Free introductory square dance lessons are being offered by Connecticut’s favorite caller Bill Mager this September 19, 26 and October 3 at the Powder Mill Barn, 32 South Maple Street, Enfield from 7 to 9 pm. Hosted by the Square Wheels Square Dance Club, these lessons introduce square dancing to new dancers. As a caller, Bill is energetic, interesting, fun to listen to and challenges the dancers as they move through the patterns.
As explained by Bill, square dancing reflects the current times. The music is contemporary. There are no dress requirements. Square dancers benefit by learning new skills in a social setting. Singles are welcome.
Bill Mager is a square dance caller/instructor and recording artist with over 30 years of experience. He has called dances all over the country, recorded and produced several records of square dance music.
See you in a square.
There’s truly nothing out there like it.
Where else are you going to get to spend an afternoon, an evening, or even a weekend smiling, laughing, sharing good times, and exercising all at the same time?
Leave the outside world in the parking lot. On the dance floor it doesn’t matter what you do out “there.” On the floor, there’s just one thing to do: have fun.
Modern Square Dance lessons have been carefully developed to emphasize body flow, actual dancing, and fun.
You’ll be dancing the first time you’re with us.
Music: Anything with a beat! Rock! Pop! Broadway Show Tunes! Country!
And did we mention the exercise? You can easily get in 3000 steps during an evening of dancing.
Everyone is welcome — singles or couples. We have experienced partners for you if you don’t have one. While traditional square dancing called for a lady and a gent, modern dancers are free to choose their dancing gender. Many dancers learn both parts.
No special equipment or dress is required. Comfortable shoes and casual clothes are all you need to participate.
