MODERN SQUARE DANCING

This is a mental and physical challenge – it is dancing, it is thinking, it is

teamwork. Square dancing is a fun, lively and inexpensive social activity enjoyed by young and ‘not

so young’. Square dancing has been the official Washington State dance since April 17, 1979. We’ve

been at our Moxee location since 1986, but the club has been in existence since the early 1950’s.

 

LEARNING TO DANCE IS FUN

Repetition is the key to learning either the mainstream square

dance calls or the basic round dance rhythms (waltz and two-step).

Experience is not required for beginner lessons.

Dress for all lessons is casual. Plan to wear shoes appropriate

 for dancing – comfortable on your feet and easy on our wood floor.

Our club offers new dancer lessons in the Fall of each year.
