In square dancing, the basic calls are in everything else.
Square dancing can be called at many speeds and many levels, which go beyond Basic and Mainstream. But some of the best callers are renowned for their amazing abilities to excite and dazzle with the simplest calls. And dance competitions (which are only held in fun at some festivals) are actually always called at the Mainstream level.
We're so lucky to have the talents of our fantastic caller, Bob Butler, who not only teaches the call definitions to his new dancers but also how to move on the floor. When you dance for him you learn how to hear and respond to his voice, so that you can execute his calls on the fly. The whole fun of square dancing is the excitement of performing calls you can't predict. And, nobody can predict our surprising caller!
