Square Dancing, fun for everyone
Submitted By Al Minard
Farmers & Farmerettes Square Dance Club invites everyone to learn to Square Dance on Wednesday nights at the Newark Pavilion, beginning January 15, 2014 from 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Square dancing is an American Dance based on French Quadrilles and the English Country Dance. Modern Square Dancing is a group of eight people executing dance moves as a team at the instruction of the caller. Square dancing to all types of music has been standardized worldwide and dance calls are taught the same around the world; allowing people that speak different languages to all dance together as a team. Different dance movements are given universal names like Do-si-do, Allemande left, and Load the Boat. Square dancing is for anyone that can walk at a reasonable pace and follow instructions of the caller.
The Farmers & Farmerettes, square dance club will teach anyone interested in Square Dancing how to have fun, meet new friends, get some good exercise and learn to dance. The first three lessons on January 15, January 22 and January 29, 2014 are FREE. We have danced at the Newark Pavilion (6430 Thornton Ave., in Newark) at the corner of Cherry and Thornton Ave. for over 30 years. After learning some of the dance steps, area Hoedowns bring groups together to meet new people and dance to different callers.
We invite any person from age 16 to 90 to attend our classes and learn to square dance and have a lot of fun.
