With Stampede just around the corner, it seems that Calgary takes a slightly western turn on things. So, whether or not rodeos and grandstand shows are your thing, there are still a few ways you can enjoy dance besides gracefully dodging crowds of people throughout Stampede Park.

Stampede Dance
July 5, 8 p.m.
Swingin’ Singles Square Dance Club

Remember in high school when they put you in groups of eight and made you hold hands with a boy or girl? There was a lovely gentleman as the caller, who was probably old enough to be your grandfather’s grandfather. Yes, you secretly loved it, too. So, why not go back and square dance again? Bring a partner, swing em’ round, do-si-do, etc. Put up your jeans and plaid print shirts – everyone welcome – to Winston Heights Community Centre (520 27 Ave. NE) to reunite with your inner-cowboy/cowgirl. $5 per person.

A-Train Dance
July 6, 8:30 p.m.
Swing Dance Calgary

Swing Dance Calgary does the “A-Train” event every Friday. But for the first Friday of the month they are calling it “Big Apple Night” – as inspired by national dance craze by the same name. Beginner lesson starts at 8:30 p.m., followed by the “Lindy Hoppers” dancing the historic “Big Apple” routine, followed by a jazz contest. $10 for adults and $7 for students. The dance will be held at the Mount Pleasant Community Centre (602 22 Ave. NW). As long as you’re ready to get your swing era dance on, you are welcome to join – experienced or not.

Alberta Pole Dance Championships
July 13, 5:30 – 10:30 p.m.
Platinum Stage

Now, I’m sure endless debates could be made on whether or not “pole dancing” should be considered a type of dance. However, we are in a new day and age where open-mindedness shall not be looked down upon! It’s not just for the strippers anymore, kiddies. There are four divisions (beginner, semi-pro, professional and doubles!) that will not only showcase as a competition but for the enjoyment of the audience. So, as controversial as it may seem, it takes true strength, agility and elegance to perform (kind of like any dancer, right?). Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and it takes place at Desperados NightClub (7400 Macleod Tr. South).
