Once you become practiced and familiar with the movements, there are dances most any night of the week in Harris County Churches and Community Centers, so you can find a dance to fit your schedule. You can also find Square Dances to attend while visiting other Cities, States and Countries. We have danced with people from many backgrounds and countries, even people who have been in outer space. Which two people who went to Space in a shuttle used to Square Dance at Rice University? How many people, from how many countries will attend the National Square Dance Convention just for fun? What is our link? We are having fun, getting exercise and know how to Grand Square, Do-Si-Do, and many other Square Dance calls.
