What is Square Dancing?
The earliest American settlers brought square dancing with them to the New World. Over the centuries it evolved into what we know today as American Square Dancing.
Dancers learn the basic steps and movements in dance classes. Four couples form a square and follow the caller's calls synchronized to music. As dancers become comfortable with the formations and movements, they advance to more challenging levels. Callers choose from hundreds of musical scores.
Square dancing is enjoyed around the world from Germany to New Zealand. To standardize the dance, it is always called in English. Our club welcomes visitors from around the globe so do come and share a fun evening of square and round dancing.
