More information about square dancing:
These lists come from various sources. Up to C3B, the lists are maintained by Callerlab, the International Square Dance Caller Association.
The C3X and C4 lists are maintained by various C4 callers and dancers. In this project, there are 3 ways of indicating a C3X or C4 call level.
C3X indicates calls not on any Callerlab list but commonly called at C3 dances.
C3X+ indicates calls that were once on a C3X list but have been deleted.
C4A indicates calls that will be heard at easy C4 dances.
C4B indicates calls that will be heard at hard C4 dances.
Where a call appears in brackets, such as [C4A], this means the call is not on any of Clark Baker's lists, so we show the placement on Vic Ceder's lists instead.
The C4 Unified List has six letters BCJLRW which indicate that the following callers use this call at C4 dances:B = Clark Baker
The Deprecated or Ice Cold list contains calls that should never be heard at C4 dances, but since they were at one time on some list, they ought to be noted. These calls have six letters EFGUZX that indicate why the call is on this list:E = Vic Ceder's rarely used call list
