Circle left - Swing your partner - Promenade

You already know plenty of square dance calls. You will be learning more each evening. Our class caller/teacher has taught hundreds of us to square dance.

We welcome couples, families, and singles. We recommend (but don't require) that you bring a partner to dance with. We encourage you to bring your friends along as well. We suggest comfortable footwear for all and skirts or slacks (jeans) for the ladies.

We dance at Scott Hall, Framingham, MA

All our classes are held in Scott Hall which is associated with the Unitarian Universalist First Parish Church at 24 Vernon Street - This is located on the west side of Edgell Road, approximately one quarter mile north of Route 9 in Framingham Center.

See our Map page for directions.

Square Dance Lessons

This is your opportunity to discover the fun of square dancing. If you agree that square dancing is for you, we will teach you the BASIC level of square dancing, in a two hour class on Thursday evenings.

The price for each of the two twelve week session in the September thru May seasons is just $70* per person. The Fall Introductory Basic/Mainstream level lessons started on Thursday, 28-SEP-2017 and runs through late December.  This class continues with additional Mainstream/Plus lessons in the twelve week Winter session from early January through late March. If there is sufficient interest, additional instruction will continue thru April and into May. Classes are on most Thursdays during the season and usually run 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

The Fairs 'n Squares subsidizes classes for beginners in order to expand the square dancing community and to share our enjoyment with others. The small fee charged helps to defray a portion of our costs for the dance hall and the dance instructor. The more people dancing, the more fun it is for all involved. Many of our experienced club members will join you in the class to provide additional support and encouragement.

*Note: some of the above information is from the prior year and will be updated by 31-AUG-2017 if there are changes.

Square Dancing - a World Wide activity

Each dance starts with four couples arranged on each side of a square. The caller directs the movement of the dancers by calling out the name of the next dance step to be performed: Dosido, Swing your partner, circle left, Promenade. Square dancers learn the movements associated with each of the 'calls'.

We offer Class Level Dances so that you can learn and practice  these movements. In addition to dancing at every session, you will also be learning more square dance calls and movements. The fun starts with the first class that you attend.
