At C4, there are 2 different usages of anything The WaveEN: 90
1. anything The Wave [C4]:
From a Wave. Do the anything call as if you started from Facing Couples. Some dancers 'rear-back' and then do the call. For example: Cross & Turn The Wave, Split Swap The Wave. This usage of The Wave is rarely used since it is usually awkward to dance. EN: 708
2. anything The Wave [C4]:
From Parallel Waves. In Tandem Step Thru; do the anything call. The anything call is usually a Peel Off movement (Peel Off, Trail Off, Peel & Trail, etc.) or Cloverleaf movement (Cloverleaf, Cross Cloverleaf). When the anything call is a Peel Off movement, the word 'Off' is conventionally omitted; similarly, when the anything call is a Cloverleaf movement, the word 'leaf' is conventionally omitted. This usage of The Wave is not related to Swap The WaveEN: 675
