The usual order of the programs is Basic, Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and Challenge. However, several variations of entry programs have been proposed. This chart gives a visual representation of the differences between several square Dance entry programs. The totals on the right indicate how many times a particular call has been included in one of the programs. The higher the number (and the darker the colour), the more popular the call is.
