Mainstream Rectangle #1332

Mainstream Rectangle #1332 is a Square Dance. It was devised by Vic Ceder (website) in about 2015. It is a 6 Couple Rectangle dance. There is no progression in this dance. The dance lasts 35 bars.

This "Square Dance" actually starts in a 6 couple rectangle rather than a square, a useful formation if you don't have quite enough people for two squares.

This format is also found in Quadrilles.

The animation plays at 120 counts per minute. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color.

An online description of the dance may be found here.

The dance contains the following figures: hand turn (allemande), rights and lefts, bend the line, ocean wave, swing through (and probably others).
