This group is for those who want to socialize and exercise all while having fun! Make a circle of friends while dancing in a square. The dancing is taught by a caller and is easy to follow and learn.  Couples, singles and families (children must be at least 9 years of age) are all welcome to join this group. No experience, partner or special clothing is required to attend the open house dances which occur in September each year!

What makes square dancing different from most other forms of dance?  The really big difference is that it is a community dance rather than a couple dance. It is lead by the caller rather than by the lead dancer (generally the man).  That fact alone alleviates all of the pressure put upon the lead dancer to be creative and skilled, to impress his partner.  All of the dancers in the square follow the lead of the caller and work together to dance the choreography presented by the caller.  It's a group of 8 dancers, all dancing together.  Square dancing it is a team sport and can be a lifetime activity!

A brief but nice article with great pictures was published in our local newspaper regarding the open house square dance we held on 9/19/2013:  http://www.gazette.net/article/20130925/NEWS/130929661/1094/rockville-square-dance-club-seeks-to-revive-time-honored-pastime&template=gazette

Some pictures from the open house!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
