Mississippi Squares is built on fun and fellowship, with
an active community involvement. It is a member of
Ontario Square and Round Dance Association (EOSARDA). The
dance program follows the Modern Western Square Dancing
definitions as described by
Callerlab at three skill levels: Basic, Mainstream
and Plus. This style of dancing is popular worldwide.
The club is
very active in dance lessons and the recruitment
of new dancers at the basic level. To this end the format
on Tuesday nights is one of alternating Basic-Teach, Mainstream-Teach
and Full-Mainstream tips. Tuesday dances are always located
at Brunton Hall. We regularly
have 5 – 6 squares dancing.
Come out for a great evening!
We are based
in Carleton Place, Ontario, and draw our membership from
the surrounding area including Smiths Falls, Almonte,
Carp, Arnprior, Pakenham, Kanata, Stittsville, Richmond,
Munster and Lanark. We are only a short drive from
integration of new dance classes with the mainstream group
has, since its inception, proven to be very beneficial
for new dancers.
Dancing at the
Plus level is held regularly on Friday evenings with
a Full-Plus program and Plus-Teach reviews.
PLUS dancers enjoy the fast pace of our Full-Plus tips
as well as the teching reviews. If you have not danced
for a while, you will enjoy the Plus-Teach reviews.
You can call ahead to verify
the dance location for the Friday dances, but this is
not always necessary.
