We are very fortunate to have nationally recognized Craig Abercrombie teaching our lessons again this year. The class is sponsored by R Square D Square Dance Club.
Our class sessions began on Wednesday evening, January 3, 2018. They are held weekly at the Kelso Senior Center (click for map) located at 106 NW 8th Ave, Kelso, WA 98626 on Wednesday evenings. They include: a Plus session from 6:30 to 7:30, a Basic Square Dance session from 7:30 - 8:30, and a Mainstream Square Dance session from 8:30 - 9:30. No previous experience is required for the "basic" session. The first two lessons of each session were "open" to new dancers, meaning you could begin lessons at either of the first two weeks. After that, the lessons were closed to "new" students, as we began to teach additional movements which required the students to know the basics that are 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 and Roy Rogers 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. Exception, children ages 10-16 must have participating parents. Dress Casual. Come and have a good time!
