I can't remember -- do they do the Square Dance with a caller or without?

Hmmmm, scheming to get to Salt Lake City next April. I've never seen that version live.

Madison Sugg, who danced with Ballet West before joining Pacific Northwest Ballet this season, danced "Square Dance" with the caller and described her experience in her "American Stories" blog post on the PNB site:
