What we’re about

Independence Squares is Philadelphia’s Modern Western Square Dance club serving the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. Current membership includes men, women and nonbinary folks. We welcome LGBTQ+ and straight dancers of all ages to join us. 
Anyone Can Learn to Dance - This isn't a Jr. High gym class square dance. We are a high energy club that encourages everyone to join us. Even if you have two left feet... if you can walk, you can square dance. It's a fun way to exercise your mind and your body... all while meeting new people and making lasting friendships. 
Unlike conventional clubs, you don't have to come with a partner, you can dance either the boy's or girl's part, regardless of your actual gender, and we dance to a broad range of music that can include Abba, Garth Brooks, Fleetwood Mac, Lady Gaga, Phantom of the Opera and ZZ Top (for starters). You can dance in jeans and t-shirts too. 
Square dancing is a social, low-key way to meet people.  Please Join Us!
