Find call: 

{anything} The Wave [C4]
   (upphovsman okänd)
All levels:

From Parallel Waves.

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).

Trail The Wave
Tandem Step Thru
Trail Off

  • 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.
  • In our opinion, anything The Wave is a poorly named call and should probably be a prefix instead of a suffix. Since the first movement is to Tandem Step Thru and the second movement is to do the anything call, you must therefore wait and listen for the entire call before moving (e.g., 'Revolve To A Wave Like A Recoil The Wave'). For calls such as these the caller can help the dancers by prefacing the entire phrase with the word 'Delay'.
  • There is another use of anything The Wave which is occasionally used at 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:

anything Single The Wave [C4]: Från en Wave. Step Thru; gör anything callet. anything callet bör vara ett 4-dansare (eller färre) call, och arbeta med dansarna som var i din wave.
