From parallel waves: All arm turn half, new centers arm turn 3/4 as the ends do a U-turn back. Centers of the wave across the set Trade and then form four hand left hand stars to turn exactly half. Trailing dancer takes the hand of the person in front to "push" that person into the center of new waves as they themselves moves into the end positions. Finishes in parallel waves.
