There is nothing like a square dance to bring a community together. I approached my friend, Tracy Green, who owns The Green Bean in Eagle Rock, just down the street from the Purple Twig. She is also in the incredible band The Hollow Trees. If you know the Hollow Trees then you would know that Traci would be the perfect person to partner with to put together a family square dance. So we did.
I got the ever talented Triple Chicken Foot for the music and the incredible caller, Susan Michaels. Traci rented the Legion Hall. Add some decorations, a food truck and we were ready to go.
Susan, the caller, not only teaches everyone the dances as we go, she also knows so many whimsical dances perfect for little ones. We had kids as little as two dancing away. It's such an incredible way for families to spend time together.
It was an incredible way for the community to come together, just laughing and dancing together. Thank you all who joined us. It was so fun to work with Tracy on this and we are now talking about having it be a regular thing.
