Actually, Dave, we continue to have this session at NEFFA! It has  
occurred every year for the last 4 or 5 years, and will happen again  
this Festival. It is called Seated Squares. Fred Wersan and the  
Assabet Ramblers present the dance. You can look up Fred's email  
information at the NEFFA website. I am sure that he would respond to  
individuals who get in touch with him.
