You've been intending to start getting more exercise. Do it NOW – in a way that is lots of fun!
We hope you have a such a wonderful time at our Intro to Square Dancing Party that you decide to return the following week and begin square dancing lessons! We will have the same Caller/Instructor, Howard Hoffman, and lessons will be held each Sunday evening, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at Baker Community Center.
The leader verbalizes "calls" during the music that tell you what steps to take as you move to the beat of the music. As a new dancer you will learn and practice these calls during lessons. You are actually square dancing and having fun within a few minutes after the first lesson begins!
GOT PRECONCEIVED IDEAS ABOUT SQUARE DANCING?
- This is not your school gym class.
- You don't have to wear a special costume.
- Much of the music is not country western.
- No dance skills are required.
We also welcome people in all sorts of outfits – jeans, tee-shirts, short poufy skirts, long skirts, Western gear, or New York chic. If it’s decent, we endorse it. Today’s square dance music is a mix of traditional, popular, classics, and rock – basically, any music with a steady beat.
Teens to silver-haired new dancers are welcomed to the New Dancer program where they will be joined in squares with experienced dancers who provide gentle assistance while learning, practicing, and dancing.
