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 have resumed some of these activities.

***** Update 06-12-2024 *****

Due to the new Federal Holiday Juneteenth, Balboa Park facilities will be closed on Wednesday June 19, 2024 so there will be no dance that evening. Please return to dance with us on June 26th.

The Club Picnic originally scheduled for Sunday, June 2 has been changed to Sunday, June 23, 2024 due to the Rock and Roll Marathon that will affect the area all around Balboa Park making leaving and entering the picnic site nearly impossible due to the nature of this marathon. Please mark your calendars with the new date and let others know. See the subscriber email for any further details.

We have made changes to our dancing schedules effective Wednesday, October 18, 2023. Learn To Square Dance (SSD - Social Square Dancing) is 6:30 to 8:00 pm, Plus Workshop Dancing is 8:00 to 9:00 pm, which picks up where SSD ends. Having already learned all of the SSD calls is a prerequisite for anyone who wants to be a part of this dance. Experienced full-level Plus Dancing will be 9:00 to 9:30 pm except on Party Nights. No workshoping of calls is expected. As each level completes, there will be other adjustments in the schedule. At this time Finest City will not be offering Advanced-level dancing as part of our program. See the subscriber email or contact us for other details.

Our current sessions of Learn To Square Dance have already begun so check back later for announcements of any new classes.
