From Generalized Columns of 4 (usually a 1/4 Box or Magic Columns) or other applicable formations.

Notes:

  • Sometimes in the 'heat of battle', the In-Facing Centers simply Jaywalk [C1] (instead of outside hand Diagonal Pull By).
  • The dancer's verbal response to Make Magic is 'Poof!' Dancers who Pass Thru or Jaywalk should point at each other ('point & poof').
  • If all Centers are facing in, the conventional traffic pattern is to have the Centers do a Cross Trail Thru [A1] (Pass Thru & Half Sashay).
  • Make Magic is a Those Who Can movement. I.e., Out-Facing Centers do not move unless they are directly facing an Outside dancer; likewise, In-Facing Ends do not move unless they are directly facing an Inside dancer.
