Tony Parkes 2 - Quadrilles and Visiting Couple Squares

Subject

General - Dance and Culture

Description

In this interview, caller Tony Parkes describes the basic structure of quadrilles, the 19th century dance form that set the pattern for traditional New England squares, and contrasts that with visiting couple squares. In a typical quadrille, head couples interact often with each other (and the same for sides with each other). In a visiting square, couple 1 leads out to the right and does something with couple 2, then moves on to the 3rd couple.
