If you don't know how to dosado yet, you have come to the right place! Yes, September is upon us and the square dance community of Central Ohio is gearing up to start another round of fall classes. Have fun, make new friends, and become more physically fit while learning to square dance!
No special skills are needed. It doesn’t cost much (around $6 a dance), meets in smoke- and alcohol-free settings (such as churches, school gyms, parks and rec halls), and is simply good, clean fun. September is National Square Dance Month and is the best time to get started. Couples, singles and families are welcome, and the first two classes are FREE at most clubs. We dance in casual clothing and comfortable shoes. (If you have them, shoes with a smooth sole make dancing just a little easier.) Nine different modern western square dance clubs in various locations around central Ohio are offering beginner instruction. Check out the offerings on our Workshops & Classes page and join the fun! We'll be saving a spot for you in a square.
There are a number of opportunities for mainstream or plus level square dancing in Central Ohio this week. Other dance information (including information about higher level square dances, round dances, and beginner dance instruction) is available on our monthly calendar and our workshops and classes web pages.
