Barn Dance and hoedown Dance Styles

Barn dance

This usually applies to the English style dance with a Caller calling throughout the dance. The dances and tunes can be largely from anywhere in the world. It is an invented style for most events such as parties or wedding receptions. Sometimes people like to theme these events and dress up in cowboy gear etc. The choice is yours.

Ceilidh

As the name suggests, this is a celtic style event with either an Irish or Scottish flavour, as both nationalities use the same word. Ceilidh literally means a gathering traditionally with songs, tunes, stories or anything that was entertaining. Now it tends to just mean a dance with a Caller calling the dances.

Hoedown

The name hoedown comes from the mid west of America where the farmers would stop work at the end of the day and literally put down their spades, hoes and other farming implements and throw an impromptu dance with whatever instruments everyone would bring. The name today usually means a barn dance style dance with cowboy hats etc - a western theme. Unlike western square dancing, the Caller does not sing the dance moves during the dance but merely calls the moves.
