 Explode And Alter 

Definition:
 

From lines facing in or out: Do an Explode then the center four form a wave and do an Alter The Wave as the ends pull by with right hands to move around the outside to face in as a pair with the person they meet. When the Alter the Wave is completed, those in the wave step thru to form a four hand right hand star with the outside two. The beau who did the Step Thru breaks to lead out into facing lines. NOTE: This movement went considerably beyond the Explode And Anything concept. One factor that prevented its being used much was its similarity to Change A Web which was being workshopped during the same general time period.
