American Square Dances
program as is given in this book, starting from the bottom and adding a little at a time. All three may be used together in the presentation of a complete program of the American Round and Square Dance from the "Grand March" to "Home Sweet Home." For the advanced dancer, the exhibition teams, the "work­shop groups," and those who desire advanced and intricate routines and dances for contests, or for their own pleasure in "closed" groups under instruction, the same authors are pre­paring "Advanced Western Square Dance Figures" with music especially arranged and selected by Viola Ruth for each dance. This book will contain the top advanced dances and routines. They require precision of execution, a high degree of coopera­tion, and a sound knowledge of the basic Western and South­western Square Dance. These dances are not for general use on the floor. They are designed for and fill a special need—that of the advanced and exhibition Square Dancer.
And, as we would say to you at the end of a Square Dance Party, "Good-night and thank you for being with us."
