The Castle Paws and Taws is an American Western Square Dance club. It is located in the Beautiful hills of West Central Pennsylvania near the Ohio border in historic New Castle. We are just an hour North West of Pittsburgh.

Cascade Park Pavilion Dance Hall was built over 133 years ago for dancing. It has high ceilings with wood lattice work. It has a linoleum covered wood floor.

We dance a mixture of student level, Plus and Mainstream every dance depending on the level of dancers attending that dance. We will have Cuers for almost all dances. You may wear traditional Square Dance attire or nice casual apparel.
