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:
Scoot Chain Thru To A Wave:
Scoot Back (Centers) To A Wave:
(Centers) To A Wave
| || after |
(Note that the Outside dancers

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.

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