Do the last 1/2 of Mix, in Tandem. 2. Mix, but since this is a 2-part call, the last part is done only 1/2. 2.1. Centers Cross Run. 2.2. 1/2 of New Centers Trade. Note: The phrase "Do the last 3/4" causes the call phrase that follows to have 3 parts. Those parts are: 1. Centers, Tandem, Cross Run. (This is the last 1/2 of Mix, done in Tandem, as a result of applying the Echo concept to the call Mix.) 2. Centers Cross Run. 3. New Centers Trade. Since the fraction 5/6 is applied to the resulting 3-part call as described above, the 3rd part is split into 2 sub-parts, and only the first 1/2 of New Centers Trade is done. Dance Action: 1. Tandem, Centers Trade; 2. Centers Cross Run; 3. New Centers Hinge.
