The Square Rotation Program (SQROT) can generate

  • 'Computer Cards' -- a printed slip is given to each couple at the dance.

    • The cards are printed, perhaps laminated, and then used at the dance.
    • One card per couple.
    • Before each tip, the caller announces the number of couples, and the tip number. Each card-holder then looks at their card to determine their assigned square.
  • A 'Static' Rotation -- a fixed rotation for a fixed number of couples and number of tips.

    • A Static Rotation is generated before the dance.
    • Static rotations are only used at dances or weekends where the number of couples and number of tips is known in advance.
    • Various hardcopy printouts of the rotation can be generated and brought to the dance.
  • A 'Dynamic' Rotation -- a computer at the dance generates a rotation prior to each tip.

    • The most versatile option.
    • A computer is required at the dance.
    • As each couple arrives at the dance, their couple name is added to the list of couples.
    • Prior to each tip, the computer generates a rotation, and each couple looks at the computer display to determine their assigned square.
    • Couples may arrive or leave the dance without upsetting the rotation. However, each couple must check-in or check-out with the person running the rotation.
    • Couples may also request to sitout for specific tips.
