Boots In Squares @ Palm Springs Pride Nov. 3rd 2019

Boots in Squares is one of the top three largest clubs in the IAGSDC (International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs) as well as one of the fastest growing. Classes are open to everyone even if you have two left feet you should give it a try.

We attract a very diverse mix of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Straight dancers. We offer a friendly environment that is perfect for socializing, making new friends and of course dancing. You can be single or partnered. If you have a partner bring them with you. We supply experience dancers to assist your learning. We have no dress code and suggest you wear comfortable shoes.

This is not the type of square dancing you may have participated in your school days. This is a high energy group of fun loving dancers. We have added flourishes to the old school square dancing turning it into modern western dancing.

Classes are held at the Cathedral City Community (Senior) Center at 37-171 West Buddy Rogers Ave, across Hwy 111 from City Hall and the Mary Pickford Theater. Come and join us for fun nights, good friends, and easy exercise.
We hope to see you soon.
