From any formation with no dancers facing directly toward or away from the flagpole center: Each dancer
moves forward the designated number of quarters (1/4 unless otherwise specified) around the flagpole center
of the formation, staying the same distance from that center as though he were on a wheel turning about
that center. With each quarter he Counter Rotates, the dancer faces a new wall (i.e., he turns 90°).
The original outsides always finish as outsides, and the original centers always finish as centers. For
example, "Points Counter Rotate 1/4":
Teaching Hint: From parallel waves, people tend to try to Split Counter Rotate. Describing the action, from
that formation only, as "Concentric Box Counter Rotate" helps a great deal.
