Standard Applications:

Anything and Roll
— i) Various formations and arrangements depending on the (Anything) call

Comment: If the (Anything) and Roll call leaves active pairs facing after turning in opposite directions then success is nearly guaranteed. Also saying Roll to Face helps.

Examples: Star Thru and Roll, Slide Thru and Roll, California Twirl and Roll, Partner Trade and Roll.

Confusion regarding which wall to face is likely when the anything call involves 1/4 or 1/2 turns with both dancers moving in the same direction. These moves are best used just before a resolution or clarified with Lines Go Up and Back.

Examples: Touch 1/4 and Roll, Single Hinge and Roll, and (from a mini-wave) Trade and Roll
