Cheyenne Mountain revivals
The Colorado Rocky Mountain Dancers formed in 1999 to represent Lloyd Shaw's Cheyenne Mountain Dancers in a historical pageant to be presented at the 50th National Square Dance Convention. The pageant was called off, but the dance group continued. This demonstration piece was created to illustrate the Lloyd Shaw style of dancing and choreography of the Cheyenne Mountain Dancers, and was recorded at the 2007 CALLERLAB convention.
This video shows the Colorado Rocky Mountain Dancers dancing to a recording of Lloyd "Pappy" Shaw calling. This is the same recording used by the Cheyenne Mountain Dancers in the silent black and white footage. The calls are designed to showcase a series of different figures. This demonstration of historical dances was recorded at the 2007 CALLERLAB convention in Colorado Springs, CO and edited by Cal Campbell.
This demonstration number is for eight couples forming a double square, one inside the other. The High Country Squares club hails from Pagosa Springs, in southwestern Colorado. The caller is Todd Albright. The styling of the group and the choreographic variety shows a Lloyd Shaw influence.
An interview with High Country Dancers, including choreographer Kira Heartsong, who was part of the Lloyd Shaw Fellowship that emerged after his death. This footage includes some square dances and aerial moves starting about halfway through.
