El Camino Reelers: LGBTQ Square Dancing in Silicon Valley

Vacation Time

ECR will be taking a two week break while many of our members are traveling to, or recovering from, the IAGSDC Convention in Palm Springs. We will be DARK on the Tuesday and Wednesday before Convention (June 27 and 28) and the Tuesday and Wednesday after Convention (July 4 and 5).

Our Summer dancing program begins on Tuesday July 11 and Wednesday July 12.

Andy Shore Kicks off ECR Fun Nights

We're gearing up for something new this summer.

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

Andy will teach you everything you need to know that evening: squares, contras and more, with some surprises for experienced dancers. Not just square dancing!

7:30-9:30 pm at St. Andrews. $8 at the door or pay what you can.

We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month, featuring a variety of callers to keep each event fresh and interesting.

July 21 • August 18 • September 15 • October 20 • November 17 • December 15.

Stay tuned for more details.

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.
