Square dancing is easy to confuse with line dancing.
The difference is that square dancing happens in a square!
The way that works is that 8 dancers form 4 couples
and each couple is positioned on the corner of a visual
or imaginary square.

Square dances have existed at least since the 16th century
in England.

But are also known for a long time in many parts of Europe.
Square dancing also became a popular among people who colonized North America as European immigrants brought
along many parts of their culture.

“There is a bit of insanity in dancing
that does everybody a great deal of good.”

— Edwin Denby
