El Camino Reelers: LGBTQ Square Dancing in Silicon Valley

Andy Shore Kicks off ECR Fun Nights

On Friday July 21, ECR kicked off a series of "Fun Nights" -- no-experience-needed square dance parties -- with the return of long-ago ECR caller Andy Shore.

Andy called a variety of dances - squares, mixers, contras - and kept the crowd buzzing with novelties like this dance for groups of 5 people:

We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month (August 18, September 15, October 20, November 17, December 15) featuring a variety of callers to keep each event fresh and interesting.

For more details on Fun Nights and our new beginner program, see our Beginner Classes page.

June 2017: Pride Month

El Camino Reelers danced in two Pride celebrations this year: San Mateo and Santa Cruz. Rich called for both events and encouraged onlookers to join us as we strutted our stuff for the crowd.

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
