Members of the High Country Squares look forward to the summer season of great dancing and new dancer lessons with caller Jim Park.

Pagosa Springs benefits enormously by having such an experienced and professional caller to grace our dances and beginner lessons.

Three free lessons

Beginner Western Square Dance lessons start on Monday, June 3. Classes go from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with Jim Park doing the teaching.

The first three classes are free and subsequent classes are $4 per person. The only requirement is to bring your left and right feet, your enthusiasm, and your sense of humor.

All classes are held at the PLPOA Clubhouse at 230 Port Ave.

If you have always wondered what it would be like to square dance, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to learn from one of the most experienced teachers in the United States. Singles are welcome and our square dancing “angels” will be there to dance with those who have no regular dancing partner.

The High Country Squares offers weekly dances, regional dances and a wonderful sense of community for local and visiting dancers.

Contact Jim Park, 731-9910, or Jim Hawkins, 731-2028, for more information.
