Just for Students

All students are welcome to browse our compilation of useful information to square dance students while you are learning to dance.  Our instructor will be Stephen Cole, who is an active caller for multiple clubs and dances in the area.  We are adding a "Lessons Blog" where you will find names and descriptions of the calls introduced each session.  Check it out HERE.

Student Level Dances

During the months when most clubs host lessons, there are special "Student Level" dances.  These special dances are when all students are welcome and encouraged to participate.  All the dances will be at an appropriate level for students.  Check out the Mt. Baker Council listing for student level dances at Samena Squares and other local area clubs to try out your new moves.


Traditional square dance clothing is NOT required at square dances, especially for students.  Women are welcome to wear a skirt and blouse, and men wear any shirt and slacks.  Some women prefer "prairie skirts" which are usually long, loose skirts so you can move around easily.

If you do want to start working on your traditional square dance outfits, there are 2 local stores that are both excellent places to shop.

Petticoat Junction is located in Lynnwood, WA.  Their website is www.PetticoatJct.com.  They have a very nice store which is open regular hours, as well as an excellent website.  Drop in any time.  Their sales people have always been very helpful.

Students, this page is for you, so if you think of any information or questions that we should answer here for you, please don't hesitate to email us.
