Chi-Town Snow Cancellations

Come Square Dance With Us!

Perhaps you have unpleasant memories of nerdy junior high exposure to square dancing or grandparents who wore funny outfits. Trust us, this is NOT square dancing as we practice it! Come see how we do it, with lots of twirling, swirling and fun. Note: you do not have to bring a partner - most of our members are single and you are guaranteed someone with whom to dance.

Chi-Town Squares was inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame for its 25 years of breaking barriers between LGBT and non-LGBT square dancers, while teaching and providing a venue for LGBT square dancing in Chicago and the central U.S.

We hosted the International Gay Square Dance Convention in 1995 & 2010, and one of its offshoots is the well-known She Devils, a bearded troupe of drag performers who dress in square-dance attire.

The 2012 Induction Ceremony was held on Monday, November 12, 2012 at the Chicago History Museum.
