This is a report on teen dancers in Petaluma, CA as reported in the Press Democrat By Janet Parmer.
Petaluma’s youth bop to a new beat and learn it’s fun to dance to a different tune! Aleksandra and Danielle Olivera once dreaded being dragged to square dances. Now the St. Vincent High School students are largely responsible for the dramatic increase in teenagers learning to square dance in Petaluma. They’ve lured many of their friends to the Tuesday night Adobe Squares club, and most have returned voluntarily to learn more dance steps. The Adobe Squares beginning square dance class, which meets at the Petaluma Women’s club, is anything but traditional, with teens almost outnumbering adults.
