When and Where We Dance

Cast A Shadow Square Dance Club is an Advanced (A2) and Challenge (C1) club in the Emerald Empire (southern Willamette Valley). The club dances on scheduled Sunday afternoons at the Emerald Square Dance Center (ESDC), 2095 Yolanda Street, Springfield, Oregon 97477. Dances are scheduled in advance, depending on caller and dancer availability (via an email survey of dancers). Dances are in Hall B in the back of the building. The club has been in operation since the 1990s and is a member of the Oregon Federation of Square and Round Dance Clubs and the Emerald Empire Area Council. Sunday dances are primarily A2 level; for information on C1 level dances, click on Contacts & Resources. Dance sessions marked with * below are tentative until confirmed via an email survey.

Cast A Shadow resumed Advanced dances in the spring of 2022.  For the foreseeable future, the club will temporarily limit participation to fully vaccinated dancers.  The club will ask dancers to sign a waiver and release of liability.  A copy of the waiver can be downloaded here:  CAS Policies and Waiver.
