MAINSTREAM MODULES

The following document contains many Basic/Mainstream modules. Some I originally developed for class and dances and others I gathered from many sources including The Callers Board, American Square Dance Magazine, Callers Notes, Record Jackets, Several Manuals and just plain stolen from another caller when I was dancing to him/her. Some can be used in singing calls, some are for workshops. The heading "STANDARD FORMATION" is the formation that the majority of dancers can be reasonably expected to execute that call from successfully. That information was obtained from a Callerlab document on calls and formations.

NOTE: The abbreviations used are those used by the Callers Angels Computer Program. A list is presented on another page at this web site. In general, the letters were derived from the first letter of each word of the call. Prefixes to the call are the dancer designators and are separated from the call by a space.

I have not sorted these yet and a lot are NOT from the STANDARD FORMATION so you'll just have to browse.
