Special Events for New Dancers
are a huge success!

Whether you’re looking to get fit, meet new friends, or just have a blast, our community at Queens and Jacks Square Dance Club is the perfect place to start.

Here is How YOU can Join Us!

On September 9th and 16th  we will be offering  2 free introductory dance nights for people to come and try out square dancing.

We accommodate singles and couples – even families. All you need to do is come – the sessions are from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. There is no need to register.

Lessons will begin on Monday, September 23rd – at this time people need to make a commitment and pay the registration fee.

Our new dancer lessons run from 7:00 to 8:45 pm and are followed by a Mainstream dance from 8:45 to 10:00 pm.

Experienced dancers – called Square Angels – attend the lesson nights in order to fill out the squares and to assist dancers with the moves instructed by the caller.
