Club Information

The Sun City West Westerners Square Dance Club promotes fellowship, entertainment and sociability through square dancing and round dancing and by providing instruction in both activities.

Square and round dancing are fun!

Square dancing is a dance where groups of 8 people working as a team perform routines as directed by a person known as a caller. Square dancing is great physical and mental exercise and takes place in a friendly atmosphere where one meets people and makes new friends.   Although called “dancing” the basic step is walking and walking is one of the most natural things we do.  In square dancing there is no fear of men stepping on the toes of ladies. Just follow what the caller says to do; you’ll be surprised how easy it is!

Round dancing is choreographed couple dancing. A dance cuer (similar to a square dance caller) directs the dance; again, just follow what the cuer says to do. As in ballroom dancing, there are different rhythms, such as two-step, waltz, tango, jive, cha cha, etc.

The Westerners Square Dance Club meets at the RH Johnson Social Hall Thursday evenings all year, even in summer, for square dancing and Monday evenings during the cool season for round dancing.

No special clothing is required.
