Barn Par-tay

At the HVA Barn Party this year, the big addition was a square dance caller. He had a record player and speakers to play the square dance music and went through a square dance tutorial for those of us who were interested. We learned lots of Square dancing concepts like:

  • Your partner and your corner
  • Heads versus sides
  • Do-si-do
  • Promenade
  • Some twirly thing

Anyway, the best (or worst) part was that the music on the records were square dance covers of hits from the eighties. This is an example of what we heard:

Heads to the center (You can fly higher than an eagle)

Do-si-do (Cuz you are the wind beneath my wings)

Or this:

Promenade (I love you for your Pink Cadillac, Crushed velvet seats, riding in the back)

Face your corners, do-si-do (Oozing down the street, waving to the girls, feeling out of site, spending all my money on a Saturday night.)

Yes, he sang Wind Beneath My Wings and Pink Cadillac.


If I can get pictures from Stephen and Jamie, I’ll post them up.
