Starting formation - Quarter Tag.
The movement starts and ends in a Quarter Tag formation. Each dancer
Circulates, or moves forward one position along the path shown in
Figure 1. The movement may also be called when there is a left-hand
wave in the center. In this case, the path circulated along is as shown
in Figure 2. It should be noted that the Circulate paths are
independent of each other. Therefore, it is possible for only those on
the outside path (dancers numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 in Figures 1 & 2) to
Ping Pong Circulate or only those on the inside path (dancers numbered
5, 6, 7, & 8 in Figures 1 & 2) to Ping Pong Circulate.
Starting formation - Dixie Grand Circle, Double Pass Thru, Quarter Tag, or any formation where at least two dancers can start.
Those who can start the call by joining right hands with the facing
dancer and pulling by. Each dancer moves ahead around the circle and
gives a left hand to the next, pulling by, and a right hand to the
next, pulling by. Regardless of the starting formation, as the movement
progresses, the formation converts to a circle.

Starting formation - Parallel Ocean Waves.
All Circulates in this definition refer to the Original Circulate path
established by the ends of the original ocean waves. No dancer ever
stops moving during this call; the pauses written into the definition
(i.e., the action described as "half-circulate") are there for clarity
of description and for teaching purposes only. Each end and the
adjacent center dancer turn one-half (180 degrees). The new centers of
each ocean wave turn three-quarters (270 degrees), while the others
half-circulate, forming a six-person wave and two lonesome dancers. The
wave of six, working as 3 pairs, turns one-half, while the others
half-circulate. In the wave, the center 4 turn one-half, while the
other four dancers half-circulate. The wave of 6, again working as 3
pairs, turns one-half, while the others half-circulate. Finally, the
center 4 of the wave turn 3/4 (becoming the centers of the new waves),
while the outside 4 half-circulate to become the ends of the final
(ANYTHING) & ROLL
Starting formation - Various.
The term "... & Roll" may be added to any call which, by definition, causes one or more dancers to have turning body flow to the right or left as they complete their portion of the call. It is an instruction to those dancer(s) to turn individually, in place, one quarter (90 degrees) more in the direction of body flow determined by the preceding command.
Note that if "... and Roll" is added to a call, which by definition, has some dancers walking in a straight line at the completion of their portion of the call, those dancers will do nothing for the "... and Roll".
