What we're about
The meetup group is Tom Thumb Square Dance Club and it is for those who want to socialize and exercise at the same time, make new friends and just have fun!!!!! There is a slogan we dancers use: While dancing in a square you make a circle of friends! Dancers must be at least 18 years of age, couples, singles and families are welcome to attend square dance lessons hosted by the club and children are allowed if accompanied by an adult. Lessons usually start on the first Monday after Labor Day in September and are held at the Catonsville Senior Center off of Rolling Road in Catonsville, MD. Beginner dances are held every 6-8 weeks during the time a new dancers is learning to dance. For information call Lynne Powers at 301-919-2525 or e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Square Dancing is lead by a caller and all in the square work together to dance to the caller's choreography. Square dancing is a team sport and once you learn the calls you can dance anywhere, USP, Europe, China, et cetera. Square Dance Calls are a universal language.
