Partners are not necessary to join the Gnat Boxers Square Dance Club. However, like most things in life, it's more enjoyable to learn with family and friends. Bring your spouse, friend or family member and join the Gnat Boxers for fun, fellowship, and club activities plus it's a great source of excercise! We welcome all ages from teens on. If your partner can't participate at a lesson, existing club members will be there to ensure you have a partner for each lesson. Dick will be providing instruction on Mainstream Square Dance Calls. Mainstream calls are the basic calls that are included by most square dance callers during dances. Once the new students are ready, Dick will move on to Plus Level square dance calls. These calls are a little more difficult, but a lot of fun to learn.

The cost of lessons is $75.00 per person which covers 25 lessons. Family rates are available and no additional fees or purchases are required. The Gnat Boxers offer a payment schedule. Dick is an excellent instructor and makes learning square dancing very enjoyable. Many members of the Gnat Boxers Square Dance Club also attend the lessons to assist Dick and the students. A formal promotion exercise is held for new dancers upon completion. Once promoted, new dancers will be able to dance at any club, anywhere.

Please feel free to contact Dick Mackey at 330-264-2725 for any additional information concerning lessons.
