I agree with eventerdrew - anything extended or collected and any sort of leg yields are movements that are far more advanced than Training Level Dressage.
Rhythm, Straitness, Relaxation, Balance, Suppleness are far more important things to work on.
I agree with 20 meter circles, serpentines, change of diagonals. Walk, trot, canter movements during these patterns - all the while focusing on Rhythm, Straitness, Relaxation, Balance and Suppleness.
What could even add spice to it - is make your finale a Kurr's aka Musical Freestyle. The rules are, while doing Training Level Dressage Movements.
Have a competition to see who can come up with the neatest freestyle.
