Location

Canaveral Squares is located at the Hope United Church of Christ & Canaveral Squares on 2555 S. Fiske Blvd, Rockledge, FL, 32955. We started dancing at this location late summer of 2015 and we had our first open house on October 13, 2015.


Our History

Canaveral Squares first dance was held on April 1, 1960 on Merritt Island but soon moved to the Tiger Den, beside the water tower in Cocoa. There was no heat or air-conditioning, so dancing was often uncomfortable.

For over fifty years the Canaveral Squares danced at McLarty Rec Center in Rockledge. The club had one night every week for their club dance and one night each week for classes. We have had three dedicated callers since Chuck Durant, who have put their time and effort into the club and kept the dancers dancing and having fun.

Because of the decline in dancers and the increase of rent, we had to move out of McLarty and danced at a couple different places until moving to Hope United Church of Christ in the summer 2015.

It is a beautiful venue – plenty of room, full kitchen, smooth floor to dance on, great sound. We are lucky to have such a wonderful place to dance and hope to fill it with many new dancers.
