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.

Our First Fly-In

March 3-5, 2017

Scoot Back to Big D

Pegasus Squares hosted its first fly-in a few months ago. It was successful beyond our wildest dreams with over 100 dancers in attendance1 We plan on hosting it again in March, 2019. In the meantime, check out our old web site Scoot Back to Big D to get a sense of our first Fly-In weekend, where we were joined by other local clubs and square dancers from across the country for 15 hours of dancing featuring world-class callers!
