All of the listed calls have been learned by last year's new dancers (Good Work!)

Our 2018 class started September 11, 2018.
Calls which have been marked have been introduced to our 2018 new dancers.
As of now, that's all of Mainstream and we have started introducing the Plus calls.

** Growing pains: Taminations no longer supports Internet Explorer; use a different
browser if you want those links to work. Also, MS Edge seems to have problems with
the animated GIFs used on this site - Chrome seems not to have either problem!
