Recent Events:

Circle 8's
What an interesting night we had on October 6, 2016.  Scoot Back was the featured call for the workshop.  The uncertainty surrounding triple scoot was quickly removed.  I could not come up with any formations from which scoot back could be done during the evening.  We did right, left, mixed sex, 1/4 tag, box in center, even as couples, wow.  Great job Circle 8's.  Congratulations are in order as we have had seven members join our club in the last two weeks. 
                Cardinal Squares  
Mark your calendars for November 11, 2016. Our exciting program will feature an introduction to PLUS dancing on the 3rd tip!!!  With  the first couple of tips as a warm up, you will be ready to ramp it up with plus.  Then the 4th tip will be full plus.  With the variety mix with Linda Cauble on lines, you are sure to have a good time at Cardinal Squares.
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,  October, 14th.  Remember that the workshop starts at 6:30 PM.
Gateway Squares

A great turnout of nearly 2 squares made the latest Gateway Squares a great success.  Thank you dancers for your support.  Mark your calendar for October 8. 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

The Smoky Mountain Squares will be combined with the Gateway Squares.  I believe that the crowds will be better with the plus level.  The next dance will be on October 8, 2016.
