Class Notes - Jim Mayo, 1963

Description

Unlike traditional square dance, modern SD is based on a series of classes that teach the basic figures. As the activity has increased its vocabulary of figures, the number of suggested classes has grown over the years, from six to 30 or more weeks.

In addition to the instruction at classes, some teachers have given their students handouts with tips to think about after class. This is a series from caller Jim Mayo, handed out to a class in 1963,  Each page is a handout that was given in that week's class. Together, they provide useful background information about modern square dancing at that time.

Dancers are the intended audience for these notes. Viewers interested in Mayo's thoughts for callers will enjoy the first Related item, Calling for Modern Square Dancing. Chapters cover such topics as music and the calls, choreography, timing, programming, teaching, equipment, and much more.
