Square Dance History Project
The rich story of North American square dance finally has a home in the digital age.

Square Dancing at the Maryland Line Fire Hall, 1970's

This exhibit features an article from Country Dance and Song magazine, audio files and video all relating to square dancing in a rural town (Maryland Line, MD) in the 1970's. For caller Bob Dalsemer, the Maryland Line square dances were his introduction to old time traditional square dancing and inspired him to seek out other such dances in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina.
