Square dancers mix it up

-A A +A

The Mountain Mixers Square Dance Club of Los Alamos will offer Basic Square Dance lessons on Sundays from 4-6 p.m. this fall. The classes will be at the Los Alamos Sheriff’s Posse Lodge, 650 North Mesa Road.  
Square dancing is easy and fun. No special skills or previous dance experience are required. You do not need to wear special clothes; jeans are fine. Couples, families and singles are welcome. Anyone from the age of 9 to 99 can have fun doing it.
The lessons will begin with a free light supper and introductory lesson from 3-5 p.m. Sept. 12. The classes will run for 12 weeks.
Square dancing consists of about 50 basic moves which are taught and practiced during the classes. That means you only have to learn four moves a week. Rich Stewart is a patient teacher and reviews the class every week.  
Square dance is a folk dance with four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square. Square Dancing emerged from the folk dancing of the New England Settlers. Henry Ford and his wife Clara Bryant were passionate about square dancing and helped make it part of every public school’s physical education program. In 1944, Ford decided he wanted a radio show that would have dances and discussion of the dances.
