The Definitions:


Callerlab®                                         http://www.callerlab.org


The various dance programs can be found on the Callerlab® website, choosing "For members" and "dance programs".  In the list on that page, you can find the definitions for the Basic/Mainstream Program and for the Plus Program.  You can also find definitions for other programs, charts showing how callers describe various formations, and a plethora of other information.


Also on that page, dancers might be interested in the conclusions of Callerlab’s® “Application Review Committee” (ARC).  [ARC History Document] As described by Callerlab®, this committee was formed “to review the proper or improper usage of square dance calls. The committee is composed of knowledgeable callers from all over the world who review written requests from callers and/or dancers and decide as to the proper or improper application of these calls.” It might be noted that there is no "enforcement power" to these decisions; callers are free to disagree and sometimes use that application of a call anyway.


The most detail-oriented dancers might also be interested in what Callerlab® considers the "Standard Applications" for the various moves.  [Basic/Mainstream Standard Applications, and Plus Standard Applications]


Other DBD Clubs and Programs:


Naturally, we feel that UNCONVENTIONAL SQUARES would be your best choice, providing the finest possible experience in Plus level DBD Square dancing.  Of course, dancing at more than one club is wonderful, so we list some other DBD programs.  (If you’d like your program listed, contact Joe Pryluck; contact info on home page.)
