The Oakmont Squares have a lot to be thankful for this year. The club continues to buck the national trend of declining numbers. This fall the Oakmont Squares have grown to the point of often having three squares (that’s 24 dancers) on the floor at a time.
Then there’s the opportunity to dance without masks. The club has been confirming vaccine status since the reopening, and because the group is under 100 people who meet together on a regular basis, face masks are now optional.
The Oakmont Squares are also thankful for club caller Lawrence Johnstone who creates novel combinations of calls, tailors the moves to the level of the dancers and entertains with singing calls using various genres of music.
This year’s new class is now closed, but new classes begin periodically and will be announced in the future. Experienced dancers who may be thinking about joining the group are welcome to come dance at Mainstream Level. No partner is necessary since it is customary to switch partners often.
The Oakmont Squares meet Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM at the East Rec Center. Donation is $6 per person.
Come dance in a square and make a circle of friends. For information call Jenny at 707-367-2102.
