About Us

Leduc Square Dance is the online presence of the Happy Homesteaders Square Dance Club, founded 1 October 1980 in New Sarepta.  We run a number of programs to serve our members and to give back to the community, including

  • Square dance classes (to the Basic and Mainstream levels)
  • Introductory Round Dance
  • Mainstream Dances
  • A New Dancer Jamboree for the Leduc area
  • Homesteader Night, a dinner and dance for the local square dance community (our major fundraising event)
  • S.T.A.R.S. Benefit dance, open to the community, where we typically raise around $1500 for the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society.  Come and enjoy our dancing and give a donation to help keep STARS in the sky.
  • Christmas Tour to entertain at seniors residences

The club is actively seeking members — couples, singles, families (yes, bring the kids but expect them to take part), youth, seniors.  Anyone who enjoys moving to music, is friendly, wants to have fun, is willing to listen, learn, and laugh is fully qualified!

Our Lessons

We meet Mondays, 7:00, from late September to late April each year.  Come and give us a try starting on September 24, 2018 or January 7, 2019.   You may register up to three weeks late but the full fee will still be due.  Fee is $80 for 12 sessions in each term, plus a mandatory one-time $20 club membership to cover insurance and registration.  [Information was correct at the time of posting but subject to change for Term Two]

Our Caller

This is not Dave, it is a generic caller image.

Our caller couple is Dave & Doreen Kurney, from Millet.   Dave calls the moves, while Doreen helps with equipment, sound checks, and much more.

Dave also calls at  Sandholm Crossroads, south of Thorsby, a club he helped start.

A popular local caller, Dave has been involved in square dance for perhaps 30 years, and has been calling for about 20 years. [Section under development and subject to change.]
