Round Dancing is choreographed ballroom dancing and like square dancing, the sequence is called or cued. Hence, dancers learn figures and all couples execute the same steps in a circle (thus the name “round dancing”). Round dancing is easier than ballroom dancing because dancers do not need to memorize long sequences of dance steps. Music genres vary from current hits to ragtime, jazz, country, easy listening, the 50s decade, big band, etc. Spectators may attend for free and are welcome at either lessons or dances.Open to the community.
