Starting formation - anywhere an allemande left is legal. All do an allemande left, blending into a right and left grand circle. All right pull by and left arm turn ½ the next to an ALLEMANDE THAR (men will be the centers). To avoid confusion with the call "ALLEMANDE THAR" or "MAKE A THAR", the caller almost always says words like "ALLEMANDE LEFT TO AN ALLEMANDE THAR, GO FORWARD 2, MEN SWING IN WITH A BACKUP STAR", or "ALLEMANDE LEFT, GO ALLEMANDE THAR, WITH A RIGHT AND LEFT AND THE 4 MEN STAR".
