Cascade Crossfires Square Dance Lessons and Workshops

Square Dance calls are divided into several groups.  The first three programs together are called Mainstream Dance and most square dances use only this set of calls.  The fourth program of Square Dance calls is called Plus Dance.  Additional programs are also defined but rarely encountered. Cascade Crossfires is a Plus Dance club.

 

Our lessons & workshops are held at the Sammamish Valley Grange, 14654 148th Ave NE, Woodinville, WA 98072.

Our dances will be held at the Juanita Community Club, 13027 100th Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98034 unless otherwise noted.

 

All lessons and workshops are $7 per person or one punch on the club punch card. The punch card is avaiIable to members and students only and is valid for lessons and workshops.

 

Plus Square Dance Lessons

Plus Square Dance lessons began October 2nd, 2017 and continue most Monday evenings through the end of January, 2018. Lessons are from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.

 

Plus Workshops for dancers who have completed Plus Lessons

Plus workshops are offered from 7:30pm to 9:00pm most Mondays after lessons finish for the year. Workshops began on February 1, 2017 resume in February and will continue through the summer, until lessons begin in October. We go “dark” in August.

Note: An “Awesome Plus*” all-position workshop is offered prior to all regular Monday lessons and workshops, from 6:30 to 7:30pm (6:30-7:00pm prior to Extravaganzas).

 

Workshop Extravaganzas

Our Workshop Extravaganzas are special monthly workshops, held in place of ongoing Monday lessons or workshops. Extravaganzas are usually held on the 4th Monday with Susan Morris & Stephen Cole calling.

We start our Extravaganzas with Awesome Plus at 6:30-7:00pm, followed by Plus 7:00-9:00pm and a “No-Hands” challenge tip. Extravaganzas are plus dancing only; we don’t round dance at workshops. Most dancers come in casual clothes. NOTE: Extravaganzas listed as Plus “Floor” Level will use calls already introduced in lessons and will take experience level of the participants into account when calling.

*    Plus workshops are dedicated to improving the dancers’ understanding of Plus moves and different ways to execute the move (e.g Crossfire from a column vs Crossfire from a line).

       Awesome Plus is dedicated to understanding Plus movements from different positions, challenging combinations and expanding on the understanding for execution of the moves.

 

NOTE: The Crossfires are DARK the month of August, 2018, and September 3, 2018.
