The Clover Squares Square Dancing Club holds its dancing each Wednesday in the spacious Williston Crossings RV Park Clubhouse, just off Highway 27 in Williston.


Each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., the club offers square dancing lessons, the fee for adults is $5 and children are free. Kids of all ages are invited to dance in the squares for free.

The hour-long lessons offer a fun-filled evening the entire family can enjoy. Seasoned dancers or “Angels” are paired with novices and a square is formed with four couples.

It’s traditionally the same dance style, but the noticeable difference is the music that is no longer the twangy sounds of “Turkey in Straw.” Today’s square dancing is set to popular songs of this era.

At 7:30 p.m., veteran square dancers take the floor and for two hours of dancing. The club provides refreshments for all to enjoy.

Clover Squares was re-established in February 2014, the original club started dancing in 1979, then disbanded in 1986. With 26 members, some just leaving to head back north for the summer, they are always welcoming new members.

President Vicki Todd said the club used to be a big part of 4-H, but the club has decided to open it up to all youths and families that are interested.
