Basic & Mainstream Figuren

Stand: Oktober 2015

CALLERLAB recommends that the Basic and Mainstream Program, calls 1-68, be taught in twenty-two sessions of two hours each (total 58 hours). Callerlab also recommends that calls be taught from more than a single position (formation and arrangement) and that styling and timing be included as a part of the teaching program. Calls in italics may be deffered until later in teaching sequence.

Die mit *kursiv gekennzeichneten Figuren werden in der Regel später gelehrt, wenn die erforderlichen Voraussetzungen gegeben sind. Siehe auch Trends.
