Dare To Be Square DMV

Event Details

The DC Square Dance Collective and the Baltimore Square Dance are excited to announce the return of Dare To Be Square DMV at Prince William Forest Park, Cabin Camp 4, May 10-12!  

This is a fun and affordable weekend getaway for all ages and skill levels, from experienced dancers to those who haven’t tried square dancing since middle school gym class. If you have ever enjoyed a fine evening of square dancing and fantastic old-time music at St. Stephen’s in DC or Mobtown Ballroom in Baltimore, this is for YOU!

This weekend takes place at a rustic cabin camp in Prince William Forest Park near Dumfries, VA, just an hour south of DC. Square dance to your heart’s content to live music at nightly dances and day-time workshops, learn to call your first dance or hone your calling skills, enjoy old-time instrument and singing sessions, learn clogging/flatfooting, or take advantage of oodles of opportunities to jam, hang out, and make new friends.

We’re thrilled to be welcoming back Phil Jamison and Becky Hill as dance callers and instructors. We’ll also have performances and workshops from an all star lineup of musicians, including Maddy Mullany, Clarke Williams, Bridger Dunnagan, Landon George, Rachel Eddy, Brad Kolodner, Alex Lacquement, Cathy Fink, and Marcy Marxer. 

Unlike our usual dances, advance registration is required. Early bird registration is only $90 for the first 50 registrations, with discounts available for kids and for musicians who play for workshops. The registration fee covers evening dances, daytime workshops, onsite lodging, and even meals. Find out more and register today at www.daretobesquaredmv.com/!

We can’t wait to bring people together for another weekend of dancing, music, and revelry.
