Cancelled – Introduction to Square Dancing
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This event has been cancelled due to lack of registrations.
The Boulder Junction Public Library is sponsoring a free introduction to Square Dancing on Thursday, March 24, 2022, from 10 am to 12 pm in the Boulder Junction Community Center. Square dance is a traditional American folk dance with European roots. Square dancing is derived from various traditional European dances, including the Morris Dance from England and a French dance form called the quadrille, first documented in the seventeenth century. In North America, square dancing is regarded as a social dance, closely associated with the country’s southern and western regions. It is the official state dance of Colorado, Massachusetts, and over 20 other states.
You don’t have to be a “dancer” to square dance! Come see what it is all about in a free introductory program. Square dance caller Amanda Herdt, from Levi’s & Lace Square Dance Club, will teach some basic square dance steps such as Do-si-do, Allemande Left and Promenade, to the beat of modern country and rock music. Square dancing is a fun way to “move to music,” get exercise, learn a new skill, and make new friends.
No partner is needed, and all ages are welcome. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Refreshments will be served.
Please register in advance for this free, fun session by calling the Boulder Junction Public Library at 715-385-2050. Deadline for registration is Monday, March 21, 2022.
