Square Dancing Classes

Mon, Mar 20, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
First Baptist Church gym, 2025 Sonoma Blvd., Vallejo
The Vallejo Pioneers are sponsoring beginner classes on Mondays. The next class is Monday, March 20. Enrollment is open through March 27.

It’s free in March,(thereafter $25/person/month), starting at 7:30 pm at the First Baptist Church gym, 2025 Sonoma Blvd, Vallejo. Singles welcome, no fancy attire necessary. Soft soled shoes requested due to dancing on a wood floor.

Square dancing is unique in modern dance forms in that it’s called (so you know what to do), but the figures change constantly. Rather than learning one dance and repeating it, there’s an endless variation to experience with other people. If you can walk, you can square dance, but there’s the opportunity for a lot of expression, and a whole lot of collaboration.

And it’s called in English across the globe, so if you learn to dance here you can drop into a community from Japan to Germany to Australia.

Yes, it takes a little while to learn to dance at a level you can take to other clubs, but we’ll have fun along the way. We’ll stick to the standard calls, but as the caller, if you’ve got other dance experience I’m totally open to revitalizing the form with flourishes from other forms. I want to learn too.

If you’ve got questions either, email , or contact the caller, Dan Lyke at 415-342-5180.
