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.

Left 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix [C3A]: Start with the L-H instead of the R-H.

1/4 (or 3/4) Cross [C4] (Lee Kopman 1970): Those who can Right Arm Turn 1/4 (or 3/4); those in a Line|Wave Centers Cross Run. This is the same as 2/3 of a 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix.

Grand 1/4 (or 3/4) Mix [C3A]: From R-H Columns (or other applicable formations). Those who can Right Arm Turn 1/4 (or 3/4); all Grand Mix. This is a 3-part call.
