Stanford Quads

Square Dance Club

Stanford Quads is an APD Plus club. We dance almost every Sunday evening. During class season we dance class level from 7:00 to 9:00pm, with full Plus, Advanced, and Challenge tips starting at 9:00pm. (From about April through September, we dance full Plus from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, followed by Advanced and Challenge tips.)

Our normal dance location is Fairmeadow School, 500 East Meadow Drive, Palo Alto. (When that is unavailable, we dance at some other location in or near Palo Alto.)

Singles, couples, and families are welcome. Conventional square dance attire is not expected. The cost is $8/person. (A discounted rate applies if you pay by the quarter.)

Our callers are Harlan Kerr and Bill van Melle.

We offer a class for beginning square dancers once per year, usually starting in October.

We hold our annual hoedown in the fall.

Video Introduction


Our new class is now underway. We held intro nights for new dancers the first three weeks of October. But people who have had previous experience through at least Basic are still welcome to join.
