Freestyle Square Dancing

"Promenade if ya care to..."

Removed from the harsh restrictions imposed by the colorful but autocratic "caller", the American square dance could rid itself of that troublesome rube-robot image that the young'uns today just don't cotton-to.

Keep the martinet on the hay-bale for tradition's sake but with the understanding that he will be issuing no more than an occasional suggestion.

Rather than "grab yer gal and promenade all" you could, say, grab *two* gals...or a guy...and bodytalk to where the fiddles take you.

       Costumes? Like big straw hats and checkered shirts? Awright!

       'Freestyle' and 'Square'. Interesting concept.

       PeterSealy, wonderful link, indeed! These fellas' gear makes the turquoise steer-head bolo tie seem an accessory of subtle elegance.

       This has to be one of the greatest titles ever.

       [PeterSealy]: While the Cotswold Morris (as shown in your link) is traditionally all-male, Cumbrian Morris has always been a mixed-gender custom. The costumes worn in the Cumbrian variant are different, particularly the shoes which are more like clogs than the pumps worn by the Cotswold sides.

       Your reference to clogs, angel, triggers flashbacks of "clogging", the rural American variant of that Riverdance business but, again, with the do-si-do attire. Very painful.

       A croissant for the title alone. Maybe the square aspect could be under the freestyle option and the participants could dance in a circle or a pentagon shape.

       Hey, Mr. K., if you take this to the pentagon, you'd better include the Freestyle Sidestepping style. Otherwise, it won't fly. Maybe in Peoria.
