Texas Squares at Pinewoods
In the late 1940s, the Country Dance and Song Society was best known for its work focused on English country dances and ritual dances. Starting in 1949 (see cover of the CDSS newsletter) and then at early Pinewoods camp sessions in 1951 and 1952, Texas squares were included in their programs, which featured caller Ray Smith. Here are some items that document the growing CDSS interest in traditional Texas squares. Reprinted from The Country Dancer; used with permission of the author and CDSS.
