There are many calls for which we have well known "standard" applications, and we have even documented many of them in the Standard Applications documents. "Standard", however, does not mean "easier" — it really means "more common". There are many infrequently used applications that are not hard, they're just infrequent. Because they're infrequent, dancers bobble when they hear them, so we avoid them, so they stay infrequent: vicious circle. If you are interested in enriching your dancers' experience with usages that are not hard, just infrequently used, this session is for you.

The systems described are Multi-Cycle, Condensed Teaching Order, Sustainable Square Dance, The NEST, and General Dance Program.
