Title

American Square Dance - Coronet Films, 1947

Description

This 1947 instructional film, produced by Coronet Films, was created in collaboration with the Chicago Parks District. (Note that Lloyd Shaw's Cheyenne Mountain Dancers performed in Chicago in 1939 on their return home from their first trip east. Shaw also made a presentation to American Association for Health, Physicial Education, and Recreation at that time, and he was requested to offer a workshop; Chicago played an important role in supporting square dance education in those early years.)

This video carefully explains, with young dancers, the various positions in a four-couple square, the swing, allemande left, right and left through, ladies chain, the southern/western docey-doe, and concludes with a short version of Take a Little Peek.
