Upcoming Events

Believe it or not, spring is coming and perhaps you are feeling a bit confined staying inside with all the snow and cold!! Maybe you are looking for some opportunities to get out and do something different. We certainly have our weekly outings to our club here, but there are other opportunities coming up you might want to look in to.
Nothing more appropriate to get out of the winter doldrums than attending Swing Into Spring! Certainly something to look forward to coming up this May 4-6 at the South Grenville District High School in Prescott, ON. This will be a square and rounds event with dancing and workshops available covering many levels. Cuers for this event will be Roy and Janet Williams from Amherst, MA. The Williams have been active in the round dance community for many years and have been involved in several round dance associations on different levels. They have a lot of experience to offer and you will enjoy learning and dancing with them. On the square dance side, there will be basic, mainstream, plus and A1 dancing and workshops available. Gary Winter and Jerry Jestin will be your callers for the weekend. There will also be a Mother’s Day Dance on the Sunday to wind things down. Registration form is available for download on our site here. Get your registration in before Apr 2 for a slightly reduced cost. The EoDance website has a page dedicated to Swing Into Spring where you can see what the schedule is. Check it out!
The first weekend of June-WOW will be on in London, ON. This is a very well organized festival with lots of dancing and teaches phase 3-5. Lunch and dinner are provided on Saturday and accommodation with breakfast provided at Fanshawe College. This year’s clinicians will be Curt and Tammy Worlock from Plant City, Florida. They bring lots of years of experience with them and if you are looking for a bit more challenge to your dancing, this weekend is for you. This weekend is June 1-3 and the registration flyer can be found on our website here.
London, ON will once again be offering lots of dance experiences when the 2018 National Square and Round Dance Convention arrives in town July 19-21. Lots of square and round dancing available covering many levels. Jerry and Bonnie Callen are Round Dance Chair for this convention so you can expect a good round dance experience. Again, the registration form can be found on our website here.
Thinking ahead, and a little closer to home, Capital Carousels will once again be having Capital Caper-October 26+27 at Parkdale United Church. Once again, we will be having the ever popular Steve and Irene Bradt to put us through our paces and providing us with some new dance knowledge and new dances to dance. Please mark your calendars to keep the spot open. Flyers will be available soon and our dedicated Capital Caper page will once again be open on our website in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Well, we have no excuses not to be dancing. We seem to have some dandy opportunities coming up. Mark your calendars and make dancing a part of your upcoming plans.
