History of Australia's 1950's Square Dancing Boom:
Square dancing has historical roots dating back to English "Morris' and 'Country' dance, and to The Minuet in the Royal Ballrooms of Louis XIII and Louis XIV of France, and of course it went viral and became an institution in America through the great support Henry Ford and Dr. Lloyd Shaw. Much has been written about that hisroty. Below is a collection of articles we are compiling to help preserve the history of Australia's own square dancing boom in the 1950s. We'd be pleased to add further articles to this collection.
