Circulator Logo


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. Jimmy Akin has recently become our club caller and we're looking forward to dancing with him for a long time. 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.

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.

Square Dancing Class

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

Square dancing is a lot of fun and good exercise. You meet people from all walks of life and all ages. Give it a try if you have never square danced, or if you vaguely remember it from your elementary school days. We think you'll like it!

Contact Kathleen Hoot 858-414-1956 if you have questions.

Out-of-Town Caller Dances

The Circulators will soon begin to host special dances with nationally-known callers again. Here is what we currently have planned. See our calendar for more information. We hope you will come and join us.
