About Our Square Dance Program

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.

Sunday Dances

Time

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
Rick Beeble (503) 475-7001

Attire

We have no dress requirements. (Well, actually, you do have to wear clothes).  Dress casual or wear square dance attire, your choice.

Round Dancing

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)

*In leu of the standard square dance practice of dancers forming their own squares, SaddleBrooke Squares normally (but not always) uses a computer program to assign people to squares for each tip.  We also do not ask participants if they have been vaccinated.  That means you could be dancing with both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in your square at our dances. 

*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.

* 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.

Dance Fees

Our normal dance fees are $6.00 pp for members and guests on our club email list and $8.00 pp for others.  (Special dances may be more.)

Location of Mountainview Ballroom

The address of our MountainView Ballroom is 38759 MountainView Blvd, Tucson, AZ. When you arrive, enter where you see the large overhead canopy and turn left.  You’ll see the dance floor on your right, about 200 feet down the hall.
