Notes:

• From a Squared Set, the designated dancers move into the middle, start the call, and finish with the inactive dancers.
• Callers sometimes use helper words such as 'Start A' or 'Begin A' when calling Split Square Chain Thru (e.g., Heads Start A Split Square Chain Thru). Technically, these extra words are not required. (Heads Split Square Chain Thru is sufficient).
