Spartan Spinners Square Dance Club
The Spartan Spinners Square Dance Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of modern
western square dancing. Our goal is to spread the good will of square dancing and the fun and fellowship that
follows with club membership. The main condition for membership is to have dedicated oneself for a short time
to learn the mainstream steps of square dancing, and to be willing to participate in club activities.

When you visit our club dancing some Saturday night you will find various aged dancers. Age isn't a factor; you
might obserce teenagers as well as 80 year olds stepping to the music and calls. Between square dance tips you
could observe line dancing as well as round dancing (ball room style danced to cued moves).
Since we like to have fun and socialize as well as dance if you happen to visit on one of our special dances such as
Halloween or Hobo dance you might observe some strange outfits. To browse some photos from past dances, go to
the "All Photo Pages" link at the purple navigation bar on the left. That link will take you to a page with columns of
yearly dates. Click on any year and it will bring up yet another page that displays the names of dances during that
particular year such as the "Hobo Dance". Click on any of those dances and it will take you to photos from that
dance. Some dances have many photos while others have just a few. The photographers are having too much fun
to take pictures constantly.
You can always return to a previous page by back clicking your left arrow if there is no navigation link.
