Square Dance Video Infomercial – MN

Winning Ways Story Mike & Edie Kirsch 2004-02-28

The desire for a tape to show at square dance demos, showing the fun and excitement of Square Dancing, has developed into a 15 minute Square Dancing Infomercial in Minnesota’s Central East Region.

In previous years one of the local clubs recorded a tape each year in the studios of a local public access cable TV station. It was shot in a studio with 2 or 3 squares and no scenery. It did net a few couples each year but wasn’t really that exciting.

Knowing that a professionally done film, produced by a recording studio would be cost prohibitive they approached the regional cable access company about taping some scenes at local square dances. The company was very receptive and offered to produce a 15-minute infomercial about square dancing for a maximum of $1500.00. The final cost was $1300.00.
