Free introductory square dance classes will be held Wednesdays Jan. 20 through March 9 at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse.

Carla Roberts will teach at the basic level, so new dancers can quickly master enough calls (or dance steps) to experience the exhilaration of dancing in a group setting. The class focus is for everyone to have an enjoyable dance session while learning the building blocks of square dance.

This is a fun, easygoing and free class open to families, couples and singles. Suggested age for children is at least 8 years old. Call Carla Roberts to enroll at 903-6478.

Help us to continue this great western heritage activity in Pagosa Springs. Kick up your heels with Roberts every Wednesday from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m., starting Jan. 20 through March 9 at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse located at 230 Port Ave. To best enjoy dancing, wear comfortable clothes and clean shoes.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer and performing arts specialist Roberts has taught and performed concerts in schools and fine arts venues in the western states for the last 35 years. Her Four Corners-based “Wild West Squares” program is designed to bring the joy of modern western square dance to people of all ages.
