At many square dances, as much time is devoted to ROUND Dancing as to Square Dancing.
While some dancers are taking a break between Square Dance tips, others use that time for Round Dancing.
What is Round Dancing?
Round dancing is like ballroom dancing that is choreographed and cued for you as you dance. It is a beautiful dance form where all the couples dance the same movements in unison at the direction of the cuer (caller). The dancing couples form a circle and dance around it; hence the name. Many types of ballroom dance are used, including cha-cha, two-step, waltz, jive, rumba and foxtrot. A few square dance clubs have Round Dance instruction.
