Square Dance History Project

The Square Dance History Project is dedicated to documenting the history of square dance in North America. Powered by Omeka, this website is home to over 1,400 items related to the popular dance, including past issues of Grand Square magazine, filmed dance choreography, newspaper clippings, album covers, interviews with contemporary square dance "callers," and poetry. Visitors can browse the collection by subject or by region of the country. For those less familiar with the dance form, the website includes material about all types of square dance, including Spanish Colonial dances in the Southwest, Quebecois dances in Canada, and Irish set dances. The site also features 13 online exhibits where visitors can learn about the world's largest square dance (held on July 13, 1950 in Santa Monica, California) or learn about notable women square dance callers throughout history (and hear original recordings of their "calls").
