The calls and how they work
At a square dance, there is a caller who will call seven to eight “tips” in an evening. A “tip” consists of about five minutes of “hash” (free-style calls) and one “singing call.” The “singing call” is square dance calls to the tune of some defined song – could be an old song, a country song, or current music. The caller selects the songs and the hash calls for your enjoyment. Generally at a square dance, you can wear pretty much what you want to. Men usually wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Some women wear square dance outfits with crinolines, some wear prairie skirts, and some wear jeans. Few clubs have a dress code, so wear what is comfortable for you. Square dances, regardless of the hosting club, are great fun – high energy, fun-filled activity with lots of nice people. You will find yourself singing along with the caller, clapping your hands and moving to the music. You will find friends with others at the square dance, people who will enrich your life, while improving your health with excellent activity. Fun, fitness and friendship! That’s what square dancing is all about! Come to a dance soon!
