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…..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
