Next Meetup

Learn to Square Dance
The Farmers and Charmers have decided to start our class an hour earlier than advertised to accommodate those that have to get up early on Monday or those that don’t want to miss their favorite TV program at 9 pm. Our new class hours will be 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm starting with our September 30th class. A side benefit is that most restaurants will still be open after the class. Ask about our family plan so you can get your whole family dancing together. Our introductory class scheduled for this Sunday will still be from 6:30 to 9:00 pm as there isn’t enough time to notify everyone.

What we're about

Get away from the Television and exercise your mind and body while making friends and have fun while you do it. Square Dancing is a good way for people of all ages to meet new people. Square Dancing is a team dance of 8 people and if a few positions are needed you could be coaxed out of your chair to complete their square. There is plenty of touching, hugging and exercise, about 6,000 to 7,000 steps, about five miles or 2/3 the daily requirement, in a two hour class. It takes about 9 months to learn all the movements and during that time you are dancing, not with one person but with everyone in the room. After graduating you then will be ready to go to Dances and you will be dancing with 100’s of people from a 30 mile radius. In your daily routine you’ll be greeting people you’ve “danced with” in restaurants, stores and at events. Square Dancing is always taught in English and in your travels throughout the world, a phonebook will lead you to the nearest Dance and new friends.
