Top Cats

Square Dance Club

Saratoga, California

Top Cats is a square dance club that dances the C-2 and C-3A programs of modern square dancing, as defined by CALLERLAB. As part of this, from time to time we offer classes for dancers who are interested in learning these programs.


We started a C-2 class in November 2015. This class is being held on Monday evenings, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm, at West Hope Presbyterian Church in Saratoga.


  • Based on classes previously taken and current experience dancing C-1 or previous experience dancing C-2, students should be reasonably familiar with basic Challenge dancing skills.
  • Students must commit to studying before each class session the calls to be introduced in that session.
  • Students should plan to attend class regularly and to attend for the full time of each session.
  • Students should be currently dancing C-1 on a regular basis (e.g., at Interlocked), and preferably also be dancing Advanced and/or APD Plus (e.g., at Quads) on a regular basis, and plan to continue such additional dancing throughout the class season.
