Friday Square Dance



The Main Street Strollers are currently working through ​​some changes including a new night  and a new place to dance. We are planning to start things back up starting August 13th at 7:00pm at the Veterans Memorial Building located at 130 Placerville Drive (next to the fairgrounds). We will dance in the East Room which may be accessed from the upper parking lot and through the double doors.


We will be closely watching for any new COVID restrictions much as other clubs are doing, so check back to see if we need to go dark due to State and/or County restrictions that could be imposed.

New to Square Dancing? Square dancing is a great way to meet people, relax, and relieve built-up stress.  Enjoy music and exercise all while challenging yourself and having fun at the same time!  Modern square dance is easy to learn and its lots of fun!  If you can walk, you can dance...

Square dancing starts with eight dancers (four couples) arranged in a square pattern. The dancers are all prompted (cued) by a caller through a sequence of patterns or steps to music. Many square dance patterns are unique, fun, and challenging; and the dancers never know the exact sequence of steps the caller will call ahead of time. Think of it as a puzzle danced to music. Its a great way to exercise your mind and your body!!


Modern square dance has re-invented itself to fit today's lifestyle. Singles, couples, and families will all enjoy new friendships.  Modern square dance attire has changed too, and women often wear jeans, prairie skirts, western, or square dance clothing. And the music has changed where you'll often find a place to dance the night away with a variety of tunes from country to rock and roll.
