Starting with A-1, the term concept is used to mean something that, rather than being a call by itself, directs the dancers to modify the meaning of another call.

A-1 introduces two such concepts:

  • As Couples, which means that each couple is to act as one unit in dancing the specified call.
  • Any Hand, which allows calls that normally start with the right hand to be done from additional formations.
