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

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, 25-SEP-2014 and runs through early January.
This class continues with additional Mainstream/Plus
lessons in the twelve week Winter session from early
January through April. 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 9:30 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
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.
Reserve a spot in our next class! Call 508- 366-1218
and leave your name and contact information. The
registration fee for classes can be paid in advance or on
your first class night.
Come and Join the Fun
Our Square Dance classes are intended for teaching
adults to dance. Teenagers are also welcome. Younger
children are welcome to learn square dancing while
accompanied by their parents. In all cases, the learning
experience will be better if you have a regular dance
partner to practice with.
