I sometimes wonder if I'm optimistic in returning square dancing to the 132-136BPM that it was back in the '60s and '70s (it's generally 126BPM now), but then I run across something from back when they used to really dance... 146BPM:

Square Dance - Mildred Bulher:

Mildred R. Buhler was a popular caller in northern California in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Here she is calling to her demonstration group from the Redwood City Docey-Doe Club. When her husband was transferred to London for his work, she took her calling equipment with her and called there, later establishing the British Association of American Square Dance Clubs.
