Video: Comparing Grand Squares

From the video description:

These two dances share the grand square figure and yet there are 300 years and an ocean separating the dances. The Berea College Country Dancers juxtapose the two dances to show their similarities. The music and the two styles reflect the differences between the nobility in England in 1665 and the cowboys of the American west in 1940.
