Class Information

The Current Class

There was a free open house on Saturday, 2021-09-11. The Tuesday classes began on 2021-09-21 with the first of three introductory sessions. Those sessions covered mostly the same material so new students can join on any of the three nights.

The classes are on hiatus during Thanksgiving through New Year’s holidays and will resume on Tuesday, 2022/02/01.

Coming soon: a page that shows the class progress report (dates, what was taught, etc.).

Resources

There is a website with videos showing people demonstrating square dance calls. There are two pages that organize the videos different ways:

The first link has a list of videos and which calls are demonstrated in each one.
https://videosquaredancelessons.com/lessons/

The second link lists the square dance calls in alphabetical order and has a link to the video with its demonstration.

The Taminations web site shows animations and definitions of all square dance calls from Basic 1 through Challenge C-3B. There are also apps for iOS, Android and Kindle. The apps do not require an internet connection after they are installed. That is a big benefit at the Milmay Fire Hall, where cellular service is spotty.
Note: lessons at Rainbow Squares cover only Basic 1 through Plus, the levels danced by the club. Students should not be intimidated by the Advanced or Challenge calls! Disregard them.
