Modern music, as easy as walking, casual attire, fun, friendship and a great easy fitness activity!!

This is a 12 - 14 week program designed to teach 50 basic square dance moves such that the dancers can more quickly attend dances, feel comfortable with their ability and have lots of fun. A great review of the basics as we return from 18 months of no dancing! It is also designed to have extended applications - once the dancers are comfortable with the first 50, the caller can then introduce the calls danced from different positions in the square. The purpose of this program is to attract more people into our activity with a shorter learning time - as it will take no time at all for the new dancers to be out and dancing.  It is designed for couples, singles and families AND  to be a social activity as well as a dancing one.


Social Square Dancing Program will be followed (see description below)

Every Wednesday evening  @7:00 pm at Bay Laurel Elementary School, 24740 Paseo Primario, Calabasas, CA 91302.  Initial plan is to dance outdoors in the parking lot.  All state mandated protocols to be followed.


Check back frequently as details could change depending on the situation with COVID 


Paul, a third generation Californian, first became interested in square dancing during his senior year in high school when he took a beginners class with the Conejo Swingers, a teen club in Thousand Oaks. Although the class started in February 1972, a scant ten month’s later he decided to try his hand (voice?) at calling, and started a calling class the following December.
Dancing has always been an important part of his life. Over the years this has included participation in international folk dancing, square dancing, round dancing, international competitive ballroom dancing, clogging, contra and country western. Fred Astaire would be impressed. 
Presently he teaches classes for the Tinseltown Squares of Los Angeles, as well as calling for dance engagements as far away as Cleveland, Ohio, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and Dijon,
France (Love their mustard).
Paul’s decision to join the Trail Dusters “family” is a wonderful reunion. Paul actually called for the Trail Dusters some 20 years ago. We welcome him back with open arms and are thrilled that he will be our caller and teacher.
