Utah’s queer square dance club, Temple Squares, will hold two dances, March 23 and April 27, 7-9 p.m. in the Columbus Center at 2531 S. 500 East. Everyone is welcome, regardless of ability and these events are a terrific opportunity to become more familiarized with square dancing.
The club will also host a “fly in” with two international callers May 3-5. This year, Anne Uebelacker from Canada and Hunter Keller from Billings, Montana will be featured. The event is a lead-in and practice for the International Association of Gay Square Dance Convention. This year it is hosted July 4-7 in San Francisco where more than 1,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender square dancers will gather.
In 2014 Salt Lake City will play host to the worldwide convention. Square dancers from around the world will flock to the Grand America Hotel for “Squeeze the Hive.”
