Come dance with us!
A person does not need to have any knowledge of previous dancing or need to follow a partner. If you have ever wanted to dance and were told you had no rhythm, you’ll be surprised how you will be dancing in no time and the best of all, having fun while doing it.
We offer two FREE fun nights through our Student Lessons starting in September. This is your opportunity to get a feel for it and see if it‛s right for you!
Student lessons were designed to help you learn all the necessary calls and patterns during a dance. Once you have attended 12 lessons or more you are welcome to attend Beginner dances.
Yes, it is!
Square Dance is a dance composed of four couples standing in a square formation (8 people). The square dance progresses through specific patterns called or sung out to the dancers by a caller using music CDs or in special occasions, tunes played by a band. A person does not need to have any knowledge of previous dancing.
Mainstream & Plus Level Dances are intermediate level dances. At this level you will already know over 100 calls and have at least participated in a few beginner dances, and have taken student lessons in order to attend this level.
Couples are welcome, but not required.
No, because of the length of sessions, lessons run from September through April. However, if you get together a large group of persons we may consider starting a new set of lessons.
The Square Dance look has changed. We may see everything from full western to graceful skirts and dresses at Conventions but most dancers will wear comfortable contemporary outfits that look good on the dance floor. Dancing shoes with a soft-leather sole are recommended.
