If you have not had the opportunity to dance progressive squares, you need to attend this session. In Progressive Squares, you move around the dance floor from square to square following the callers lead.
Caller: Jack Palddys
Sicilian Circles are square dancing with four dancers at a time. You progress around the circle dancing with all couples in the circle. You would be surprised at how many calls can be done in this formation! Come give it a try!
Caller: Andy Allemao
If you are interested in learning something different other than just dancing in squares, then maybe Hex might be the thing for you. In Hex there are six couples, with three of them as Head Couples and three of them as Side Couples. It takes the simple calls you already know and applies a new traffic pattern to them to make them work in Hexagons.
Caller: Buddy Weaver
Kaleidoscope Squares are several squares danced inside of each other. If you have not tried it yet, now is the time! This is something that is neat just to sit and watch.
Callers: Scott Brown, Shawn Brown, & Lisa Minton
You are asking yourself, "What are they up to now?" Come find out! This Clinic will be taught by the Callers who attended the Caller "Dancing Shenanigans" Session. This session is for those who are interested in dancing "differently" and participating in some fun games, while dancing.
Six Couple Rectangles
Caller: Curt Braffet
Have you ever danced in a six couple rectangle? Join this session to see for yourself that rectangles can be just as fun as dancing in a regular four-couple square.
