Welcome, Future Dance Friends
You2CanDance.com -- great site providing information on square, round and contra dancing.
Interesting write-up... TOP TEN THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SQUARE DANCING
Also, please take this link to find a wealth of information to help you understand the many benefits of dancing, and to learn what square dance, round dance, and contra dance are. This site is sponsored by some great folks in Nova Scotia, Canada. It would be my hope that at some future time, we could present such information but geared to our local audience.
And North Shore Squares in Evanston, IL has a great website with a great story to tell about square dancing.
The first stated purpose of our organization is to "Encourage lessons and other activities to allow new dancers to join the activity". One such activity is promoting "open dances" in which barriers do not exist that would exclude folks from coming out and sharing the dance experience with us.
Open dances do not require:
prior dance experience
special clothes (but you will want clean comfortable footwear)
Contra Dancing in Midland, MI (singles friendly, no experience needed - a good way to expose friends to the joys of dancing).
There are varied dance clubs (round, modern western square dancing clubs, traditional square dance clubs, that offer classes that are great fun in their own right, but also help dancers become more proficient so they'll have fun participating in club level dances. See the classes page for details.
Michigan Council Club dance locations - This shows a list of the clubs to assist you in finding a local club. Call a club in your area and inquire about local opportunities.
We hope you can join us!
