Dare to be Square West
Friday-Sunday, November 15, 2014, San Mateo
Dare To Be Square West is a weekend of square dance and music workshops, dancing, jamming, and fun with a mission to promote and preserve traditional square dancing. This event is for everyone, but targeted to interested callers and musicians from up and down the West Coast. Callers, old-time musicians, dancers, and listeners interested in learning the tradition of square dance calling and playing should come out for this fantastic and fun event.
The festival is structured with a Beginner Track for those brand-new to calling and a Master Track for callers who are looking to learn/try new dances and techniques and deepen their calling repertoire. There are also workshops offered for musicians who want to learn how to play old time music for dances on banjo, fiddle, and guitar.
