Did you know that square dancing is the official folk dance of Colorado?  Did you know that square dancers dance to a variety of music, including, but not limited to, Big Band, Classical, Rock and Roll, Disco, 50’s, and Country music?  If you answered no, you just learned something new about square dancing.  

Scootbacks is a mainstream and plus modern square dance club which also features round dancing. We normally dance on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from September through April. On 5th Fridays, we often have an all plus dance. This season has now ended we resume hosting dances in September.

We begin each evening with pre-rounds at 7:30 PM (7:15 when Becky, Dave. Justin or John cue). Our square dance program begins at 8 PM, with one round dance between each square dance tip. Usually, the fourth tip is plus. Please see the calendar below for a schedule of our dances.

We dance in the church’s Family Life Center, which is accessible from the northeast side of the parking lot. Refreshments are always provided along with coffee and lots of cool water.
