New Squares - video and web links
One website that attempts to keep track of these kinds of square dances is here.
An excellent introduction to this scene is the five-minute documentary created by Doug Plummer, a profile of the Seattle Subversive Square Dance Society. Another video uses Dare To Be Square West in 2013 as a way to explore the expanding dance scene up and down the West Coast. Similarly, but with no video, you may enjoy a well-written and evocative story about the square dance revival in Knoxville, TN.
Jim Saxe notes: A search on YouTube will also turn up a number of videos of square dancing at Portland's annual Old-Time Music Gathering. (For searching purposes, note that video titles and descriptions might or might not include the word "Music" between "Old-Time" and "Gathering" and that they might have "Old Time" or "Oldtime" instead of "Old-Time".)
