Opportunities for Members



Would you like to meet & dance with people from the Quad Cities area including Geneseo, Clinton, Morrison and Iowa city? Would you like to meet & dance with people from other states at the State Conventions and from other countries at the National Conventions? Would you like to be able to dance at clubs in every State?

If being able to do any of the above is something that interests you, then you should learn to square dance!!!!!

What is square dancing?
Square dancing is entertainment & exercise set to music. The caller is there to entertain you – to make dancers forget about their day to day worries. It works! During a regular dance night you will walk from 5,000 to 10,000 steps depending on many sets you dance. You will find yourself dancing to many different types of music, including country, rock, popular jazz, gospel and polka. Most dances only cost between $5 to $10 per person.

Lessons are $5 per person with there being 11 lessons and the first lesson free. Plus 60 club members receive a 10% discount on dance lessons and a $1 discount on all WHEEL-N-STEPPERS dances. 

After lessons there are two local clubs where you can square dance in Bettendorf and Davenport. One club is a solo club which welcomes couples also. In addition, there clubs in Clinton, Iowa City, Morrison IL and Geneseo IL that you can dance at. The cost of local dances is between $5 to $7 a person minus $1.00 for Plus 60 members.
