Membership in the Times Squares is open to anyone who has learned the Mainstream (Condensed Teaching Order) program as defined by Callerlab, and who supports the purpose of the club. We do not discriminate with respect to membership on any basis, and welcome all to participate in dancing with us. There are specifically no restrictions on sexual orientation. Everyone is welcome to join.
Membership allows you to vote at the annual meeting usually held in early January and to be listed in our membership directory.
If you have not yet learned the Mainstream program, we encourage you to visit our New Dancers page. New graduates of the Mainstream Blast Weekend receive a free year of membership.
If you have mastered the Mainstream program and would like to join or renew your membership in Times Squares please complete and mail in the Membership Application/Renewal form.
Each membership year begins January 1 and annual dues are $60. Your dues cover the following expenses: mailings, recruitment, publicity, liability insurance, memberships, and the purchase and maintenance of equipment. We also provide a partial subsidy for classes and workshops with low enrollment, as well as offer scholarships to those in financial need.
A Membership Directory is maintained for the use of members only. People are listed on the roster only if they choose to be, and can opt out of showing specific information (e.g., home address) by indicating this on the registration form.
Once you are a registered member, you will have exclusive access to the following archival sections:
The club also encourages members to post profiles on the International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs (IAGSDC) roster website here. This allows our members to post photos of themselves if they wish. You will need to register with IAGDSC to see the roster.
Please contact us if you have any questions about membership.
