7 Original Choreography Get Outs For Modern Square Dance Callers

Sometimes square dance callers need outside stimuli to inspire them to write and create new and outside ideas when it comes to innovating new choreographic ideas. Additionally, using choreographic checkers or revamping old ideas are great ways to create choreography, however, the critical bedrock of knowing what all the dancers will enjoy most is the most basic and common ground to work from. As long as we know and keep focused on this approach, then all choreography at all dances will be stronger, more interesting, and better for the activity on a broader scope both nationally and universally!
