Our Event Calendar:
Betsy Taylor and her husband, Al, have been square dancers since 1965. Betsy became a square dance caller and has been calling in the Washington area since 1993. She has also prompted Contra dances since 1997. In 2000 she called and prompted at the National Square Dance Convention in Baltimore and began teaching square dance and Contra classes for the Montgomery County Recreation Department. She became a member of NCASDLA (National Capital Area Square Dance Leaders Association) in 1997 and served as President from 2009 to 2012. She is also a member of CallerLab (International Callers Association).Top
The Taylor Made Squares is a caller run square dance club which joined WASCA in 1998. We are mostly a Teaching Club. Originally we only taught Mainstream but now we also teach Plus and Contra.
Currently, we dance and teach Tuesday Mornings from 10:00AM to 11:00AM at the Rosborough Cultural Arts and Wellness Center, a part of the Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg, MD. It is very close to Lake Forest Mall.
We dance and learn square dancing from the Beginner to the Mainstream levels. The cost is $5 per dancer per session.
To find the Rosborough Cultural Arts and Wellness Center, enter Asbury Methodist Village at the main gatehouse at the intersection of Lost Knife Road and Odendhal Avenue. Ask the gatekeeper how to find Square Dancing at the Rosborough Center.

In the fall of 1995, Betsy Taylor began teaching square dancing at the Longbranch Community Center in Silver Spring, MD. In December 1997, we applied to be a Mainstream Club in WASCA, the Washington Area Square Dancers Cooperative Association. Since then, we have been a caller run club with an emphasis on teaching, and have used Longbranch Community Center in Silver Spring, MD on Tuesday nights (1997 through 2005) and the Wheaton Community Center in Wheaton, MD on Wednesday nights (2006 through 2009) as our principal home base. In September 2009 we began using the Church of the Ascension in Silver Spring, MD on Monday nights as home base.
We have given many demonstrations at such places as: nursing homes, assisted living facilities, libraries, the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center, the Longbranch and Coffield Community Centers, the 75th anniversary celebration of the Montgomery Farm Women's Coop Market in Bethesda in 2007, City Place Mall and Derwood Agricultural Farm.
We are particularly proud to have danced and marched annually in Montgomery County's Holiday Parade since it was revived in Silver Spring in 1998. The only year we missed, 2007, was due to Al's treatment for bladder cancer.Top
