Square Dancing Classes & Parties

MODERN SQUARE DANCE PARTIES held on Sundays (Lower Level OSCC) No experience, no partner, no dance-ability, and no special attire (well maybe closed toe shoes) are necessary. The ability to listen and move, know your right from your left, and a willingness to smile and laugh are the only requirements that make you a prime candidate for these events. It’s perfect for families (middle schoolers and up are encouraged to join in), empty nesters or a date night for couples, as well as singles looking to meet new people. During these festivities, Phil Rarick, a caller and instructor for over forty years, will teach some basic moves that will have you moving and grinning in short order. Modern Square Dancing enjoys a wide variety of music from Country to Pop, Broadway to Jazz, Old Standards to Contemporary, there is something for every taste. There will be light refreshments and lots of opportunities to take breaks and chat with friends. There is no cost and no pre-registration for these events. Just come and join us. SQUARE DANCING CLASSES held on Thursday Evenings (Lower Level OSCC) These 16 weekly lessons will initiate participants into the world of fun, social engagement, music, and exercise that is Modern Square Dancing. Phil Rarick has been a square dance caller and instructor for over forty years and is passionate about the activity. Unlike other kinds of dance, square dancing does not require a particular sense of rhythm or poise but only the ability to listen, concentrate and move. Phil will teach and lead you through about fifty moves that comprise Social Square Dancing (SSD), the foundational level of the activity, so you can dance with other Chicago area dancers (or around the world). There are many physical, mental, and emotional benefits to square dancing. $100 for the class and learning aids. (8 person minimum for the class.) Call 630-554-5602 to register. Or register on-line
