Sample Sequence

There are 49 Basic Movements in Square Dancing and below is the List. I have finished making animations to all 49 basics and I completed in replacing Japanese explanations with Callerlab definitions(Mar.18, 1998), so I will move on to Mainstream animations.
All the animations have endless loop and if it is not moving, please try reloading.
