Location: Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Started: 2008

History: Temple Squares, Utah’s only LGBTQ* square dance club, was first organized in 1993. The only problem at that time…no caller could be found.

In 2008, after our first club caller (Ross Lopton) moved to town, we were off and running! Justin Crawshaw and Ross Lopton were joined at Utah Pride that year by Allan Hurst (who alternated calling demo/intro tips with Ross) and Randy Hensley (acting as a "booth babe") to help recruit potential dancers...and the rest is history!

Classes: Tuesday 7pm - 9pm

Club Caller[s]: Ross Crawshaw-Lopton
