A Taste of Square Dance History: Silver Dollar Squares

The Silver Dollar Squares is a club that was formed in the 1950s. This account of their history shows how some of the clubs operated back then, and serves as an interesting contrast to how clubs are run today.

Club rules were different in the early years: If you missed 3 dances in a row you had to go back and take lessons, square dance attire was required or you weren’t admitted, any visitor had to be personally sponsored by a member to be at the dance, and to attend class or become a member required personal sponsorship of a member.
