What is square dancing?

Modern square dancing is a physical activity where groups of 8 people (a square) work together to execute sets of dance actions (calls) that the caller strings together. The caller makes up the sequence of calls on the fly, so the dancers have to interpret the call and work together in real time. The best way to understand square dancing is to watch some of it.

Tech Squares teaches square dance classes each semester. Each class runs for about 13 weeks, and teaches Plus level dancing, which is danced at Tech Squares and many other clubs worldwide. Find out more about our class or join our low-volume mailing list, which will get just a few messages before the start of class once a semester.
