Class OverviewWe hold a class each year, usually starting in October. This is a fast-paced class which, unlike most in the area, emphasizes All Position Dancing (APD) from the very start. This class is suitable for complete beginners, but may also be of interest to current dancers seeking more experience with APD as well as returning dancers who want a complete review of all of the calls from Basic, Mainstream and Plus.
Notable Features of this Class
ScheduleThe class meets Sunday evenings from 7pm to 9pm. We held introductory sessions, for people with no previous experience with square dancing, at the beginning of October. Since then, we have been introducing new calls each week, building on what was taught in earlier weeks. At this point we are most of the way through the Plus list, but people who are currently dancing Plus (or previously danced Plus and still mostly remember the calls) may still be able to join the class -- let us know if you are interested and we can discuss your situation. Because this is a fast-paced class, after the intro sessions regular attendance is expected.
Starting in November, most weeks we have also been offering an additional review session starting at 6:30pm; this is open to all class members, but is especially recommended to anybody who missed the previous week. Following the class session, starting at 9pm, we have tips for experienced dancers (which class members are welcome to stay and watch).
The cost (after the intro sessions) is $10/week/person, with a discount available for pre-payment.
The number of weeks varies from year to year, depending on the mix of students.
LocationThe class is currently meeting at the Black Community Services Center on the Stanford campus. Depending on availability of that facility, we may occasionally need to meet elsewhere - check the calendar on our home page for updates.
