Every year the Hillbillies offer an nine-month-long series of Beginner's Square Dance Classes, which provide instruction in the 98 Basic, Mainstream and Plus Calls, or dance patterns. Classes are held every Tuesday night from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The cost is $63 for a series of 15 weekly 2-hour classes, offered by the City of Santa Clarita Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department. You can find this described in the Santa Clarita Seasons Magazine, or online at http://www.santa-clarita.com/seasons under Adult Classes, then Dance Classes. 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. Classes will be held at Valencia Meadows Park, 25671 Fedala Road, Valencia.
The 2017 class (2nd session) starts on January 10 and is held on Tuesdays. The beginner class starts in September for a period of 15 weeks for only $63 (this is a special introductory offer, which includes an extra five weeks of instruction free of charge), taking students through the Basic and most of the Mainstream calls in square dancing. For those who wish to continue, a second ten-week course is offered, beginning in January, advancing students through the Mainstream level and starting to learn Plus level calls. A third ten-week class starts after that, taking students through the remainder of the Plus level calls. Most clubs in the area usually dance at the Mainstream to Plus levels.
