Square Dancing

What's it all about?

Community

You've never met a finer group of folks than our dancers. Pegasus Squares is part of a larger LGBTQ Square Dance family that hosts dances all over the country. The dance program is standardized so you will be able to travel anywhere and dance. Square Dancing is truly "Friendship set to Music!"

High-Energy Dancing

With all its moving, twisting, and turning, Modern Western square dancing provides more than the daily dose of heart- and bone-healthy physical activity. Remembering all the calls — from "Dosado" to "Allemande Left" — keeps the mind sharp, potentially staving off age-related memory loss.

Modern Music

Don't think square dancing means listening to "square" country music. Sure, we enjoy our hoe-downs! But square dance music is so much more. Practically any music can be used for square dancing. Come check out the tunes!

No Partner Required

Pegasus Squares has many couples in its membership, but as far as dancing is concerned, it is a singles club. You can "dance with the one what brung you" or with any of our dancers, many of whom can dance both the boy's and girl's parts!

Come as you are

No formal square dance attire is required! Our dress is extremely causal — shorts and T-Shirts are "de rigueur" in the hotter months!

Diversity

Pegasus Squares welcomes everyone without regard to race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Beginner Lessons

Join us for our open houses! Bring your friends!

Blast Classes

Once you see how much fun square dancing is at one of our two Open Houses, join us for 5 4‑hour sessions while we teach you the entire Basic and Mainstream levels! We call these "blast classes" since they teach you the beginning levels in a 5-week compressed timeframe (normally 15 weeks). There will be plenty of Angels (experienced dancers) to help you during lessons. We have found that these blast classes are a very effective way to bring you up to speed and on a path to a lifetime of fun and friendship set to music! You will be able to dance with Pegasus Squares or with any of the 1000s of other Modern Western Square Dance clubs in the US and abroad!
