KIRKUS REVIEW

The trend towards tripping the light fantastic in schools, social clubs and informal gatherings is here to stay claims Mr. Gowing of the Folkways Foundation in Peterborough, New Hampshire. This book was compiled to ""provide the 'whys, hows and wherefores' of American folk dancing"" for three major groups: beginners, accomplished enthusiasts and teachers-- leaders and callera. Familiarity with basic rhythms and movements is necessary for smooth square dancing, and they are discussed in detail. Traditional square dance tunes and calls are linked with their historic roots.
