Features Common to Each Book 

  • Preamble with Dancing and Studying Hints
  • Each call or concept entry includes the name of the original author and date written (if known)
  • Calls are explained in a conceptual manner, not just a simple definition
  • Numerous diagrams and examples
  • Many definitions of related calls on other levels
  • Proofread by numerous top callers and dancers


  • We wrote the kind of book that we wanted when we were learning these levels. At that time we were hungry for information, so our book contains many notes, hints, and side comments.
  • Our books are kept up-to-date. Square Dance Lists are re-evaluated and slightly modified every two or three years. These changes are reflected in our books. If a new call is added or deleted from a list, the date of addition or deletion is mentioned in the header entry for the call. Deleted calls are retained in the book for a few years, since some callers continue to call them, or you may hear them on old tapes.
