Singing Call Figures for the Community Dance Program
Diese Figuren sind ausgelegt für "normale" Singing Call Musiken mit 64 Schritten je Durchspiel. In der Kopfzeile ist angegeben, ob der Corner oder die Right Hand Lady zum neuen Partner wird, und das "höchste" Basic nach der CDP-Liste.
Die meisten dieser Figuren passen auch für die A-B-C-Methode
These figures are suitable for "standard" singing call music with 64 beats per sequence. The headline shows whether the Corner or the Right Hand Lady will become the new partner, and the "highest" basic according to the CDP-List.
Most of these figures fit the A-B-C-Method as well.
Begriffe in [eckigen Klammern] sind austauschbar, z.B. [Heads] gegen [Sides].
Calls in (runden Klammern) können weggelassen werden, wenn die Musik "wegläuft".
Terms in [square brackets] are exchangeable, e.g. [Heads] against [Sides].
Calls in (round brackets) may be omitted, if the music is "too far ahead".
Formatiert für eine Fensterbreite von 800 Pixeln. Formatted for a window of 800 pixels width.
Eigentlich wollte ich diese Sammlung für 1,50 € verkaufen. Aber es hat keinen Zweck, hinter solchen Beträgen herzulaufen. Wenn Du diese Figuren kopierst und benutzst, dann schuldest Du mir einen Kaffee, falls wir uns treffen. OK?
In der gedruckten Fassung gibt es allerdings auch deutsche Tanzrufe und einige zusätzliche Kommentare. Siehe Bücher und Broschüren
I intended to sell this compilation for $ 1,50. But there is no use in hunting for such sums in the Internet. However, if you copy and use these figures, and we meet somewhere, you owe me a cup of coffee. OK?
However, in the printed version there are a few additional comments given. See Books and booklets

Breaks
Die folgenden Breaks sind erprobte gängige Abläufe, die jeder Caller kennt. Manchmal will aber jemand Square Dance anleiten, ohne regelmäßig in einer entsprechenden Gruppe zu tanzen. Ich rate davon ab, kann es aber nicht verhindern. Darum will ich für solche Fälle wenigstens eine verläßliche Anleitung bieten. The following breaks are well known and commonly used. But there are people who want to teach square dancing without regularly dancing in such a group. I would discourage such a practice, but cannot hinder it. Therefore I thought it best to offer a reliable instruction, just in case.
