FREE Introduction to Square Dance program on Sundays in August

If you have always wanted to learn how to square dance, here is your chance. The Farmers and Charmers Square Dance Club will be hosting a free Introduction to Square Dance program on Sundays in August (Aug. 6, 13, 20 and 27) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Wilkinson Multipurpose Center in Northridge, California.

The Introduction to Square Dance program is an easy and very social activity which can help get you and your friends and family off the couch. In less than an hour, Dale Hoppers, our professional caller, will teach you the basics of modern square dancing and have you dancing to a variety of music. Members of the Farmers and Charmers, including recent graduates of the nine-month square dancing class, will be on hand to help.

There are eight dancers in one “square” and you will interact with everyone in your square. And the squares will change throughout the lesson, so you will be dancing with different people throughout the evening. You can come to one of the programs or all four. They will all be different.

Square Dancing is a non-smoking, non-alcoholic activity for ALL ages, meaning parents and grandparents can learn and dance with their children and grandchildren and have fun as a family.

Between the square-dancing tips, Dale Hoppers also will be teaching some line dancing. And there will be free refreshments.

The Wilkinson Multipurpose Center is at 8956 Vanalden Ave. in Northridge.
