Nils Fredland – Four Square


Nils Fredland – Four Square


Northern / Prompt & Patter


Nils Fredland calls a contemporary composition as part of the "Square Dance" Retrospective session at the annual Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend in Durham, NH. The musicians are Old New England (Bob McQuillen piano; Jane Orzechowski, fiddle; and Deanna Stiles, flute); the tune is Mrs. Frasier's.

The dance was choreographed by Ron Buchanan. In his introduction to the dance, Nils Fredland commented, "He has a mind like few other choreographers out there. I feel like this captures some of the interest and complexity of the modern square movement. it's phrased, which appeals to contra dancers."

Complete instructions for the dance will be found in the RPDLW 2013 Syllabus, which will be online (starting in January 2014) here.
