Diamond Chain Thru variations:

(Anything) Chain Thru. All do the "anything" call, then the very centers Trade and the center 4 Cast Off 3/4. See 'Interlocked Diamond Formation'.

Dixie Diamond
From facing couples or facing tandems: All Dixie Style to a Wave. Then the centers Hinge while the ends U-Turn Back (turning toward each other). Ends in a right-hand diamond.

Dixie Sashay
From facing couples or tandems: As a single smooth motion, Dixie Style to A Wave and Slither, to form a 2-faced line. This call cannot be fractionalized.

Flip the Line 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full
From waves only: Centers Run and all any-shoulder Tag the Line the given fraction (1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full). Any-shoulder means: From right-hand waves, use a right shoulder pass; from left-hand waves use a left shoulder pass.

Follow Thru
From a box circulate, T-bone, or single quarter tag: All 1/2 Scoot Back. Ends in a wave, 2-faced line or diamond.

Follow Your Neighbor variations:

Chase Your Neighbor. From couples back to back: Start a Chase Right, blending into a Follow Your Neighbor: The original beaus begin the Chase Right, meet each other, and Cast Off 3/4. The original belles begin the Zoom action, but after passing each other, they "Fold and Roll" to finish as the ends of a wave.

Cross Your Neighbor. From box circulate: Those facing in Cross Extend and Cast Off 3/4, while those facing out Fold and Roll.
Teaching Hint: This is a Follow Your Neighbor with the trailers using the opposite hand from which they are holding their partner.

Grand Follow Your Neighbor. From columns: The #1 dancer in each column does the leads' part of Follow Your Neighbor ("Fold and Roll"). The #2, 3, and 4 dancers do the trailers' part of Follow Your Neighbor (Extend and Cast Off 3/4). Ends in a tidal wave.
You can also do Grand Follow Your Neighbor and Spread.

Galaxy Formation: A Galaxy is composed of a center box and an outside diamond.

Galaxy Circulate
From a galaxy: Each dancer moves forward one spot along the circulate path shown below.

Interlocked Diamond Formation: Two adjacent diamonds in which the very centers work with the furthest other 3 dancers.

Interlocked Diamond Circulate
From interlocked diamonds: Each dancer moves forward one spot along the circulate path shown below.

Cut the Interlocked Diamond
From interlocked diamonds: The points Cut the Diamond, while the centers Interlocked Diamond Circulate.

Flip the Interlocked Diamond
From interlocked diamonds: The points Flip the Diamond, while the centers Interlocked Diamond Circulate.

From dancers facing directly or on an angle: Like a Pass Thru, except the dancers don't have to be facing directly. Each dancer finishes on the other dancer's starting spot, facing opposite the way that dancer was facing.

Linear Action
From quarter or three-quarter tag, wave between parallel mini-waves, quarter or three-quarter line, or two-faced line between parallel mini-waves: All Hinge. Centers Box Circulate 1 1/2, as outsides Trade. Those who meet Cast Off 3/4, as others move up (as in Hourglass Circulate) to form parallel waves or lines.

Magic Column Formation/Concept
A Magic Column consists of the ends of one column and the centers of the other column. The dancers act as though they were in a column together, beginning and ending on those four spots.
Do the call as usual, but if you move from end to center or center to end, follow the Magic Column Circulate path. Note that a single magic column is neither right- nor left-handed. You must follow the Magic traffic pattern, and perform any action using the hand appropriate to your position at that point in the call.

Magic Column Circulate
From magic columns: Each dancer moves forward along one of the two circulate paths shown below:
If an end and a center are facing each other, they pass using the end's inside shoulder (the center dancer moves first). This takes the place of the right-shoulder rule. So Magic Column Circulate 1 1/2 would end like so:
Teaching Hint: You can point out that the ends are holding opposite hands from the centers--e.g., the ends have right hands joined, and the centers have left hands joined.
If you leave the circulate path (e.g., in Magic Column Transfer, shown below), just finish the call as usual. In this example, the ending wave is left-handed because the centers have lefts before the final Extend:
In the case of Magic Column Walk and Dodge, the rules are the same: Those who are doing the Walk follow the circulate path, and those doing the Dodge (and thus leaving the circulate path) just slide sideways as usual:
Note: Magic column calls are only permitted where complete magic columns exist. It would be improper, for example, to call "Magic Walk and Dodge" from an inverted box in isolation.
