Outer Sunset square-dancing club honored at City Hall
The Caper Cutters, a square-dancing club in the Outer Sunset, received a commendation from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors at City Hall Tuesday, via Supervisor Carmen Chu:
In honor of 60 years of “twirling your partners,” “do si doing” and “promenading home,” the San Francisco Board of Supervisors acknowledges the Caper Cutters’ commitment to preserving this fun and physical tradition for the Sunset District and square dancers throughout the City, and offers you its highest commendation.
The Caper Cutters club meets Monday evenings for square dancing and round dancing — a sort of ballroom dancing led by a caller, as in square dancing — at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church at 43rd Avenue and Judah Street.
Dancing with the Caper Cutters isn’t just for club members, however. The group also offers classes and welcomes guest dancers:
Guests are always welcome. Our guest fee for dancers is $6.00 per person per night. Viewing is free.
Membership in Caper Cutters Club is open to all qualified dancers. Membership includes free admission to our weekly dances. Dues are $50.00 a quarter per person. For more information, click here.
