Steven Wagner – Stevan Vagner, Podrum COLLEGIUM MELODIUM, World music museum in BELGRADE, Moma MILIC Victor / 22 months / and Filip, present, Country/western dance, also called Country and Western dance, encompasses many dance forms or styles, which are typically danced to country-western music, and which are stylistically associated with American country and/or western traditions. Many of these dances were “tried and true” dance steps that had been “put aside” for many years, and became popular under the name(s) “country-western”, “cowboy”, or “country”. Country dancing is also known as “kicker dancing” in Texas. From the earliest days, the dances and the music that accompanied them were brought to The United States by the people of the British Isles, continental Europe, and Africa. The Virginia Reel, based on the “Sir Roger de Coverly” became popular after the French Revolution. Quadrilles, too, including the cotillon, anglicized as cotillion, were brought to America by French dancing masters. Their influence survives in terms used in square dancing. One 1774 account states that “Betwixt the country dances they have what I call everlasting Jigs. A couple gets up and begins to cut a jig (to some Negro tune). Others come and cut them out, and these dances always last as long as the fidler can play.” Another author wrote of whites doing “giggs”. Southern wrote that “the whites themselves, and especially the younger ones, were apt to move into reels and jigs at their own dances after a few perfunctory bows in the direction of “society sets” such as minuets and cotillions.
In the early 19th century larger farm houses had dance rooms built in along the back of the second story. In smaller houses the kitchen was used for dancing. “Junkets” (sometimes known as “heel-burners”) were casual affairs. Town halls were also used for gatherings. These dances would last from mid-afternoon through the next morning
