During this 12-week class you will learn the basic square dance movements and how to take direction from a “caller”. Square Dancing is an excellent way to meet new people, exercise, and have fun at the same time!

A square dance is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square. The various square dance movements are based on the steps and figures used in traditional folk dances and social dances from many countries. In most American forms of square dance, the dancers are prompted or cued through a sequence of steps by a caller to the beat of music.

Please note: Attendees will need to attend all classes to receive the greatest benefit from the instruction. Each class builds upon prior classes.

Please wear comfortable shoes!

Ron Reardon became a square dance caller in 1976 and is currently a member of the Suncoast Callers Association and the Central Florida’s Callers Association. Ron has called for over 15 clubs in Florida and across the nation. Additionally, he has called for three National Square Dance Conventions and multiple Square Dance cruises. Ron and his wife Sue currently reside in Zephyrhills, Florida.

During this 12-week class you will learn the basic square dance movements and how to take direction from a “caller”. Square Dancing is an excellent way to meet new people, exercise, and have fun at the same time!

A square dance is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square. The various square dance movements are based on the steps and figures used in traditional folk dances and social dances from many countries. In most American forms of square dance, the dancers are prompted or cued through a sequence of steps by a caller to the beat of music.

Please note: Attendees will need to attend all classes to receive the greatest benefit from the instruction. Each class builds upon prior classes.

Please wear comfortable shoes!

Ron Reardon became a square dance caller in 1976 and is currently a member of the Suncoast Callers Association and the Central Florida’s Callers Association. Ron has called for over 15 clubs in Florida and across the nation. Additionally, he has called for three National Square Dance Conventions and multiple Square Dance cruises. Ron and his wife Sue currently reside in Zephyrhills, Florida.
