    That's terribly dangerous! Why the slightest mistake and anyone chasing the tractors with an emissions sniffer in order to calculate the carbon footprint of the performance could be run over multiple times!

    Does look fun

    I have actually heard of this activity being done many years ago. Also with forklifts.

    Square Dancing IS a lot of fun. I have been doing this activity since the age of nine with my local dance clubs. I haven't danced in several years but there was an exhibition at our County Fair just recently. I decided to try it out and it was like I had never forgot the calls. Like riding a bicycle, when you have done it as long a I have, you never forget.

    I did it for several years myself, about 15 years ago. It was fun, but then we moved here and the clubs got very straightlaced and without being able to show off it just wasn't that fun anymore.

    I bet that you still remember how to do some if not most of the calls, though.

    I have heard about that happening on the east coast. Especially with the higher levels. Advanced and Challenge. Out West and in the South (Texas especially) it's not as regulated as much. This may be a rumor but I have heard of some dancers being asked to leave the floor because they didn't dance the moves correctly or added a few extra twirls. Who cares, as long as the Square doesn't break down and no one gets hurt.

    Although when I danced Advanced, I usually toned it down some. Mostly for the sake of the other dancers. I have had some callers try to trip me up by calling some tricky calls and positions, but I have danced for so long and in so many different positions that it was pretty hard for them to catch me.

    In my experience it all depends on the club. I usually went to clubs or callers that either catered to a younger style of dancing or had callers that called a level or program that was challenging to me. Sometimes that involved some traveling. There are callers out there who yearn to call more challenging programs but the some of the clubs members don't want to have to think too hard to do the moves. That's about the time when some callers turn professional.

    After all, Square Dancing IS America's national folk dance.
