SQUARE DANCE
Se llama square dance a un baile folklórico tradicional de origen francés en el que cuatro parejas de bailarines se colocan formando un cuadrado. Es un baile muy popular en Estados Unidos y Canadá y a veces se enseña en la escuela. En algunas ocasiones alguien se encarga de explicar los pasos que se han de seguir, de modo que los que no los conocen bien puedan participar. El instrumento musical más utilizado en ellos es el violín, aunque también se usan a veces la guitarra, el banjo o el acordeón.
