Transfer And anything -- [A2]
(Deuce Williams 1975)
 A2:

 Language:

From Columns or other applicable formations. EN: 10

First Two dancers in the Column (#1 and #2) move forward in Single File around the outside of the other Column until parallel with the Center Box and then individually Face In (to end as a Couple) as the Others step forward to form a compact formation ("normalize") and do the anything call. EN: 20

Notes:

• At the A2-level (i.e., from normal Columns), "normalize" means to Circulate one position to form a Center Box. At other levels, "normalize" means to step forward to form a compact formation. "Normalize" is dependent upon the starting formation and the facing directions of dancers within that formation. A "normalize" could be a 1/2 Circulate, a full Circulate, or a Circulate 1 & 1/2. EN: 30
• The First Two (#1 and #2) can alternatively think about their part as any of the following: EN: 40
• From R-H Columns: Track 2 & Face In. EN: 50
• Single File Promenade (toward facing direction) a little less than 1/2 way and Face In. EN: 60
• Do 3 Column Circulates, taking a wider path than normal, then Face In. CALLERLAB describes the movement in this manner. EN: 70

The following examples illustrate how "normalize" works. These instances of Transfer And are primarily only used at C1 and above since the starting formations are T-Boned. EN: 80
