JVC Square Dance is back in action

On Tuesday afternoon at Carrickalinga House we danced with a Square of Dancers and had a man spare. It was good to come back from our National Convention Break to find we were still able to dance a Square. Jacqueline danced and I called at a number of Clubs on our Trip back from the Convention. We attended Happy Trails at Southport, Alan’s Allemanders at Logan, Burleigh Squares at West Burleigh on the Gold Coast, Taloumby Square Dance Group at Coffs Harbour, B-bar-H at Toukley, Carpenter & Co at Tuggerah and at Acey Squares at Naracoorte. Jacqueline was danced out by the time we arrived home and was happy to have a week to rest up before we started Club dancing again. Remember we are always happy to see new faces come through the door at Victor Harbor Seniors at Carrickalinga House which is right next to the Woolworths / Target Carpark. If you are looking at the front of Traget then look right and you will see Carrickalinga House. We start at 1.30pm and the first hour is really easy level – for beginners if we have any. Love to see your there for Fun Friendship and some Gentle exercise.

Dancing in Victor Harbor is Going Well.

Victor Harbor Square Dancing is on the move. We have started well and continue to grow. I am teaching our learners a quick track to Standard Application Basic and Mainstream. The Basic is concentrated on before smoko then after we start brushing up on our Mainstream. We were visited by Eddie and Rosalie from Sunset Twirlers while they were staying on the Fleurieu Coast. We had a really Successful 2nd Birthday Dance with 5 Squares Dancing at one time. I did include 2 brackets of Basic Dancing to include our Learners in what is now their Groups Birthday. Square Dancing should include our Learners as early as possible to introduce them to the enjoyment of the activity that we hope they will stay with for a long time. If we do not include them we will lose them [ meaning for the activity as a whole ]. We had a number of our dancers attending Sunset Squares 21st Birthday Dance at Marion. I counted 6 Squares Dancing at one time with still a lot of people sitting out. It was great to see and hear the calling of David Todd from Sydney. Happy Birthday Sunset Squares. It was nice to have a Visitor from Victoria – Julie from Stradbroke Squares, Rosedale.

Victor Harbor Square Dancing Still Going Strong

JVC Square Dance

Square Dance Whales

Square Dancing in Victor Harbor is going well. We had 4 members attending the Allabout Squares 8th Birthday Celebrations. It was a wonderful weekend of dancing with a full dance floor. There were six callers including the Special Guest Caller – Richard Muir. Nice to have Trish [Sunset Twirlers] visit us whilst holidaying at Victor Harbor and Trevor & Elaine Hunt visiting us as well. Our Learners are doing real well and already learning some Mainstream moves and also about to discover the confusing aspects of the many circulates. Happy Dancing Everyone.

The Dance Year has Commenced for 2016

The first three weeks has shown a remarkable start for the year of 2016. We have three new dancers so far who have shown an amazing standard of learning. We have not seen any of the learners from last year – they may have decided to have a different challenge this year. We were still able to dance some easy mainstream after smoko. We are of course looking for more beginners or even Mainstream Dancers to build up our numbers. If there is anyone out there who wants a different challenge – then try Modern Square Dancing at 1.30pm on Tuesdays.
