This month’s call of the month is Turn and Deal.
From a general line: As one smooth motion, all Half Tag, then turn individually another quarter in the same direction you turned to start the Half Tag. This call is considered to have a single part; it cannot be fractionalized.
How I like to think of this call is first, do a half tag, then as if you could, roll. The last part of a half tag is to step forward and make a wave, so you can’t actually roll. But if you could, you would turn in the same direction you started turning when you started the half tag. Regardless of where you start this call, you will always end facing the opposite wall then you started facing.
Here’s how it looks from the standard formation:
