Our dances – usually on Saturday nights – offer a chance to dance to guest callers and practice what has been learned in class. Dances are always open to non-members and visitors that have completed the appropriate Callerlab-based course for the level that they plan to dance. And, as always, the dress code is casual!
We also encourage non-dancers to come watch the fun and to learn more about the club and square dancing to see if they want to join the next series of classes.

Throughout the year, gay square dance clubs all over the US and Canada sponsor multi-day events (usually 3-days) called fly-ins. These fly-ins offer more dancing than a single dance and typically offer workshops and creative sessions to help expand on square dancing principles.
Our fly-in, Promenade Down Peachtree (PDP), is usually held over the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday weekend.
PDP 2018 Carnival
will be held January 12th - 14th, 2018.

Want a great way to claim a tax deduction and help support Hotlanta Squares and PALS (Pets Are Loving Support) at the same time? Play bingo!
Each year in the fall Hotlanta Squares plays bingo with PALS as a fundraiser. If you can't come to the event, it's not a problem. We'll play your cards for you!
If you win, we'll keep half and send you half. Some people donate their winnings back to PALS; so, if that is what you would like us to do with your half, just let us know.
Hotlanta Squares will appreciate your support either way.
