A History of the Fairs ’n Squares Square Dance Club
of Framingham, Massachusetts
By Glenn Ickler
The call to square dance in Framingham came in October of 1961 when the Framingham Department of Recreation sponsored a class at the Civic League with Paul
Pratt of Chelmsford as the caller and teacher. Three couples showed up that first evening and a man was recruited from an office in the building to dance with the caller’s
wife in order to complete a square.
By graduation in the spring of 1962 there were 3 to 4 sets dancing. An independent
club was formed in 1962 with a board of directors. George and Carolyn Frost, the first
presidents, named the club and designed the badge still in use today.
During the club’s first “official year” there were ten squares in class. Dances were
held in any and all halls large enough to accommodate the crowd. A telephone tree was
established to inform dancers of the location of each dance. Coffee, made at home in a
large urn, was transported hot to the dance location by a very careful driver.
A permanent home was found the following year. The club has moved to five other
halls since then, settling into its present home in Ellison Hall in 1995.
In 1964, the Fairs ’n Squares originated the Presidents’ Ball, an annual event that
drew presidents and vice presidents from dozens of New England clubs for 25 years. In
1965 the club organized the Town and Country Jubilee, which drew 3,000 dancers to
the Prudential Center in Boston.
In 1979, the Fairs ’n Squares became the first (and for more than 20 years the only)
club to receive the Yankee Clipper Award at the New England Square and Round
Dance Convention.
A scholarship fund was established in 1970 and each year $1,000 is granted to a
deserving Framingham high school graduate attending a college or university. Over
the years, club members have participated in numerous community events, including
helping charitable fund raisers, marching in the Framingham Flag Day parade and
entertaining residents of Framingham nursing homes.

Hi Ed and Pat,
I am a UK reader of your magazine and I have been following you letters in February and March with great interest. I have
been a dancer for over 20 years and I fear that the pastime is
slowly dying in the UK - recruitment of any age group is difficult.
I am not a caller and work commitments prevent me from giving it the time required
to learn. Over the last 5 years I have thought out of the box to support my club and now
when our caller is away I occasionally run what have become known as Bob’s Disco’s. I
try to give people something different. I dim the lights in the hall and use gentle disco
lighting to improve the atmosphere – who wants to sit all night in a room harshly lit by
fluorescent lights?
I use good quality recorded music which I gather from around the world, played
through a good sound system. I control my PC with a remote control so that my wife
and I can dance as well. I totally don’t care what people wear, I just want them dancing.
6 squares in modern dress beats 2 in square dance clothing in my book! The nights are
lively, relaxed, I make as many mistakes as the other dancers and we all laugh about it. I
often get more dancers than we get on our usual club nights !
I know it isn’t the solution to our problems, I cannot teach people but at least I can give
our existing dancers a good time and hopefully stop them getting bored.
I think my message is that whether we are callers, club committee members or simply dancers we all must work together and not be afraid to try different things. If some of
them come right Square Dancing will have a future.
Regards

Comment
JIM MAYO
I’ve been working on the SquareDanceHistory.org web site recently. We have
collected a lot of information and video images. I have been trying to understand how
and when we made the transition from traditional square dancing to what we are now
calling “modern western” square dancing. We are pretty much agreed on what the
difference is. In traditional dancing the dance routine is repeated several times during
each individual tip. In modern square dancing the caller changes the dance routine as it
is called.
That idea of changing the dance pattern during the dance happened, generally, after
WW2. It may have been done in isolated places before the war but we don’t have any
recordings that let us know about those. We do know that by the early 1960’s there were
books describing for callers how to manage that kind of choreographic change.
It is nearly certain that the changing of the dance pattern as it was called in modern
square dancing became common during the fifteen year period from 1945 to 1960.
Another difference between most traditional square dancing and its modern siblings is
the club. We know that there were traditional square dance clubs but much of traditional
dancing was put on by the musicians or the caller or by some other organization that hired
them both. In New England some of the clubs that started before there was modern square
dancing made the changeover in that same fifteen year period.
When I returned to New England after the Korean War there were three clubs that I
knew of already in operation; the Pittsfield Quadrille Club, the Fitchburg Quadrille Club
and the Seacoast Region Square Dance Club. All of them made the transition to modern
square dancing and continued as modern clubs for several decades although the Fitchburg
club went through several name changes along the way. I think there was one south of
Boston, too.
I wrote recently to Earl Johnston and I have spoken with Al Brundage. We all think
Al’s Connecticut Club was the first truly modern (meaning different from the traditional
New England) square dance club in New England. He formed that club after his visit to
Pappy Shaw’s in Colorado in 1949. If anyone knows of some other information that would
help me understand more about the origin of modern square dancing, I would love to hear
from you.

ED FOOTE
AS A DANCER, WHAT I LOOK FOR IN A CALLER
Each year my Plus club has guest callers, and I try to attend if I am in town. I also
try to attend dances when I am traveling. As a dancer, here is a list of things I look for
in a caller.
1. FREQUENT ALLEMANDE LEFTS The dancers need to be rewarded with the
carrot of a Left Allemande when they have done well, and it is good to have constant
positive reinforcement. Thus, I like to see a Left Allemande at least every 45 - 60 seconds.
The Allemandes do not all have to be followed with a Right & Left Grand - the key is
the Allemande itself. Some callers just call and call with very few Allemandes, and this
causes some dancers to be nervous, in addition to putting a damper on enthusiasm from
the floor.
2. SMOOTH CHOREOGRAPHY This should be automatic for all callers, but I am
amazed by the number of times I experience direct reversal of body flow, or combinations
that are adequate but could be made much better with a little thought. Women dancers
often suffer more from un-smooth choreography, because most callers are men and they
assume that if something is smooth for the men then it is also smooth for the women. This
is not necessarily the case.
On the flip side, I danced to one caller who was so perfect on smooth choreography that
everyone was a constant state of perfect flow. By the second half of the dance my body was
crying out for something different - not something awkward but at least something that
would let some dancers stop occasionally. We never got it. In other words, it is possible to
be too perfect.
3. FEW TO NO DO-SA-DOS Do-Sa-Do is a double reversal of body flow. The more
this call is given, the less smooth the dance. In addition, if a caller calls Do-Sa-Do prior
to a Swing Thru, it is talking down to the dancers, in effect saying: “I don’t think you
are capable of doing a Swing Thru without doing a Do-Sa-Do first.” I count the number
of times a caller uses Do-Sa-Do. Three or 4 a night might be ok, simply because it
is a traditional call, but any more is excessive and indicates a lack of thinking about
choreography. One or no Do-Sa-Dos during a dance greatly elevates the caller in my eyes.
Continued in the June issue.

It starts off with three crochet and three knit patterns for capes, shawls and wraps
to keep you stylish and warm prior to dancing or while you are taking a break. Why
cover your dance ensemble with an old sweater when you can create a beautiful garment
that will keep you comfortable and not crush your sleeves or mash your ruffles? The
instructions range from very easy to moderately challenging. They have been tested
several times for accuracy. All of the knit and crochet items will be on display in the
sewing studio.
There are new skirts to make using your serger and ‘jelly rolls’ of fabric from the
quilting section. These involve making the strips into panels and cutting the panels into
sections for skirt construction. All of the instructions have a picture of the item. Complete
directions and formulas for creating flat circle skirts are also included. You will be able
to make a circle skirt to fit a child or a very tall woman with this information. All of the
garments and projects pictured in the book will be available for inspection at the sewing
studio. You will be able to handle the items and make your own notes.
Sew Creatively is also the name of the sewing studio at the convention. It is very easy
to find on the second floor of the entrance hall. The four Make & Take sessions in the
studio will be - Pincushions, Ruched Flowers, Muslin Quilt Squares and Beaded T-shirts.
Check the program book for exact times when you get to the convention. There will be
volunteers to help you with each of these projects. Volunteers will also be prepared to
help with any fashion mishaps. If you split a seam or loose a hem just go to the sewing
studio for help with a repair. The tracing area will also have volunteers to keep things
running smoothly.

Many new patterns for tracing have been developed. The emphasis is on asymmetrical
skirt construction. There are several different patterns for tracing and the instructions
for easy asymmetrical construction are in the sewing book. Serger and sewing machine
instructions are included. These skirts are not difficult and they really look graceful on the
dance floor.
There will be a Free Table in the Sewing Studio. Donations of patterns and sewing
books or magazines would all be very welcome. Just bring them along to the convention
and share them with other dancers.
The Sewing Seminars will be in the Conference Theater on the ground floor. It has
tiered seating for 270 people with a writing table attached to each seat. Presenters will be
using the sound system so everyone will be able to hear. The projector will allow everyone
to see the presentation clearly. The schedule will be listed in the program book and on
display boards in the convention center.
For further information on the book, sewing studio or seminars go to the sewing tab
on the 61st NSDC web site www.61nsdc.com or www.SquareDanceSewing.com. Contact
us if you would like to volunteer for a couple of hours in the sewing studio or in the
Conference Theater.
Please order your Sew Creatively book right now. The number of books ordered will be
the number printed. Don’t count on buying your copy at the door. If you did not purchase a
copy of the book when you registered you may add it to your registration by going on line
to [email protected] The books will be printed the end of April so orders sent in after
April might not be filled.

square dancing. They came to a free Fun Night
to see if they like square dancing. Most sign up
for our 15 week mainstream class. Check our
web site for details, www.riversidesquares.org or
see our ad on page 20.
Riverside Squares is planning a 2012 summer
dance program with the same location and
format as last year. We will be back at
the Woburn Memorial Senior Center on
three Saturday nights, with Red Bates
