Volume 1 & 2 Now Available For Macintosh and Windows -- Order your copy TODAY




Welcome to the Animated Square Dance Patterns Series. This Square Dancing series was designed to assist you in recalling forgotten steps, in basic, Mainstream, Plus or Advanced. This is NOT a replacement for Square Dance Lessons, but intended to supplement them. All moves will work with either PC with Windows 95 (or higher), MacIntosh with OS 9.1, an Internet browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or Netscape 5 or higher are the recommended browsers. The animations can be controlled by using the buttons at the bottom of each movie to play it in a continuous sequence, or using the "STEP" buttons, to advance/go back frame by frame. To run the movie, you must hit the play button. The "NORMAL" and "SLOW" buttons, just select the speed of the movement.

If you like this program and would like to promote it at your local club and dances, I have included a flyer page that you can distribute to your fellow dancers. This file flyer95.doc is a Word 95 document that can be opened in Word and then printed.

If you are having problems, viewing the movie, it is recommended that you re-read the instructions in the Read Me first instruction page.

All movements thru Advanced are available NOW on CD ROM. Volume 1--contains Basic, Mainstream, and Plus. Volume covers Advanced. Each set costs $31.99 and $5.00 for shipping. To purchase your copy, contact R. Gartner at (703) 430-8654 or send an e-mail.   The e-mail address is

This is a site created by a square dancer for square dancers. The site and CD were designed to promote Square Dancing. While taking lessons, many students had trouble using the Square Dance Booklets promoted by Callerlab. To make learning easier, I created the Square Dancing Animations for Basic, Mainstream, and Plus. Since it can be totally controlled, a student can learn Square dancing at their own pace. The easier it is to learn and to remember the Square Dancing patterns, the more people will be inclined to join our Square Dance community. Besides giving examples of Square Dancing Patterns, I have added links to Square Dancing Clipart, and Square Dancing sites that promote dancing in various areas of the country.
