Advanced Square Dancing
Today’s Square Dancing is not heehaw music, frilly clothes or cowboy shirts. It’s not even dancing.It’s just walking to music. It’s a little like football, except without the concussions. You’ve got formations. You’ve got a team around you. You’ve got plays sent in by the caller. The challenge is, can you run your route successfully? Now, granted, the team is coed. But that’s a feature. If you enjoyed geometry in high school, you’ll get a kick out of this stuff.
This class covers calls 51 through 100 in the square dance curriculum. At the end of the class you’ll be Plus Dancers. To participate you must have learned the first 50 calls and have permission from the teacher. The class has four 9-week sessions and finishes in May.
