Bruce's Square Dance Lessons


Bruce's Square Dance Lessons

These days I spend several nights a week teaching square dance for a club I've created. It's called North Shore Squares and you can visit our web site by clicking on the club's name. We operate north of Chicago in Evanston, Skokie, Wilmette, Kenilworth and points north. It's a wonderful bunch of people and a huge amount of fun.

People Square Dancing

Square dancing reminds me of football, except without the cuncussions. You've got formations. You've got a team around you. You've got plays sent in by the caller. The challenge is, can you run your route successfully? Now, granted, the team is coed. But that's a feature. If you enjoyed geometry in high school, you'd get a kick out of this stuff.

I'd like to say square dancing is for everyone, but I'm not sure it is. It's challenging. But it's a wonderful world of music and energy and bright, focused people operating at 100% of their abilities. In September & January we offer free introductory lessons so you can see for yourself. You ought to give it a try.
