What Good is a Frequency Count?
- For Dancers
If you're new to a level, a frequency count can help you decide which calls and concepts to study.
Concentrate on learning those calls and concepts that are used the most often.
If you're planning to attend one of my dances at a particular level, you could scan the frequency count for that level to
make sure that you know how to do all the calls that I call. This is especially true at C4, since different callers tend to use different calls.
- For Callers
If you're teaching a class, a frequency count could be used to help determine your teaching order.
Making a frequency count of your own material allows you to determine which calls you neglect to use, and which calls
you overuse. Sometimes the results aren't obvious.
