Thank you for dropping by our website. Our goal is to promote Square Dancing by providing information on dancing in East Texas and providing information on special dances/events that might be of interest to the dancers of East Texas and dancers elsewhere. Jim & Gwyn.

Don’t just sit there; learn to ‘SQUARE DANCE’!!!!

If you found this website as a result of your search for a place to “learn” to Square Dance, this is the spot. First, let’s welcome you to the start of a new and exciting activity. Next, if you live in the area designated as East Texas Square and Round Dance Association, which is about 25 counties in the northeast section of Texas, then there are a couple of avenues you may take.

    1) On the sidebar to the left, click the ‘Clubs in East Texas’ page’ to locate a club near you which will have contact info for the officers of that club.

    2) Also on that page are listed the officers of the East Texas Association, with contact info, and any of them will be glad to assist you in your search to “learn” to Square Dance.

    3) If you do not live in the East Texas area, then you may click here, http://www.squaredancetx.com/districts.html for the other Texas Districts. If you cannot find your location, then contact us as noted in (5) below.

    4) If you live outside Texas, search for Square Dancing in your state.

    5) You may contact the webmaster, Jim & Gwyn Haynes at DancingWithJimAndGwyn@hughes.net and we will try to help you no matter where you live, just give your city/state location. We would enjoy helping you and would look forward to meeting you on the dance floor somewhere.

We publish an "East Texas SD Newsletter". Our goal is to promote Square Dancing by providing information on dancing in East Texas and providing information on special dances/events that might be of interest to the dancers of East Texas and dancers elsewhere.

The Newsletter will have information about East Texas clubs, cancellations, location changes, and other news about local events. It will also have information about special dances and events that might be of interest for those who would travel to enjoy some great dancing in Texas, the surrounding states and even some dances in faraway places.

DISCLAIMER: We strive to publish correct information but things can change faster than we can type, therefore it is not guaranteed. If you notice errors/omissions, please contact us. As always, it is a good idea to contact the club and verify times and locations.

If there is something you would like included on this site, contact us in writing. The standard for info to be included is it must meet our goal as stated above. Additionally, we must have the time and the ability to include the material.

Video Square Dance Lessons Online

This is a SPECIAL LINK to a great website and to videos of Mainstream and Plus Square Dance calls. It has videos that show all the calls, so the call can be reviewed before, during, or after one has taken lessons. It is an excellent tool to supplement the teaching of calls during a set of lessons or to review calls one may have a problem with. Larry Kraber, the caller on the videos, does an excellent job in this series. DVD's can be ordered for both the Mainstream and Plus set of calls.

Go to this link to view the calls or to get info on ordering the DVDs; http://videosquaredancelessons.com/lessons/
