  • Sometimes in the 'heat of battle', the In-Facing Centers simply Jaywalk [C1] (instead of outside hand Diagonal Pull By). EN: 40
  • The dancer's verbal response to Make Magic is 'Poof!' Dancers who Pass Thru or Jaywalk should point at each other ('point & poof'). EN: 50
  • 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). EN: 60
    Hvis alle 4 Centers er infacing laver de en Cross Trail Thru [A1] (Pass Thru & Half Sashay). DK: 60
  • 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. EN: 70
    Make Magic er et Those Who Can Call - dvs. Out-Facing Centers kan ikke gå hvis de ikke er direkte ansigt til ansigt med en Outside danser; ligeledes kan In-Facing Ends ikke gå undtagen de er direkte ansigt til ansigt med en Inside danser. DK: 70
