New Dancers Class Information:

We are very fortunate to have nationally recognized Daryl Clendenin teaching our lessons again this year.  The class is sponsored by the Hoedowners Square Dance Club.

Our classes begin on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019.  They are held weekly at the Aloha Grange (click for map) located at SW 185th and TV Highway (behind Big Lots) on Tuesday evenings from 7 PM to 9 PM.  No previous experience is necessary.  The first two lessons (through September 17th) are "open" to new dancers, meaning you can begin lessons at either of the first two weeks.  After that, the lessons are closed to "new" students, as we began to teach additional movements which require the students to know the basics that were covered in the first two weeks.  Late start exceptions can be made for dancers with previous experience who want to resume dancing and/or are looking for a club.

Modern Square Dancing is a little different than Classic Square Dancing in that 1) there is no requirement for special attire, although traditional attire is welcomed, and 2) we dance to slightly different music.  We still hear Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, and Blake Shelton but we also dance to Bobby Darin, Elvis, Credence Clearwater Revival, the Beatles, and even The Baha Men ... Yes, The Baha Men!!  Square Dancing is good exercise, is a lot of fun, and is very social.

Everyone is Welcome.  Dress casual.  Come and have a good time!  Square Dancing is good exercise, and is a lot of fun.  After the lessons, you are invited to join us at Applebees at 185th and Walker Rd. for a bit of socializing.  Some of us have a glass of wine or beer and perhaps a light bite.   For more information email Chet: chetw@aracom.com, or call him at 503-647-2012 with your name and contact information.
