New Dancer Package
If you are a new dancer who recently started dancing with a club in Sept or Oct. this package is designed for you. There are lessons at Harvest Hoedown, and dancing on Fri. and Sat. nights to help you along in your skills. There is a very special clothes closet just for you as well. Square dancers donate their lightly used items, for both men and woman, so come shop and take for FREE! There are dresses, skirts, blouses and petticoats for women, and shirts, slacks and ties for men. Some are matching outfits, so don’t miss out! Come early to get your shopping done to wear to the dance on Fri. night!
Intro to Square Dance
If you have never tried this activity now is the time! You will have one full afternoon to learn some of the calls, and you will be able to dance on Sat. evening with the rest of the group! There will be plenty of “Angels”, those experienced dancers, to help you along. Open to all ages, single or partners, it doesn’t matter, just come out and give it a try! There are many clubs in the area that you can then go into and learn more calls to be able to attend the many Saturday night dances in the Sacramento area.
Download the registration form here, or just come to Yuba City Fairgrounds for the “Intro to Square Dance” class on Sat. the 28th, at 1:00 PM. (Blast class on the schedule). Check in at the main hall, and we will take care of getting you registered, and direct you to the hall. Be sure and come early to get your registration in and make it to the class on time!
Come and camp out with other Rv’ers or tent campers for the weekend, and party with them before your class!
Square Dance 101
Participating in this all-day, interactive workshop. We’re offering members of our square dance community the opportunity to meet with other dancers and callers to share ideas to improve our activity. No experience needed—just a willingness to learn from other dancers or share your own ideas. Come in Thursday night for the Trail’s End Dance, then spend the day Friday interacting with other dancers.
This year’s focus will be on the utilization of Social Media to expand the awareness and popularity of square dancing. Whether you use free resources like e-mail, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, SnapChat, YouTube, Pinterest, Google+ and Linkedin, or you explore nominal cost alternatives like Meet-up and websites, we’ll share ideas and explore ways to remind the public that square dancing is still here and still amazing. We will use an open forum format with topic moderators. Everyone will be encouraged to share ideas, experiences, and challenges faced allowing the group to explore options that might prove successful in your own areas.
Individuals or groups create a Scare (square) Crow……you can put it near your RV or we can put it by the Plus Hall. Surprise judges will then decide which one is the best Square Crow, and the winner receives one free Harvest Hoedown ribbon for the following year.
Get your square together in a no holds bar mainstream tip. All featured callers will call this tip Saturday night a 7pm. Each square will have a judge watching them…..last square on the floor wins- prizes and Bragging Rights. Come join in the fun or just watch the fun!
This years theme is My Favorite Thing. Show off your favorite Square Dance outfit, or get your club involved with their “club outfit” Come join us Saturday at 12 noon for fun, fashion and door Prizes. Download flyer
