About Us

Welcome. Spares & Pairs was formed in August 1964. We are a mainstream square dance organization with round dancing cued between each tip and a plus tip at the end of the evening. We dance on Wednesday evenings with the exception of some holidays. Please see our schedule for exact times and information or click on contact us. We dance year round in an air-conditioned hall at 1114 American Boulevard, Bloomington, MN 55420. Singles, couples, teens and families are welcome. Come and join us on Wednesday evening! Spares and Pairs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax and a member of Square Dance Minnesota, Inc. Our mission is to promote and teach square dancing in all its heritage forms by promoting square dancing and training new people in the activities of square dancing.
