Many thanks to caller Carl Ballou for sharing the fun of square dancing with Oakmonters and grandchildren during Grandparents’ Week 2021. Square dancing has a long history of bringing people together to enjoy movement, music and friendship.
The Oakmont Squares meet every Tuesday from 7:00-9:00 PM, usually on a wonderful wood floor at Upper West Rec. Sadly, both upstairs and downstairs have been severely damaged from a broken sprinkler, and it may be months before all is resolved. Please contact club president Jenny for temporary location while West Rec Center is being repaired and for an update on public health recommendations/mandates. Since square dancing is inherently social, the club also requires proof of vaccination at the time of your visit.
Club caller Lawrence Johnstone has been using the “red light-green light” system, alternating dances for beginners with dance tips for the more experienced dancers so that everyone gets to dance at a comfortable level.
Come dance in a square and make a circle of friends. For information call Jenny at 707-367-2102.
