Square Dance Fun For Everyone!

Bob Elling has been calling for 3rd and 4th graders every week for 8 years. Over that time, he has developed choreography which is extremely simple and can be done easily by people with little or no square dancing experience. The CDs on this page include songs that have been recorded by some of the top callers in the country, all of which are appropriate for elementary school use or for use by people who have not square danced before. (School CDs are $15 each.)

Sample Video Animations

Bob Elling and Chuck Clay have collaborated on these videos which show simple animations of dancers going through the movements called in each song, synchronized with the music. This will make it easier for non-dancers (such as teachers) to teach the dances to other non dancers. The following are sample extracts from these videos.
