applicable 2 x 4 T-Bones, or other applicable formations.
1/2 Circulate; those in the resulting Center Line|Wave Hinge & 1/2
Box Circulate as the Others Trade; those who meet Cast Off 3/4
as the Others move up (Phantom Hourglass Circulate).
Ends in Parallel Lines|Waves
(or a Parallelogram if dancers end on the same spot).
The Hinge can be either a Single Hinge (Arm Turn 1/4)
or a Partner Hinge.
The Trade can be either an Arm Turn 1/2 or a Partner Trade
(from a Couple). When starting from Parallel Two-Faced Lines,
a common dancer mistake is for the Outsides to Hinge twice
instead of Partner Trade.
The Cast Off 3/4 can be either an Arm Turn 3/4
or a 'Push'-style Cast Off 3/4.
Be very careful and precise when doing Tally-Ho since there are a
large number of possible starting formations.
Do the 1/2 Circulate and then look around to see if you are in
the Center Line! Don't assume that if you start facing out you will be
doing the Outsides' part!
Teamwork is often required to successfully complete this call.

Note that in the last diagram above, dancers
(and also dancers
) move up to end on the
same spot and therefore step to Right
From a T-Bone 2 x 4:
Tally-Ho But anything [NOL]:
Do a Tally-Ho but replace the Centers Cast Off 3/4
with the Centers doing the anything call.
Note: When doing a Circulate from Parallel Inverted Lines, the Center 4 are in the inside Circulate
path whereas the Outer 4 are in the outside Circulate path. After a 1/2 Circulate from Inverted Lines, the
Center 4 always end up in the Center Wave! From Parallel Inverted Lines with the Centers facing out,
dancers often get tricked into thinking the Outer 4 become the Centers after a 1/2 Circulate.
