year (2018) the Hillbillies have dramatically changed their
Beginning Square Dance instruction program. Instruction in the
68 Basic & Mainstream Calls will be offered twice
a year with
instruction in the 29 Plus calls offered once a year. This
approach is designed to create more opportunities to master the
basics of square dancing each year before moving on to intermediate
square dance lessons. Classes are offered through the City of
Santa Clarita Recreation & Community Services Department. You
can find our square dance classes described in the Santa Clarita
Seasons Magazine, or online at
http://www.santa-clarita.com/seasons under Adult Classes, then Dance Classes.
Classes are held on Tuesday nights from 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. with all classes at Valencia Meadows Park, 25671 Fedala Road, Valencia. The Level 1 beginner class starts August 21, 2018, for a period of 9 weeks for only $50.00, taking students through 35-40 Calls. The Level 1 beginning class is immediately followed on October 23, 2018, by an 8-9 week Level 2 class covering the remainder of the 68 Basic & Mainstream Calls. The Level 1 & Level 2 beginning classes will be offered again with a 9-week Level 1 class starting January 8, 2019; and an 11-week Level 2 class starting March 19, 2019. Intermediate square dance classes covering the 29 Plus Calls will be offered for 9 weeks starting June 11, 2019. The registration fee for each session of Level 1, Level 2 or Plus classes is $50.00, payable in advance to the City of Santa Clarita.
Singles as well as couples are always welcome at the Sierra Hillbillies classes and dress is casual. "Angels" - experienced dancers who ensure that the new dancers get to dance with people who already know the patterns - are definitely welcome from all clubs.
of the Sierra Hillbilliesí monthly dances feature alternating
Mainstream and Plus calls. Most clubs in California usually
dance at the Plus level, while clubs in the rest of the United
States primarily dance at the Mainstream level.
