What the heck are Cheesecake Squares? "This is a Square Dancing competition - The dances are not taught, it's a half hour of no walk through squares. Specially trained (and totally bribe-able!) judges watch carefully and when a square breaks down (or looks confused and panicked with everyone scrambling hither and yon) they are roped off the floor and eliminated until finally only the winning square remains on the floor. Then the winners (and all present) get to chow down on delicious cheesecake. It's more about confidence and recovery (with a VERY healthy dose of silliness) than actual square dancing skills and knowledge, all in all, it's a hilarious time."
