Fun and Friendship
Set to Music
That's what the Lads 'N' Lassies is all about. Our members range in age from kids to senior adults. So "How do I get started?"
We meet at the Wilkinson Center for classes, and we also have special events at the Wilkinson Center where we have Plus-level club dances with dancers from all around Southern California, lots of special food, and great fun.
What is Square Dancing?
What should I wear?
About halfway through the year you will start going to regular dances in addition to the classes. At the dances we see everything from jeans to fancy western outfits for the men. The women prefer to wear those fun square dance dresses that look so pretty when they twirl, but most any dress works at a square dance.
With many special theme dances throughout the year, a lot of us wear theme-related costumes too.

People square dance to all types of music from Country Western to 50's to pop. Square dance callers sing part of the song and mix in square dance calls while doing it.

"But I can't dance." Someone once said it should be called "square walking" rather than "square dancing" because you mainly walk in patterns from one place to another. Everyone messes-up at one point or another which leads to laughing and working together to get back on track.
