September 2021 to May 2022
Square Dance Program
Our club normally has a Plus dance every Sunday evening. In addition, we will be starting Mainstream classes in September of 2021 and January of 2022. Our dances and lessons are normally held in our beautiful MountainView Ballroom. (Scroll down for directions.) Following are the details for our Sunday dances and our Thursday Mainstream classes.
Most every Sunday we will have a Plus dance from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. If you are not on our SaddleBrooke Squares’ group email list, you should call ahead to verify we’ll actually be dancing the evening you want to dance with us and that our venue has not changed. Call any of the following club officers:
Richard Martin (248) 417-9157
Elaine Beeble 503 705-7584
Larry Hays (775) 772-0822
We have no dress requirements. (Well, actually, you do have to wear clothes). Dress casual or wear square dance attire, your choice.
On a trial basis, we will also be including Round Dancing in our Sunday club dances from September through December of 2021. We will have a single Round Dance (versus the normal two) between our square dance tips. If you have been looking for a place Round Dance, we would love to have you join with us.
Covid-19 Precautions (VERY IMPORTANT READ)
*Although we do not require our participants to be vaccinated, it is the best protection you can give yourself and your fellow dancers against Covid -19. If you have opted to not to be vaccinated, we respect that decision. However, now that the vaccines are getting full FDA approval, we encourage you to reevaluate the benefits of the Covid vaccination, both for yourself and your fellow dancers, especially in light of the Delta variant.
* Both vaccinated and non-vaccinated dancers can be unknown carriers of the Covid virus, and you should be aware of this risk when making your decision to participate in any square dance.
*Needless to say, if you are not feeling well, running a fever or experiencing any mild Covid-like symptoms, you should remain at home.
*We provide hand sanitizer and request that everyone use it after every tip.
*You are also encouraged (but not mandated) to wear a medical mask when dancing with us. Medical masks provide an extra layer of protection for yourself, as well as others.
*If after dancing with us, you experience any Covid-like symptoms, please get tested for Covid- 19. If that test shows you have contracted Covid-19, you must notify our club (any of the above officers) ASAP, as we maintain a contact list of our dancers and, if needed, we will notify everyone on that list that one of our dancers has tested positive for Covid-19.
Hold Harmless Agreement
Everyone who dances with us is required to sign a one-time “Hold Harmless Agreement” which basically says you will not to bring a lawsuit against our club, its members, callers or providers of our venue should you be injured or become ill as a result of dancing with us.
Our normal dance fees are $6.00 pp for our dues-paying members and $8.00 pp for others. (Special dances may be more.) If you think you will dance with us again in the future, you may want to become a dues-paying member. Doing so will also put you on our club’s group mailing list. Dues are $20 pp per calendar year and are payable at the door.
