ECR at San Mateo Pride

We had a great time dancing at San Mateo Pride again this year. As you can see in this article, we were the hit of the festival! After an introduction by the mostly fabulous Pollo Del Mar, we revved up the laid-back crowd with our high-energy dancing, got some good press for the club, and maybe got a few people interested in our fall beginner class.

PLUS Class Graduation

On Wednesday June 11, El Camino Reelers welcomed our two new Plus Class grads into the club with cake, speeches, diplomas, the traditional blindfolded dance, and more cake.

We gave a great big thank-you to class instructor Rich Reel for another year of inspired teaching and calling.

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 and let us know you're interested.

El Camino Reelers is a member of

International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs (IAGSDC), an LGBTQ* Organization.
* = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning,
