Wild West Squares kicks up their heels at dance

Last Saturday night at the Rotary Club fundraiser, the “Jewels and Jeans” Barn Dance, the Wild West Squares performed a square dance tip during intermission with caller Roberts, followed by a super easy and fun group learning session.

Public demonstrations of square dancing give dancers an opportunity to show what they have been working so hard to learn and hopefully inspire and encourage new dancers to give square dancing a try.

Our demo square of plus-level dancers on Saturday included Alice and Steve Keil, Dusty Bailey and Brian Hay, Hank Pantzar and Wanita Martin, Lois Dacus and Mike Saunders.

Help keep square dancing alive and well

Come join the Wild West Squares for an free introduction to square dance Wednesday, Oct. 26. This modern western square dance teaching program starts at a basic level, so new dancers can quickly master enough calls (or dance steps) to experience the exhilaration of dancing in a group setting.

Learn teamwork, stretch you mind and body and develop friendships with a growing group of enthusiastic dancers. 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. To best enjoy dancing, wear comfortable clothes and clean shoes.
