Teaching Basic
1989 CALLERLAB Convention, Nashville, TN Teaching Basic Larry Letson, Moderator with Gregg Anderson, Rod Blaylock & Bob Poyner This first of two teaching sessions continues to show the importance that is placed on proper teaching by CALLERLAB. It is critical to the survival of square dancing that we improve our teaching abilities. What better emphasis than on the teaching of the Basic Program! The need not to shortcut teaching time. the need to teach in accordance with the correct definition and the need to show proper timing and styling will all be included.
Teaching - Square Dance Not Scrambling
2009 CALLERLAB Convention, Kansas City, MO Teaching - Square Dance Not Scrambling Moderator, Jim Mayo and Panelist Jerry Junck - In our transition from the early days of MWSD to the complexity we have today the feel of dancing has suffered. This session will review some of the smoothness, accuracy and styling points that we used to teach. Today the number of calls and the complex ways they are used makes us leave those "dancing" subjects out of too-short classes. They can still be covered in workshops and at club nights. This session will discuss and demonstrate some of these. The panel will provide samples of this type calling for you to experience.
Teaching - Successful Dancing Habits
2012 CALLERLAB Convention, Nashville, TN Successful Dancing Habits Moderator, Ed Foote and Panelists, Jerry Junck and Chris Pinkham - The panel will discuss and present dance styling and suggestions to help improve dancers skills.
