Welcome to Square Dance. I am looking forward to teaching you the pleasure of modern square dance. My emphasis will be on having fun, and maybe a few cookies. In this blog I will be able to give you a review of the last lesson and a heads up for your next week.

October 14 - Lesson 4
Lesson 4 was mostly review, with two new figures introduced - Square Through and Grand Square.
Square Through is one of the most widely used figures in square dancing. We learned how to do a Square Through 4 (that being 4 hands around), Square Through 3 (that being 3 hands around), and Square Through 2 (that being, you guessed correctly, 2 hands around). Both the Saddlebrook Squares and Taminations websites would be worth visiting to further study Square Through.
We also learned Grand Square -- which is usually called as Sides Face Grand Square. In this figure all dancers are in motion at the same time, with each dancer completing an individual square with the larger square. The heads start by stepping forward into the center, and the side stepping backwards,
We will review Square Through and Grand Square as part of Lesson 5, and learn some new material as well.
Keep up the good work! Kirk Rockerbie
