Take a Little Peek


Take a Little Peek


Southern / Appalachian / Four-couple squares


Northwestern Pennsylvania version of Take a Little Peek, usually considered a southern Appalachian dance figure. Called and posted by Dan Freligh (aka RubberCrutches). The tune is Boil that Cabbage Down. Caller Al Brozek comments, "Notice how the men twirl each lady in the R & L Grand. That is how it was done back in the 50s here in CT."

Careful viewers will notice that the the videos were taped over many different sessions, as evidenced by the clothes on the dancers. You'll also notice that the same couples dance in the same squares in the same place in the hall.

The caller has a YouTube channel with many other dances. Click here for more information about this dance series.
