Square Dance


Notes

In the days before World War II, Square Dances were one of the main social gatherings for rural Americans. At these community dances, Western swing and uptempo traditional country were often played -- it was all designed to get the patrons dancing. Square dancing survived as a nostalgic form, and the music that was played at these dances was essentially the same as before, yet like its jazz equivalent, Dixieland, it was devoid of any innovation -- it was a stylistic exercise.
