Square Dancing is back in Great Falls.

Square dancing has been credited with beginning in the 16th Century in England, a product of other styles of folk dancing which originated much earlier. The American version of square dancing is often considered a “cowboy” dance with many of those participating, actively involved in agricultural careers. Often times, square dances were performed in barns and called barn dances.
The 71st annual square dance convention was held in Evansville, Indiana this past June. The event contained a full educational schedule, social events and of course, lots of dancing.
