MEMBERSHIP

Registration information and membership fees are due the night of the 2nd lesson.  Please make your check payable to "H-Town Squares."  If it is a hardship to pay the full amount, please ask regarding breaking the payment up.  

NEW MEMBERS - ages 13 & up (Grand Squares Teen Club)

Where does the money go?  Good question! 

The majority of these funds go toward facilities and paying the caller for lessons.  The remainder covers graduation dance arrangements.   In addition, H-Town Squares pays annual state dues and fees.

Market Street Young Adult Dance Nights​
Our young adult nights are open dance nights. They may also choose to join mainstream lessons on the nights offered with the teens.  Our hope is to eventually offer mainstream lessons for just young adults but at this time this is not offered due to costs. Dance nights include line dancing, some basic mainstream square dancing calling, and some round dancing.
CLUB VISION

We seek to glorify Christ first and foremost, providing a fun, safe activity that facilitates friendship and fellowship for our teens and young adults. 

DRESS CODE

 

  • No provocative clothing.

  • Shorts must be at least mid-thigh length.  No biker or yoga style shorts or pants are allowed.

  • All shirts and tops must always cover the midriff (check with arms raised, as this will occur while dancing). The following are examples of shirts that are unacceptable:  shirts w/ straps thinner than 3 inches, strapless, spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder, cut-out designs, tank tops, racerback shirts, low-cut shirts, bare-back, sheer or mesh clothing that does not have an appropriate blouse or shirt underneath, etc. 

  • Boys must wear shirts with sleeves.

  • No shirts with offensive language, imagery, or bad words are allowed (of course!).

  • Skirts must come near the top of the knee; shorts should always be worn underneath skirts.

  • Square dance skirts and dresses are acceptable, though no petti pants are allowed.

  • No cleavage on anyone, anywhere.  

  • No undergarments may be visible.

Square dancing involves spinning and twirling.  Be sure that you come prepared to show off your dancing - not anything else!  Show love and kindness to your Christian brothers and sisters by protecting them from temptation.  Thank you!

 

Dress Code Infraction Policy:

 

The first 2 times - Two parents will speak with the teen and the parent if available.  The teen may choose to change clothes to remedy the situation (H-Town Squares T-shirts and square dance skirt available, or they may change at home and return), rather than leave the dance.  If a parent is not available, they will be contacted in a follow-up phone call before the next dance.

The third and following times - Two parents will speak with the teen and parent if available.  The teen will be asked to go home.  If a parent is not available, they will be contacted in a follow-up phone call before the next dance.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

We affirm these tenets of Christian theology:

 

  1. The Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.  It is the supreme and final authority for all faith and life.  (Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

  2. God is one Being who eternally exists as three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; all of the Persons are equal in power and glory.  (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

  3. Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man (John 1:1, 14), born of a virgin (Matthew 1: 18), and was sinless in His life (Hebrews 4:15).  He died on the cross as a substitute for sinful men (Hebrews 9:15), rose bodily from the grave (John 20:1-9, 24-3 1; Acts 2:24), and now reigns with the Father (Acts 2:33; Hebrews10:12).  He will return visibly and personally to the earth both in salvation and judgment (Acts 1:11; Hebrews 9:28; Matthew 24:30).

  4. All humans are sinful by nature (Romans 3:23-5:12) and can only be forgiven by grace through the expression of faith/trust in Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16, Romans 10:9). 

  5. God creates each person as male or female in His image. The term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. Any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual behavior, transgenderism, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 2:18-25; 1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4; Matt. 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10).

  6. The Holy Spirit indwells the Christian, enabling the believer to live a godly life (Romans 8:1-17).

PARENT SECTION

 

Our vision is to provide a fun, Christian, "high-energy" activity for homeschoolers, their friends, and families. As a H-Town Squares parent, you can help to make our club dances and lessons a great place to be throughout the year by doing the following:

 

1.  Sign up to volunteer on our Sign-Up Genius for the different areas you can help at dances and lessons.

 

IMPORTANT: We require a minimum number of parent volunteers present in order for us to hold an event.  If for any reason we do not have the positions filled, then we will have to cancel that meeting. Our Parent Volunteer Coordinator is ready to help make sure you are signed up and know what to do. Please contact the Coordinator with any questions or concerns about volunteering.  Thank you for helping this year!                                                                                                                                                        

 

2.  Encourage your teen square dancer!  As members of the club, teens are expected to fully participate and dance every tip. Encourage them to meet new members and dance with different dance partners throughout the evening, not only their friends. Ask your teen how learning the dance calls is going. If they need help, they can come early to a dance or lesson and ask our student officers and other “angels” (members who have graduated from mainstream lessons) to practice before the activity begins.

 

3. Consider taking lessons.  Parent couples can take lessons, too!
