Title

Bob Dalsemer 1: Structure of Dance Programs in Traditional Series

Description

Caller Bob Dalsemer describes his experiences in traditional dance communities. Each community may have just a few break figures that appear in all dances, which means that callers can program a lot of dances in an evening without much instruction. He contrasts that with the squares called in contemporary contra dance communities, for example, where each dance will have a different main figure and break figure, which requires much more teaching time.
