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 will cover mostly the same material so new students can join on any of the three nights.

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.

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.
