Welcome to Square & Round Dancing in South Paris & Norway, Maine

Square dancing is a fun and healthy activity you can do all year long. It takes no experience to visit a workshop and see what the fun is all about. New beginner classes start Wednesday, September 7, 2016 (see Flyer). Visiting experienced dancers are welcome to join in at any workshop.

Ray Hilton of Saco, Club Caller for the Swinginā€™ Bears, will hold the classes on Wednesday evenings each week except during school vacations and if there is a snow day for the school. They are part of the Adult Education program at the Oxford Hills Middle School. The lessons will be from 6:30 ā€“ 7:45 PM. Workshops for experienced dancers of various levels who will be assisting in the squares will be from 7:45 ā€“ 9:00 PM.

  • Square Dances - Square Dances are $7.00 per dancer, the second Saturday of each month (subject to change on availability of the school). No dances in August or January. (See our dance schedule for details.) Dances include Round Dancing as well as Square Dancing, featuring club and guest callers and cuers. Non-dancers are welcome to watch free of charge.
