We host rockin’ square dances at Saint Stephens Church in DC’s Mount Pleasant/Columbia Heights neighborhood, as well as other venues around the DMV. Every dance has a live caller and live music.
Our dances are open to all ages and experience levels. No prior dance experience, lessons or special getups needed. Just come out and dance!

Safe space policy
The DC Square Dance is intended to be a safe, welcoming space for all dancers. Disruptive, aggressive, threatening, harassing, dangerous, or inappropriate behavior has no place here and will not be tolerated. We encourage a culture of proactive consent: If you are unsure whether a particular dancer wants to interact with you in a particular way, ask.
If anybody is behaving in a way that makes the dance less safe for you or for another dancer, please speak with one of the volunteers who help run the dance so that we can address the issue. Volunteers can be found at the front entrance table and throughout the hall. If you wish to make a report after the dance is over, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
