Square Dance Lessons on DVD

December 16, 2007

Square Dance Lessons on Video

Searching on YouTube for Plus video lessons I came across an excellent video lesson by the Traveling Hoedowners from Florida. The high standard of the video left the dozens of other videos on YouTube for dust. I was looking for something to help me remember the Plus moves that Jeff Seidel has been teaching us in Wild Frontier's latest Plus class. With six days between lessons I tend to forget a fair bit!

The Traveling Hoedowners have produced two DVD's - one for Mainstream, and the other for Plus. I was so impressed with the sample lesson on YouTube that I purchased their Plus DVD. I've included some information on the DVD's below but I recommend you visit their web-site and see the videos for yourself.

T.A.W.S.
(TRAVELLING AUSTRALIA WITH SQUAREDANCERS)

T.A.W.S. was initially suggested by a group of dancers who attended the Anniversary Caravan & Camping weekend at the Sunshine Coast Square Dance Centre, Buderim, Queensland in August 2006.

The inaugural meeting of T.A.W.S. was held at the 48th Australian National Square Dance Convention in Adelaide, South Australia, in June 2007 where a large group of interested dancers attended to find out more about T.A.W.S. It was a huge success, and attendees unanimously agreed that the formation of TAWS should proceed.

Coordinating Committee
A TAWS National Co-ordinating committee was subsequently formed to co-ordinate activities, receive & distribute information to members, maintain a register of members, and receive and distribute monies as required. The TAWS National Co-ordinating committee comprises the following personnel:
