We are a small club anxious to expand so that the fun and friendship that is key to the spirit of American Square Dancing, benefits as many people as possible in this area.

Our 60th Anniversary Event
We had a really great day celebrating our club’s 60th anniversary. We were delighted to welcome so many dancers from other clubs and thank them for their support. More details and photographs can be seen here on our Reports page.
The planned joint dance weekend with Centre Squares 30th Sept - 1st October 2017 has regrettably been cancelled due to the sudden and unexpected sad demise of Anders Blom. He was an outstanding caller and part of the square dance scene for many decades and will be sorely missed.
