In celebration of National Dance Day and Texas history, this coloring sheet honors Square Dancing as one of the designated folk
dances for the state of Texas! "First recorded in this country in 1651, the original square dances can be described as choreographic melting
pots, containing elements of the Morris and Maypole dances of England, as well as the French ballroom dances and church dances of Spain:
as later immigrants arrived on our shores, square dancing evolved to include the folk dance traditions of nations such as Ireland, Germany, Italy, Poland, Austria, Russia, and Mexico" (H.C.R. No. 153 72nd Legislature, regular session). Download it here and share your colorful page with us on Facebook!
