Please refer others who may be interested in this material to this site rather than emailing a PDF.  The down load count gives me a sense of interest in the material and the download is the most current version.

  • “Introduction to Asymmetric Choreography” – I presented this course on 6/18/2022 on Don Beck’s caller training Zoom series.  PDF version of slide deck is available for download below.  The 1-hour session was recorded.  See it here:
  • I have a new paper “Social Square Dance (SSD) Standard Application” (May 2022).  The Callerlab SSD Lesson Plans state that the document demonstrates SSD Standard Applications.  However, for those of us teaching SSD we need a summarized version.  This document is the summary material from those lesson plans.
  • I have put out two new papers (May 2020) due to time at home with no dances.  Navigation & Get-Outs For Sight Callers (30 pages) and Modules for Unusual Formations (5 pages) contains material I have learned over the last 15 years working on get-outs.
  • The general use of SEPARATE falls way below its potential.  A new short paper, “Fun with Separate”, (March 2020) gives a number of interesting uses of SEPARATE in a Basic context although they could be applied at any level.
  • A new paper July 2019 (Writing Singing Calls) explains in some detail how I write interesting singing call figures.  The paper explains the process and includes five example sessions which generate 24 new figures
