Virtual Square & Round 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 “real” 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 by two couples (most of the Mainstream level moves). We encourage all local square dancers to attend the level of their choice. This is a great way to keep up your dancing skills and get exercise during the current restrictions on social gatherings. The Virtual Round Dance program provides links to upcoming and previous dances.
