Dakota Squares



Dakota Squares hosts monthly square dances in West St. Paul, Minnesota, and offers beginners' lessons each autumn in St. Paul, Minnesota.


We dance Mainstream and Plus at Faith United Methodist Church, in West St. Paul, Minnesota. Sometimes we might even have a round dance or line dance thrown in!


Dakota Squares is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping people learn, practice, and enjoy modern square dancing. We are a proud member of Square Dance Minnesota, Inc.
