Here are a few websites that might be useful for reviewing the calls:

  1. Mainstream Call Definitions

  2. Taminations   

  3. Video Square Dance Lessons 

"Taminations" (free) app is available for download on both IOS and Android platforms.

SO MUCH FUN! On Monday (1/6/2020)  Reelers hosted the first of two "Intro" Square Dance nights. Attendance was through the roof! We had SIX squares on the floor! Our wonderful and patient teacher, Ed Crowley, taught THIRTEEN calls and everyone kept up just fine!

On Monday 1/13 we hosted our 2nd Free "Intro to Square Dance" night with similar great attendance.

Our Mainstream class is now well underway - we have 24 (!!!) enthusiastic students - including couples, singles and teens.

Reelers offers our Mainstream class every year, starting in January.

COST: $80 for adults. $40 (half-price) for repeating students, children under 18, and college students. We offer a minimum of 18 lessons so this is under $5 per class.

Classes are on Mondays and run into early June. 

7-9pm, at Ironia School in Randolph.
