Tailored to those who have had some square dance lessons in the past -- no matter how few or how long ago.
Want some home dancing?
A message from Buddy Weaver during the Covid 19 Shutdown of In-Person Dancing
Hello dance friends,
I know there is no square dancing for anybody right now so I produced the first three in a series of recordings for ONE-COUPLE DANCING. This is for everyone to keep active at home. These three dances will give you 15 minutes of activity so play them twice for your 30 minute workout. Switch places with your partner and dance them again.
I'll add some each week. Here is the link to where you can find the dance tips. They are free to download or stream.
Happy dancing from Buddy Weaver

Keep Checking Back...
We hope to be dancing soon!
Other New Graduate Level Dance Opportunities:
If you are a graduate needing extra practice to help to prepare you for dances, or you are just a bit rusty, you may consider...
Look for alternating dances - Mainstream and Plus.
- Classes are held at all levels
Attending Class Workshops
- PSDA puts on class workshops at different times of the year. These classes take place in Vista and are taught by various callers. Hearing different callers helps because you may hear the calls in different order than your original class instructor.
Attend an ongoing class and help
- As a graduate you may volunteer to help at The Wranglers Class on Thursday nights for free.
- Contact other clubs in the area for their policies on helping in their classes.
Try taking a class for a second time
