You are currently viewing Square Dancing Day

Square Dancing Day is celebrated every year on November 29.

Square dancing is easy to confuse with line dancing.
The difference is that square dancing happens… 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
