Traditional Square Dancing in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Always with Live Old-Time Music!
This series of participatory dances is held on six afternoons on the first Sunday of the month. Drawn from various regional square-dance traditions, the dances are those that fit well to the "southern-style" old-time music that is featured. In addition to four-couple squares, we sprinkle in some big-set circle dances and Appalachian flatfoot (clogging) solo dancing.
Everyone is welcome. No experience is necessary, and you do not need to bring a partner with you. All dances are taught, although it is recommended that new dancers arrive early for the easiest dances and most complete instructions. No special attire is required; simply wear clothing that is comfortable for dancing. (Our hall is air-conditioned.) Please bring a pair of clean, non-marking shoes to help preserve our dance floor.
We participate in AACTMAD's New Dancer Program.
