Allemande Alphabet


Allemande Alphabet


Modern square dance - general


Allan Brozek, Oxford, CT: "Charles Crabbe Thomas, from Woodbury, NJ, was the publisher of American Squares during the magazine's early years. Most likely, some of these alphabet calls were made up by Charlie so that an edition of the magazine could feature The Allemande Alphabet. I assume Cct is the way Charlie wrote his initials."

Dick Pasvolsky wrote a series of columns about the allemande alphabet for The American Dance Circle. They provide additional background information on some of the figures, along with descriptions of how the breaks might be incorporated into a dance.
