Notes:

• 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix always starts with the Right hand! From Parallel L-H Waves, only the Centers can do the call. In our opinion, the caller should be explicit and say Centers 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix.
• It is generally accepted that those starting the call must be in a Mini-Wave, not facing dancers. Most callers believe it is illegal to call 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix from a setup such as a Single Eight Chain Thru.
