Boots and Slippers Square Dance Club in Simi Valley, California

The Boots and Slippers were chartered in August of 1959. Our goals are to promote American Square Dance in the community by providing sponsored dances to our members and the community and new dancer instruction to the public.  We have danced in the Simi Valley Senior Center

since its opening in the early 1980’s enjoying their hardwood floor and large air-conditioned room.

We offer Square Dance classes starting September (the first Monday after Labor Day) through June on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

 We have Club dances on the second Saturday of each month.  We also provide class level” Fun” dances on the first Saturday of the month. This dance allows our class members and other students additional practice time. Our classes teach 68 Mainstream calls and 29 Plus list calls.

We have three special dances: Our Doggie Dance benefitting the Guide Dogs of America in June, our Anniversary dance in August and our New Years Eve dance on December 31st.

These dances are well attended by many clubs in our region.  The Doggie Dance is dear to visitors from other clubs that have attended for more than 30 years. All profit from the dance is donated to the Guide Dogs of America in Sylmar, CA to train dogs for the blind and service dogs for other special needs individuals.

We also offer a summer workshop to increase the skill level of dancers in DBD (dancing by definition) on Monday evenings 7:00 to 9:00 PM each July and August.
