Title

Square Dance History Pageant, part 2 - Cheyenne Mountain Dancers, 1976

Subject

Transitional/Western 1940s

Description

The 25th annual National Square Dance Convention took place in 1976, the year of the United State Bicentennial Celebration. A historical pageant at the convention features a series of dances illustrating American social dance through time, with a particular focus on squares. After a series of earlier historical dances (see related item), the "Cheyenne Mountain Dancers" performed.

Actually, this was the Calico & Boots dance team from Boulder, Colorado, portraying the Cheyenne Mountain Dancers. The caller is Gib Gilbert. You'll see that the editors of this footage mixed audio and video without necessarily making sure that the two went together!
