Upcoming Events:

Cardinal Squares, Salisbury, NC
It is great when the dancers sing along with me like they did on "West
Virginia".  Another treat was when Linda came up and sang harmony on "One Day At A Time".  You missed a special time if you did not make it to Salisbury on August 23rd.  A special reminder, David Cox has agreed to fill in on August 30, as I had a previous commitment.  Do not let this rare occasion pass you by.  See you in Salisbury on Sept. 6th.   

The 68th National Square Dance Convention to be held in Atlanta, GA.  Go to their website at 68nsdc.com. for details and to register.  See you there.  

Circle 8's
 Yeah, it is again time to come to the Circle 8's this Thursday night.  Mischief and mayhem are in order each and every dance.  You will certainly be greeted with open arms as you enter the hall.  Will there be a left-handed recycle or a 1/2 load the boat?  There is only one way to find out, be there.  For directions and more info go to circle8s.info/.

Sylvan Squares

When you visit Sylvan Squares it is like visiting family.  The laughter, smiles, hugs, and a little dancing thrown in for good measure makes for an enjoyable evening.  How many squares will the hall hold?  Come fill it up and we could answer that question.  See you in Brevard, Friday,  September 26th.  Remember that the workshop starts at 6:30 PM.
Gateway Squares

A great turnout of nearly 3 squares made the latest Gateway Squares a great success.  Thank you dancers for your support.  Mark your calendar for August 13. 2016.  The Old Armory building in Waynesville will come alive starting at 6:30 pm.  As western North Carolina's newest PLUS  club, the dancing will be energetic and fresh.  

Smoky Mountain Squares

We meet again on August 27th..  This mainstream group will grow into one of the premier square dance groups in Western North Carolina.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  
August 9th:  NEW VIDEO BELOW.  Thanks to Donna and the Swinging Saints for posting it!
