Basic & Mainstream Figuren

Stand: Oktober 2021

CALLERLAB recommends that the Basic Program, calls 1-48, be taught not less than 44 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 . Some of these calls has been indicated with an *asterisk.

Die mit kursiv gekennzeichneten Figuren werden in der Regel später gelehrt, wenn die erforderlichen Voraussetzungen gegeben sind. Sie sind hier zusätzlich  mit einem Stern  * gekennzeichnet. Siehe auch Trends.
