DARE TO BE SQUARE 2008 - Portland, Oregon - Larry Edelman
These are recordings of the workshops and dances edited into mp3 files. Included are dances and their walkthroughs, Larry's talks on square dance history, philosophy, practical group calling sessions, and PDFs containing transcriptions of some calls and other notes. The notes will eventually be linked to the relevant mp3s, or so goes the plan. The "talks" and the walkthroughs are goldmines for learning how to organize and pace the teaching of your squares. You can call along with Larry to get some insight into the timing of your own calls. Also see DTBS 2009 and Bob Dalsemer's walkthroughs and calling on video. You can actually script some of your own teaching by listening to Bob's and Larry's walkthroughs.
