Virtual Square Dancing

The Virtual Square Dance program uses the Zoom video conferencing software to allow a caller to call a square dance. The dancers are one “live” couple or an individual dancer with a “phantom” partner. That couple dances with a second “phantom” couple using the square dance calls that can be done in a two-couple formation (most of the Mainstream level moves). This is a great way to keep up your dancing skills and get exercise during the current restrictions on social gatherings.

Virtual Round Dances are also available, hosted by Mary and Bruce Nelson.
