Dance 2 - North (Boys) Gym


Unlike many dance activities Modern American Square Dancing has no free form or memorized routines. Adult & Teen participants work as a 4 Couple (8 person) team/square. All moves are taught and then extemporaneously used by the caller to choreograph dances within the dancers capability. Dancers get physical & mental exercise executing the caller's instructions.

Age Suitability: Adults and Teens. Not suitable for children under 12.
