What we're about

This meetup group is sponsored by Tom Thumb Square Dance Club. This page is for people who have an interest in Square Dancing and want to make new friends while having fun!!!!! There is a slogan we dancers use: "While dancing in a square you make a circle of friends!" Dancers must willing to learn. 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 weekly at the Catonsville Senior Center off of Rolling Road in Catonsville, MD. Beginner dances are held every 6-8 weeks while lessons are running to give new dancers a chance to put into practice what they are learing.

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. Check MDSDF.com and wheresthedance.com for dances in your area.

The club dances every first and third Friday of the month. We are a Plus Call Level club. Our main dancing location is: Hollifield Station Elementary School in Ellicott City, MD.

Come watch us dance!! We will be hosting a square dance demo at the Howard County Fair. Demo is at 5pm at the Entertainment Stage on the first Saturday in August each year and a beginner's dance is at 7pm in the 4H Activities Hall.
