, the substitution is accomplished at some time during the call. This optimal time (usually toward call completion) varies and is dependent upon the call. EN: 20
For at nå til den rigtige slutposition, vil det altid være muligt at udføre kaldet i hver gruppe af 4, efterfulgt af at de 4 Center dansere laver en 'substitute' med hinanden hvor de bevæger sig væk fra de dansere de udførte kaldet med. For at få glidende dans kan denne 'substitute' gennemføres på et eller andet tidspunkt af kaldet. Det optimale tidspunkt varierer afhængig af kaldet. DK: 20
