Lac-A-Do Hall square Dance 2Olympia Area Square Dancers are sponsoring a Free Introduction to Square Dancing on Thursday September 10 at 6:30 p.m. This is your chance to try a fun evening of square dancing at no cost.  You’ll be dancing right away – no experience necessary.

Square dancing gives you a wonderful physical and mental workout. And you’ll have a great time.

The Intro to Square Dancing is held at Lac-A-Do Hall, 1721 46th Ave NE, Olympia. Couples, singles, and families are welcome, ages 10 and up. Almost everyone can learn to square dance. The only people who may find that lessons are too fast-paced are those with moderate to severe developmental disabilities, or who cannot walk for 10-15 minutes at a time.

You’ll find friendly people and good music at Lac-A-Do Hall. The Olympia area is known throughout the U.S. for its popular and successful square dance program. The seven square and round dance clubs in Olympia all dance at the hall. The Olympia dancers represent all ages and all walks of life. They dance to many different types of music including rock and roll, country and pop.

Olympia Area Square Dancers also sponsor square dance lessons, starting Thursday September 17 at 6:30 p.m. This social, family-friendly class gets your body and mind moving in a fun atmosphere.  By the end of ten weeks you will have learned the basics of modern square dancing – the same moves used in thousands of square dance club dances and dance events you can visit throughout the world. You’ll be dancing at the very first lesson. Members of all the local square dance clubs will join in to help you learn.

We like to say that square dancing is “Fun and friendship set to music.” It’s a great way to get out, get moving, and make new friends.

There will be a few more Free Introductions and 10-week sessions of square dance lessons throughout the year. For more information, visit Or call Ed at 360-352-2662 or Nancy at 360-438-1284.
