This film was shot at the Fall Berkshires C4 Weekend in Lenox, MA on Oct. 22, 2011. It contains dance sequences and interviews.
This footage was gathered as part of an effort (www.SquareDanceHistory.org) to document and illustrate different types of modern square dancing, as well as different regional styles of traditional squares.
In Modern Western Square Dancing the dancers learn a vocabulary (69 calls for Mainstream, over 1000 for C4) but do not memorize a dance pattern. Instead the caller puts the calls together in an ever changing order and the dancers respond in real time. While the dancers were familiar with the vocabulary, they had never heard the particular sequences of calls before, and did not know what was going to be called.
