方塊舞(Square Dancing)

早期殖民剛到美國時,他們帶來許多不同形式的舞蹈:方塊舞是最古老的美國民族舞蹈之一,由幾種不同的舊世界團體舞蹈演變而來,主要來自於英國的舞蹈,或像其他人說的,來自於法國的卡德利爾舞 (French quadrille) 。 

美國版的方塊舞為四對舞伴排成正方形,再配上手風琴、班究琴、小提琴和吉他所演奏的音樂。美國版的方塊舞新增了一個舞步指揮 (caller) ;您認為舞步指揮要做什麼?

When early colonial settlers came to America, they brought many forms of dance to their new home. Square dancing, one of the oldest forms of American folk dancing, evolved from several different Old World group dances, mainly the English country, or contra, dance and the French quadrille.

In the American version of square dancing, four couples form a square and dance to music from an accordion, banjo, fiddle, and guitar. An American addition to square dancing is the caller. What do you think a caller does?
