How Do I Get Started?

Square dancing is a little bit like typing: at first you have to think about where each letter is on the keyboard; but with practice, it becomes automatic. Most dances require that you know the "mainstream" and "plus" calls. This takes about nine months of lessons to make it automatic— like typing.

But don't worry, you'll be having fun and making friends from the very beginning. About half-way through you will be able to go to regular dances (all the callers know what you've learned so far and use just those calls).


Lads 'N' Lassies offers square dance lessons beginning mid September and running through June of the following year. Lessons begin at 7:30 pm on Monday evenings at the Wilkinson Center. (click on Location for directions).

You won't be alone at the lessons. We typically have a dozen students. But, along with the students we have "angels" —experienced dancers who dance in the squares with the students so everything goes smoother. Angels also provide a great way to meet some of the other members.

Couples, singles, young people, and families welcome.  Casual clothes with close-toed shoes, please.  Enjoy your first week FREE during open enrollment (only $6 a week after that).
