I like "Grand Twirl." If you want something with a similar mouthfeel to the
original, though, you could try "Daisy Twirl"?

The Caller’s Box has 64 dances so far, and I just wrote
another… I would have thought that was enough. Maybe not.
They give “As a couple, California Twirl” but I am not too
keen on that.

Does this figure actually need a name? It's rare enough that I would just
describe what the dancers do, and prompt it with a shortened version of
those words ("make an arch, come back up" or something)
I understand that some people object to the use of the word
Dixie (I don’t necessarily agree, but please let’s not get into that now).
I am currently using “Grand Twirl” as an alternative name
for a Dixie Twirl, since “Grand” generally implies “everyone” and the move
applies to all four dancers in the line.
Has anyone come up with a better term?
