Mainstream
• ‘Shoot the Star’ with normal turn is like a turn thru from an ocean wave,
which also stops the rotation of a Thar.

## ‘Shoot the Star’ Variants

• Shoot the Star, Go Forward $n$ (where $\,n = 1,2,3,...\,$)
After the arm turn and step thru, do $\,n\,$ pull bys (as in a right and left grand),
followed by whatever is called next.
• Shoot the Star Full Around (or All the Way Around)
Do a 360° arm turn (instead of an arm turn 1/2), then step thru.
