Title

Square Dance, Raton, NM

Description

Outdoor square dance. Calls include "lady round the lady and the gent follow, lady round the gent and the gent don't go." The tune is Waggoner, sometimes called Tennessee Waggoner.

In the last few seconds of the clip, the soundtrack appears to be out of sync with the picture, as the set nearest the camera is doing "right and left through" and "ladies chain" while the caller continues to call "lady round the lady."
