Square Dancing Info

  • The Buttons & Bows club is starting a beginner square dance class on September 12th.  You can hop in new at any of the first three classes (9/12, 9/19, 9/26).  (Bring along a friend.)  After that, we build upon what has already been learned.
  • You will learn many square dance calls between September and December.  These are called mainstream calls.
  • From January through May, you will learn more calls called plus calls.
  • The club sponsors monthly dances which include square dancing and either line dancing or round dancing.  In January, the dances typically cover mainstream calls, suitable for dancers who have completed the mainstream portion of the class.  In June, the dances cover plus calls, suitable for dancers who have completed the plus portion of the class.
  • There are several square dance clubs in Orange County.  Most clubs offer lessons and sponsor dances.  Dancers from all clubs are welcome and encouraged to visit all dances.
  • See the “Classes” page here for more information.
