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. (The rest of the year we dance 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.
