 Designating the square dance as the national folk dance of the United 
                                States.

Whereas square dancing has been a popular tradition in America since early 
        colonial days;
Whereas square dancing has attained a revered status as part of the folklore of 
        this Nation;
Whereas square dancing is a joyful expression of the vibrant spirit of the 
        people of the United States;
Whereas square dancing promotes the practice of good manners and proper 
        etiquette;
Whereas square dancing is a traditional form of family recreation that fosters 
        family unity, a basic strength of this Nation;
Whereas square dancing embodies democratic principles by dissolving arbitrary 
        social distinctions among its participants; and
Whereas it is fitting that the square dance be added to the array of symbols of 
        our national character and pride: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the square dance is 
designated the national folk dance of the United States.
