Do the anything call, omitting the final Extend or Step Thru. Optionally, the caller could say Hold The Line | Wave to mean the same thing.

Some callers use the phrase To A Line instead of To A Wave if the (designated) dancers are to stop in a Line. For example, from Columns: Checkmate The Column, Last Two To A Line.

Here is a partial list of calls (C2 or below) that might be done To A Wave:

Square Chain Thru To A Wave [C1]: From Facing Couples (or R-H Wave). Square Thru but on the 2nd hand Left Swing Thru 1 & 1/2. Ends in a L-H Wave.

Some callers use the phrase 'To A Wave' in a strictly "helpful" manner (e.g., from a 1/4 Tag, Extend To A Wave when merely Extend would have sufficed). The phrase 'To A Wave' is also used to tell the dancers to not re-establish a distorted formation (e.g., Stagger Transfer The Column To A Wave). In these cases, the callers are not using the anything To A Wave CONCEPT.

The following calls (C2 or below) contain the phrase 'To A Wave' but are not part of this concept:

any Tagging call Back To A Wave Circle To A Wave Cross Roll To A Wave
Dixie Style To A Wave Dosado To A Wave Right | Left Roll To A Wave
Single Circle To A Wave Step To A Wave Walk Out To A Wave
