We hope you will join us!


The Circulators invite you to dance with us on 2nd, 4th and 5th Fridays at the Recital Hall in San Diego's beautiful Balboa Park from 7:00 - 9:30 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.

! ! !  We are back to dancing every Friday evening.  ! ! !

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.

Social Square Dancing Class

Our class for new dancers began in September. Classes are Friday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 pm in the Recital Hall. The classes are $6.00 donation per session. Children 10 - 16 are free with paid adult. If you belong to another SSD class and would like more floor time or if you danced in the past and would like to renew your skills, come join us!

See our flyer for more details.

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 begin scheduling national callers again.


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.
