WHAT IS SQUARE DANCING?
Together with seven other people in your square, your goal is to follow directions given by the caller, all at a brisk walking pace. It’s teamwork set to music. As long as you can walk, generally know your right from your left and like to laugh, you can learn to Square Dance.

Like “Simon Says” for Adults

With its brisk walking pace, minimal twists or spins and multi-call vocabulary, Square Dancing blurs the lines between mental sport and dance hobby, amateur and pro.... celebrity and mortal. 
 
Benefits Galore 

Square dancing is a fun activity that engages both brain and feet. Square Dance lessons will teach you the calls you’ll need to know to attend dances. The weekly classes can be the perfect date-night evening out, as well as a way to make new friends in a safe, alcohol-free setting. See our FAQ page for more details about this all-American dance form.
 
Square Dance People 

Singles and couples, empty-nesters and working folk come together at our typical square dance events. The age-range tends to be mainly adults, as young people and parents with kids tend to have other activities demanding attention.
