Gail Ingis | Hoot n' Holler


I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.

Hi, Writers—

Square dancing has been around since America began . . . well, even though officially it was 1776, we got lots of folks here before that, so, let’s say 17th century saw a flood of people seeking a better way of life. They came bringing their culture with them. We ended up with a mixture of music and dance from here and there and everywhere. It was all thrown into a big melting pot and lots of wonder came out. If we are talking about square dancing being one of the wonders, now, in 2015, it is known as modern western square dancing. Want to see U-tube square dancing flash mob . . . here you go!

All of this is big time, hand clapping, foot stomping fun.

If you want to learn, here’s an invite for you.


About Gail Ingis

Gail Ingis writes historical romance, loves history and romance of course, has taught history, and her weekly blog frequently covers historical content. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Ingis’s early days began and ended with writing, drawing and music. Her inspiration to write came from books gifted to her by an aunt. But life had other ideas.

After graduating from the New York School of Interior Design with a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design and masters’ studies in Architecture and Design Criticism at The New School (Parsons). Her career in interior design and architecture led her to the other arts. Ingis founded the Interior Design Institute, a school of interior design, that she eventually sold, but during her tenure, she was twice asked by publishers to write a textbook, her efforts were thwarted by a heavy schedule.

She is a member of the CTRWA—Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s of America.

Re: Gail Ingis | Hoot n' Holler

You surprised me today with your posting. I thought it was
going to be another article about some type of material, or
a find about furniture, or something to do with interior
design. I never expected to see an article about Western
Dancing, but it was interesting to read about, as well as
very refreshing to find the video embedded. Once again,
thank you for coming today, and sharing your little tidbits
of wisdom with us, to fill in those blanks that we have in
our brains which are waiting for info to pass on to others.
I'll be looking for your books.
