CALLERLAB created an adhoc committee to develop an easier concept to help new dancers enter the dance clubs while still learning.  The Committee developed a twelve lesson plan that will emphasize teaching the most utilized calls from the Basic and Mainstream Programs allowing new dancers to begin dancing at their clubs.  Once the first twelve lessons are accomplished, dancers may start attending club dances while they continue their lessons to learn the remaining Basic and Mainstream calls.

The History Committee converted many years of convention recordings from cassette tapes to MP3's.  The Home Office is in the process of downloading these recordings to You Tube for members historical information.  In addition, the Home Office is downloading various video recordings of convention sessions and events.  This is an ongoing process as there are several hundred files to download.  Please check back periodically to see what new files have been downloaded. If you are searching for a specific interest session topic within You Tube, we suggest you type "CALLERLAB" as the first word and then type what you are searching for second.

CALLERLAB Foundation for the Preservation and Promotion of Square Dancing Minimize

In the late 1980's, the CALLERLAB Board Of Governors took action to create a foundation which would be dedicated to the preservation and promotion of square dancing. The plan was for this foundation to provide a way for those who wished to make a tax-deductible donation to help in this effort. The CALLERLAB Foundation for the Preservation and Promotion of Square Dancing was formed in 1992 and is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.

The Foundation website ( includes history, mission, and goals of the Foundation. It provides information about the accomplishments and plans for future activities. Also included is information regarding the Foundation-sponsored Education Grants. Please take a look at:


Licensed Callers Minimize

The responsibility of having proper USA music licensing falls on each club as the sponsor of dance events.   See attached report to view a list of CALLERLAB members who have obtained BMI/ASCAP licensing to protect the clubs they call for.  If you club has contracted one of the listed callers, you will have proper licensing for events prior to April 1, 2015.  If your club has contracted a caller whose name does not appear on this list, you may wish to ask for a copy of their license or contact CALLERLAB's Home Office to help clarify the situation.
