Square Dance attendance & new calls


This slide contains two graphs, part of a presentation by Guy Steele on "The Mathematics of Square Dance Singing Calls," complete with dancers from MIT's Tech Squares group demonstrating figures. You can watch Part I of Steele's talk here.

The first graph shows the rise and fall of attendance at the National Square Dance Convention, which peaked in the 1976 Bicentennial year. The second graph shows the number of new calls entering the square dance vocabulary each year. CALLERLAB was established in 1971, in part to address the proliferation of calls, and you can see how the number begins to drop off as the CALLERLAB system becomes more widely adopted.
