Oregon Ballet Theater Includes Square Dancing in Performance

Square dancing pops up in the oddest places. This time, square dancing appeared in the Oregon Ballet Theater’s spring performance of George Balanchine’s “Square Dance.”

This 24-minute work, set to music by Antonio Vivaldi and Arcangelo Corelli, features a live square dance caller.

According to the PAC’s April minutes, at least two members of the Oaky Doaks were planning to attend the ballet on April 23. The club was invited to do a dance demo before the ballet.

The ballet ran from April 21 to May 1. I wish I had gone. But I guess I’ll go to a real square dance instead.
