We provide an answer to the long-standing problem of mixing quantum and classical dynamics within a single formalism. The construction is based on -mechanical derivation of quantum and classical dynamics from the representation theory of the Heisenberg group. To achieve a quantum-classical mixing we take the product of two copies of the Heisenberg group which represent two different Planck's constants. In comparison with earlier guesses our answer contains an extra term of analytical nature, which was not obtained before in purely algebraic setup.
