Calling Squares is a Family Tradition at the Alles Barn Dance
If you’ve been feeling the urge lately to swing your partner ’round and ’round, you're not alone. Dancers, callers and musicians around the country are celebrating International Square Dance Month throughout the month of September.
To some, it’s old-fashioned entertainment. But it’s hardly a thing of the past. In fact, it’s flourishing right here in Northeast Indiana, as the Alles Family Barn Dance in Roanoke keeps the tradition alive.
Looking for the lowdown on the hoedown, WBOI's Julia Meek, invited Alles square dance caller Matt Rupley to the studio to share his square dancing story.
