San Diego's Finest City Squares is a square dance club serving the lesbian and gay community in the San Diego area and we welcome all dancers to join us.

Casual dress is permitted at all of our functions and partners are not required to dance with us.

Our club has an annual picnic and organizes other social events throughout the year such as hiking, movie theaters and live theater. We are starting to resume some of these events.

***** Update 05-13-2022 *****

We started our new 12 week Learn To Square Dance group on March 2. The group is open to those new dancers who have been attending and to returning dancers who have square danced in recent years and would like to get back up to speed with their dancing. If you haven't danced since before the pandemic shutdown, or if you've danced only a time or two since we reopened, this group would work for you. The Learn To Square Dance part of our program begins at 6:30 ending at 8:00pm and is 12 weeks of HIGH ENERGY DANCING for singles and couples. No partner needed. Casual attire. Wear comfortable shoes. Donation: $5 per week after the March 2nd Open House and Introduction. (See our NEW COVID POLICY below, which will apply to everyone)

Finest City's POTLUCKS will resume on Wednesday, June 1. To alleviate concerns about food safety, we will have lots of hand sanitizer on hand and will ask everyone to use it before going through line. If you cannot use it, or still have concerns about touching serving implements, we will have disposable gloves available for you to use while going through line.

Please do not bring loose items, such as popcorn, chips, crackers, etc. that anyone might touch with their bare hands, unless those items are separately packaged in single serving packages. Bring serving implements (tongs, serving spoons, spatulas and so on) with whatever you bring to share. We have a supply of serving implements, but sometimes more are needed than we have on hand.

Finest City's ANNUAL CLUB PICNIC will be held near the tennis courts at Morley Field in Balboa Park on Sunday, June 12. The club will provide chicken from El Pollo Loco, and everyone else is asked to bring a dish to share. We will be set up by 11:00am, and usually eat around NOON, or when the chicken arrives. Bring a folding chair or blanket to sit on. The lawn area has a few scattered picnic tables (we use one to hold the food), but no seating.

See the full new schedule below

The City and Balboa Park have changed their policy about facemasks and they are now optional for anyone who is vaccinated so that applies to anyone at our club dances.
