18. PEEL THE TOP

Starting formation: box circulate or Z-Formation.
The lead dancers Peel Off as the trailing dancers step straight forward and take adjacent hands; everyone then does a Fan the Top.
Styling: Lead dancers have arms in natural dance position and adjust hands to appropriate position for next call. It is important that dancers move slightly forward before starting the "peeling" motion. Trailing dancers use hands up position and styling as described in the basic Swing Thru.
Timing: 6

19. DIAMOND CIRCULATE

Starting formation:Any Diamond.
Each dancer moves forward to the next position in his diamond, changing his original facing direction one-quarter (90) toward the center of the diamond. Points become centers, and vice versa. If the call is directed to facing diamonds, all must pass right shoulders.
Styling: It is important that dancers maintain diamond formation as they move diagonally from one position to the next. Center dancers of diamond blend into hands up position as in ocean wave. Dancers at the points maintain arms in natural dance position. Ladies may utilize skirt work.
Timing: 3

20. SINGLE CIRCLE TO A WAVE

Starting formation: Facing dancers.
Facing dancers join both hands with each other and Circle Left halfway. Without stopping, they drop hands with each other and individually Veer Left, blending into a right-hand mini-wave. If the caller directs "Single Circle 3/4 to a Wave", facing dancers join both hands with each other and Circle Left 3/4, then continue to execute the rest of the call as above.
Styling: In circling, the two dancers are slightly offset to the left so that their dance partner in the circle is more to their right than in front of them. Use smooth dance step, not buzz. When joining hands for circle, gents turn palms up, ladies palms down. Arms are bent comfortably at the elbows. Exert a small amount of pressure while circling. Blend into a hands up ocean wave position.
Timing: 4

21. TRADE THE WAVE
Starting formation: Any four-dancer ocean wave.
Dancers facing the same direction in the wave Trade with each other. Right-hand waves become left-hand waves and vice versa. Ends of the wave become centers and vice versa.
Styling: As in any trade, dancers first step slightly forward to clear the wave before turning toward dancer with whom they are trading. Assume hands up position in basic ocean wave styling. Timing: 6

22. FLIP THE DIAMOND
Starting formation: Any Diamond.
The centers of the diamond do a Diamond Circulate to the next position in their diamond, while the points Run ("Flip" 180) into the nearest center position and join hands to become the centers of the forming wave or line. When "flipping" a facing diamond, the points always take the inside path, and the centers always take the outside path.
Styling: From a normal diamond formation, all dancers blend into hands up position as required for ocean wave basic. If the starting formation is a facing diamond, all dancers blend into a couple handhold.
Timing: 3

23. GRAND SWING THRU
Starting formation: Tidal Wave, Ocean Wave of Six Dancers.
Those who can turn by the right one-half (180), then those who can turn by the left one-half (180). If "right" is not specified preceding the command to Grand Swing Thru, it is understood to be a right-handed Grand Swing Thru. If Grand Left Swing Thru is required, it must be specifically directed - "Grand Left Swing Thru", in which case, those who can turn by the left one-half (180), then those who can turn by the right one-half (180).
Styling: Styling is specifically the same as described for the basic swing thru.
Timing: 6
