What’s the Best Way for Billings to Celebrate Square Dancing Day?
That's right, it's time to get your boots on, because today (11/29) is Square Dancing Day in the United States. If you're unfamiliar with square dancing, it's a form of folk dancing where four pairs of dancers are arranged in a square, with one pair on each side of the square facing the middle. If you've seen square dancing before but always wondered where you can learn in Billings, I think I may have the answer for you.
Learn from the Yellowstone Square Dance Council
Billings has a dedicated group of square dancers that can teach you everything you need to know, and they hold dances all the time between October and April every year. According to their website, the Yellowstone Square Dance Council (YSDC) was created to, "...spotlight square dancing in Billings which includes the folk dancing instructions for square dancing and round dancing."
On top of providing lessons for new dancers, the YSDC also has a few dance clubs for members that involve different levels of dancing ranging from beginner to advanced, which they call Plus, and even round dancing in their Silhouettes Club. Regardless of your skill level, there's something for you.
What's Coming Up from YSDC?
Beginner classes start again in January through the Checkerboards Club. If you want to check out some of the other more advanced dances, the Christmas Dance is this Saturday, December 3rd at 7 p.m. The cost is $8 per person; you can find more details on their website or by clicking the flyer link here.
If you've ever wanted to try square dancing, this is the perfect place to learn, and you'll find that it's incredibly social. You may meet new friends and have a ton of fun along the way.
