Standard Applications:

Fan the Top
— i) Right-Hand Parallel Waves, “0” (Girls as centers and Boys as ends)

— ii) Center Four dancers in a Right-Hand Wave (Center …), BGGB wave in the Center

— iii) Right-Hand Tidal Wave (Each Four …), BGGB in each four

Comment for i, ii, and iii: This is rarely a “safe” call because Centers, who must start the action with left hands (when it is called from Right-Hand Waves), must resist their natural tendency to start all calls with a right hand. Best success with this call is after a call where all have used their right hands, as in the series: Single Hinge, (Girls connect) Fan the Top.
