Square Dance Classes

  Latest class flyer here

Sierra Hillbillies are pleased to offer classes in Social Square Dancing (SSD for short). In a little over two months you can go from no Square Dance experience whatsoever, to dancing at our monthly open dances and dancing with Square Dance clubs across the country.

Beginning instruction in SSD Square Dancing is currently offered three times a year. We offer our classes 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 8:30 p.m, followed by 30 minutes of dancing practice for past class graduates. All classes are at Valencia Meadows Park, 25671 Fedala Road, Valencia.

Tuition for the class is only $50.00, payable in advance to the City of Santa Clarita. Singles and couples are always welcome at the Sierra Hillbillies classes and dress is casual. "Angels" - experienced dancers who help ensure that the new dancers get to dance with people who already know the figures - are welcome from all clubs.
