K-Laires (1971-1993) | Morse Department of Special Collections

Name: K-Laires (1971-1993)

Historical Note: The K-Laires square dance club was a student organization at Kansas State University from 1971 to 1993. Membership was open to all K-State students. The organization’s purpose was to teach members the methods and techniques of square dancing, have fun, and make friends. The group met for lessons on Sunday nights at the Union. It generally took 22 lessons to learn all of the steps. Beginners could join at the beginning of the fall semester. The K-Laires sponsored specialty dances throughout the academic year and traveled around the state to participate in other clubs’ square dances. Non-members who attended dances were called “outlaws.” According to the Royal Purple yearbook, the Hoe-downers were the K-Laires’ predecessor.
