Note: It is considered incorrect to call “Spin Chain Thru” from an Alamo or a Thar because the definition starts in Parallel Waves and depends on those waves to make it clear which arm to use. However, there is nothing wrong with using Fractional Turns and Stars to call the core action.

Break using the Spin Chain Thru action in an Alamo Ring:

Circle Left (8),
Allemande Left in Alamo Style and Balance,
Right Turn half, Left Turn three-quarters,
Centers Star Right half, All Left Turn three-quarters,
