2016 - 2017 Dance Schedule

Back to Baker in February 2017!

Most of our dances and all of our lessons September 2016 through January 2017 were held at Pottawatomie Community Center, 8 North Avenue, St. Charles, IL.  See Map

All our dances and lessons from February through May 2017 are being held at the newly renovated Baker Community Center, 101 South Second Street (Route 31), St. Charles, IL, which now has elevators, air conditioning, and other improvements, in addition to a great wood floor!  This is just one block south of Route 64.

Free parking is available in the lot behind Baker, on the street, in the lot on the southwest corner of Walnut and Third Streets, and in the 4-story parking garage just across Rt 31 (just go east on Walnut to enter it).

Caller Change:  Bobby Poyner will be our caller on Saturday, March 11, 2017. Howard Hoffman will be cuing the rounds.


The Fox Valley Mixers Square Dance Club normally dances at the Baker Community Center, 101 South Second Street (Rt. 31), St. Charles, IL, on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays each month from September through mid May.  See our Schedule below for exceptions.
