The Wild West Squares teaching program invites you to a free community square dance party, “Wild West Jubilee,” at 7 p.m. on April 13 at the PLPOA Clubhouse.

This family-friendly event will feature demonstrations of basic, mainstream and dancing of the Wild West Squares, free food and a community “barn” dance with live music for anyone who would like to try very simple and fun square dance activities.

The following week, Four Corners-based square dance caller Carla Roberts is putting the call out for new dancers to begin a free eight-week introduction to square dance.

In this introduction to square dance, 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.

The eight-week introduction to square dance will be from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday evenings from April 20 through June 8 at the PLPOA Clubhouse.

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 Roberts to enroll at 903-6478.
