Square Dance
Jim Saxe

Traditional square dance is:

  • A dance form based on a fairly small number of easy-to-learn figures that can be put together in countless ways to provide decades of enjoyment.
  • An amusement park ride that eight (usually) dancers make for themselves and each other, powered by the musical energy of a live band.
  • Friendship set to music.

In this session, caller Jim Saxe will introduce the basic moves and lead a series of dances chosen for the enjoyment of beginners and old hands alike.
