Welcome to the CALLERLAB Online Teaching Resource

Here you will find material to assist a modern square dance caller who is teaching new calls to dancers, or teaching new applications of a call to dancers.

This resource is being developed.  We are adding pages on a regular basis and still proofing choreography, text, and links.  Please let us know if you find errors.   (Email CAC Chair: dwelch@eastlink.ca)

Click on the link for the CALLERLAB program that contains the call.

Then click on the link for the desired type of information about the call.
