Dance Programs


A Comparison of a few Evening Dance Programs

In this section I present several listings of dance programs from a few different New Hampshire square dance callers. The choice of callers and programs is largely determined by what I have available, mostly from recordings made of dances.

Page & Section Contents

This section presents listings of dance programs from several excellent callers. I think the change and consistency observed in a caller's program of dances for an evening can be interesting, especially in some of the excellent callers of previous generations who tended to have more consistency in their programming. I also present some analysis and comparison of the programs. Hopefully this section will also be useful, for example, to some future ethnomusicologist looking to study this from a different perspective.

So far I've included the following callers; I will add to this section if additional dance programs become available. You can use the buttons below (or the website menus) to get to each page.
