Square Up! Let’s get BACK to DANCE!
We want to help existing dancers get back to the dance floor. Square Up! is responding to the request from experienced dancers saying, "It’s been too long, I am afraid I've forgotten too much of my dancing!". We offer a kind and gentle review of the complete mainstream program. We will dance 6 lessons starting Sept 13th, 2021, each Monday evening 7 P.M to 9:30 PM (with a break for Thanksgiving Monday). We will be dancing full squares. We want all dancers to feel comfortable getting back on the floor, at any of their home clubs.
A minimum number of dancers will be required for this program to run. NEW: Due to the uncertainties of COVID, and the fact that we have some dancers who will not join us until October, we have decided to go to per session pricing. $8/per person, per evening, cash or cheque.
This program is welcoming to all dancers who have received both vaccine doses, and to help ensure the safety of those participating, we will be wearing masks, and distancing whenever possible. All Alberta Health, City of Edmonton, and Belmead Community League guidelines will be adhered to. If we should hit any capacity limitations imposed by COVID regulations, priority will be on a 'first come, first served' basis. To register for this program, go to the Square Up! CONTACT US below.
On November 1st, 2021, we will start a 6 week dance program for new dancers, followed by a party dance on week 7. New dancers will be taught 7:00PM to 8:15PM each Monday session. Pricing for the new dancer program is $60/person or $100/couple prepaid . Minimum of 8, maximum of 24 new dancers is required to proceed with the program. Make it even more fun, invite a couple of your friends to join too! To register, go to the Square Up! CONTACT US below.
Experienced dancers may attend to fill a square, and encourage new dancers. Later in the evening we will be dancing full Mainstream level for experienced dancers, 8:30PM to 9:30PM. Angel (experienced) dancers can attend at $5/evening (or for convenience, a pre-paid punch card is available, 7 evenings for $35/person). We appreciate the help of angel dancers to grow the numbers in our dance community, and to ensure our activity thrives into the future. New dancers will become full mainstream dancers by early April if they continue their lessons in January. To register for this program, go to the Square Up! CONTACT US below.
We want you to come out and join the fun! Square Dancing is one of the best kept secrets. A new dancer recently remarked "I never knew square dancing could be so much fun!". It's for all ages, couples and singles. You don't need any dance experience at all, and you will be dancing your very first evening! Come out and laugh with us!
What We’re About Square Dancing is a great way to have fun, stay fit (both body & mind), plus meet new people. An excellent workout - thousands of steps per evening. We Square Dance in groups of four couples (team dancing), with dance instructions given by a "caller". There are many Square Dance clubs in the Edmonton area. The music at our club is largely a mix of newer popular music that you will recognize and enjoy.
What do I wear? Casual clothes, and clean, comfortable non-marking shoes.
We are fully inclusive, all are welcome! We include singles. Families are welcome (children age 10+ with parents). No special dance attire is required. We want you to come out and join the fun!
