What could be more American than a good old-fashioned square dance? Picture it: women in ruffled skirts and men in bolo ties, standing in a barn among bales of hay waiting for the caller, as he picks up his fiddle and starts to play “Pink Cadillac?” Pink Cadillac? They don’t do Turkey in the Straw anymore. Western square dancing has gone modern. Instead of a fiddle, the caller brings a modern sound system which may include a computer with songs already downloaded. Today’s square dance music ranges from country and western to oldies and modern rock, Top 40, gospel, Broadway show tunes and even opera melodies and rap songs. And you don’t have to wear the old fashioned dance clothing. At a Western square dance today, you can find people in all kinds of attire, including blue jeans and sneakers. Square dancing offers safe exercise and tones the whole body, while you have fun. For more information: call Velma at 614-837-6974 or go to www.OrbitingSquares.com.
