Square Dance: Table of Contents

Square dancing is great for mind, body, and spirit!
Here are index cards to summarize each call.

Print each card (below).
No color printer?
Get color-printed copies at Amazon:
Cut each page close to the spine.
These retractable razor knives work well.
Cut out the cards.
Use a paper cutter or rotary cutter/quilting ruler/self-healing mat (my choice).
Tape/staple/glue onto 4" x 6" index cards.
(I prefer tape.)
Use different colors for
Basic 1/Basic 2/Mainstream
to easily differentiate the levels.
(The card color just peeks out
around the edges.)
