Square dancers have enjoyed friendship set to music for more than sixty continuous years. The club was formed in 1951 when more than 160 people joined the square dancing rage that was sweeping the country. Although much smaller now, members still enjoy the many social and health benefits of dancing. Join the Red Deer Square Dance Club at their next dance and see for yourself.
Where else can you walk three to five miles with an activity so full of music and laughter that you don’t realize you are exercising? Although you still see full skirts with crinolines swirling around the floor, the trend is towards more casual dress.
"When Lady Gaga’s Poker Face or AC/DC’s Highway to Hell comes through the loudspeakers, newcomers might be forgiven for thinking they’ve arrived at a nightclub instead of a square dance. But the modern music that can sometimes be heard at Red Deer Square Dance Club get-togethers is just the latest Baby Boomer innovation." Courtesy of the Red Deer Advocate.
Dances are held on the second and fourth Saturday of the month at Gaetz Memorial United Church with club members and guests dancing to a variety of guest callers. The club hosts special dances throughout the year. Click to view our full Event Calendar.
