Looking for a fun event for your group or organization? My name is Dan Tapper and I am a Square Dance Caller from New Jersey. A Square Dance "Hoedown" or "Barn Dance" is perfect for Church Socials, School sponsored events, Girl Scout Groups (Mother/Daughter, Father/Daughter, My Pal & Me etc.), Corporate Parties, Community Events, Fundraisers and Various Clubs. From the moment the music starts you will be dancing and I will teach you everything you need to know using simple moves. I provide the music and sound system for the event and am BMI and ASCAP licensed. Along with square dancing, you'll get to try Line Dancing and Contra Dancing as well! This is perfect for just about anyone. As we say, if you know your right from your left and can walk, you can square dance! Whether your group has 15 or 150 in it, you will have a great time dancing to lively music that includes traditional square dance music right through songs from artists such as Adele, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, AC-DC and Carly Rae Jepsen!
A dance generally lasts from 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I am willing to call longer, but one and a half hours or so is usually a good length in terms of the energy level and interest span for most first time dancers. We will take several short breaks during the event so the dancers can grab some water, maybe a snack and socialize.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to get information on pricing and availability. I will tailor the event specifically to your group. If you look at the calendar page, many of the groups I have done events for are repeats! Square dancing..."Give it a Whirl"!
