$6.00 donation
We hope you will join us!


The Circulators invite you to dance with us Friday evenings at the Recital Hall in San Diego's beautiful Balboa Park from 6:30 - 9:00 PM. We dance at the plus level. Steve Woodard is our caller. Couples, singles, and children (with adult supervision) are welcome. The entrance donation is $6.00 per person, unless it is a special dance with an out-town-caller. Children 13 and under are free.

For the hearing impaired and those wearing hearing aids, Circulators is proud to have a sound enhancement system. With your own pocket FM radio receiver and earphones or ear buds, you can tune into the Circulators' frequency and receive the caller's voice directly. Distracting noises, reverberation, or distance from the sound source will not interfere with your ability to hear the caller or cuer.

What to wear? We prefer you wear square dance attire at our dances, but you are more than welcome to dance if you come in street clothes.

Circulators will be celebrating its 45 years of existence on May 7 at the Recital Hall. Pre- rounds with Bill Davenport begin at 6:30 and squares and rounds will commence at 7:15. Steve Woodard will be calling. Our train theme continues, so wear your train outfits. $6.00 donation.

If you have an extra dollar or two, purchase some raffle tickets and get a chance to win the beautiful quilt that the quilt ladies have put together.

We have started a refresher workshop. It takes place Friday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 pm in the Recital Hall. The workshop has a $6.00 donation per session and you are welcome to stay and dance with the club if you are comfortable with the dance level.

Out-of-Town Caller Dances

The Circulators host special dances with nationally-known callers throughout the year. Once dancing really gets going again, we'll schedule the national callers.


Steve Woodard

Steve Woodard has been calling for the club since 1981. He began square dance calling while serving in the Army in Germany. We consider him one of the best callers in the southern California area. He enjoys calling a challenging dance and we like him keeping us on our toes. He calls at many dances and festivals throughout California, Nevada, and Arizona. Please contact Steve if you'd like to contract him for a dance. He can be reached via e-mail or 619-742-4570.
