Wake Forest Squares started out September 2019 with just a few people coming together to square dance, socialize and build new friendships. Our dedicated dancers enjoy meeting often for different events and activities. Passion and enthusiasm go hand-in-hand with everything we do.
Our door is always open to new dancers, no matter their experience level. We are proud to bring together people from all over Wake Forest, NC and beyond.
Come join us at our next event — we are a friendly bunch. We’d love to share all that Wake Forest Squares has to offer.
About Today's Square Dance
Today’s Square Dance is choreographed walking to music lead by a caller. No fancy footwork or leading required!
It is a little like football, except without the concussions. You’ve got formations. You’ve got a team around you. You’ve got plays sent in by the caller, the dance coach and leader. The challenge is: can you and your team run the route successfully?
Now granted, the team is coed, but that’s a positive feature. The team is made up of couples and singles—no partner required! You’re working together with seven other people and when you and your team nail the outcome, it’s really quite exhilarating!
All that is necessary is the ability to sustain a fast walking pace and a positive attitude. A quick mind and the love of a good puzzle are helpful too!
About our Caller and Dance Coach
Eva Murray started calling and teaching both contras and squares in 1997. Eva’s repertoire includes modern squares, zesty contras, traditional squares, circles, long way sets and triplets. Eva's love for the dance is apparent in the enthusiasm she brings to the dance!
