Thank you for visiting the Oaktown 8's website to learn about modern square dancing.
Our club serves the community of Oakland, Berkeley, San Leandro, Hayward, Fremont, Richmond, Orinda, and the SF East Bay Area. We were founded as a gay square dance club under the umbrella of the International Association of Gay Square Dancers, but we welcome all - gay, straight, couples and singles. You can dance "boy" or "girl" or both.
Please check out our website or go right to the CLASSES and CALENDAR/SCHEDULE sections to see details of our upcoming events.
Oaktown 8s is more than just a dance club, we have social events as well and are open to hosting more. For an example of square dancing, see the two links below.
