on Saturday 17 September 2022 Peter Scott and I held an easy level dance at Salisbury. The idea of this Dance was to welcome newer dancers to feel accepted at a dance with other clubs and to hear callers that they may not have danced to before. We had dancers from more than our two clubs and everybody mixed well and had a lot of FUN.
We also invited Ian Rutter and Ros Turnbull to call as well and they too were well received by the dancers’
With more than two squares of dancers enjoying easy dancing – limited this time to SSD week 9 – and everyone was enthusiastic about having another similar dance in the future.
On Saturday afternoon PaddleSteamers Dance Group had their 13th Birthday Dance in Victor Harbor.
There was at times six squares dancing and everyone had a really fun time – There was 3 brackets for the Learners and everyone enjoyed the Calling by Les Tullock. We had Graham Elliott, Ian Rutter, Jeff Seidel, Roz Turnbull, Scotty Scott, Ivan Cooke and Myself [John Casey] calling on the programme.
JVCSQUAREDANCE group is no longer active – but we still are active at other venues.
On 2nd October 2021 some of our group visited the half way dance at Port Parham Sports & Social Club. There was 4 squares dancing and some interesting entertainment enjoyed by all. Here are some photos of the event.
Our Square Dance Club – JVC Square Dance at Carrickalinga House Victor Harbor is having it’s 6th Birthday Dance at the Lutheran Church Hall on Adelaide Road. We will welcome any member of the public to come along and see what modern Square Dancing is like at no cost – We are a fun and friendship group – Any one who wishes to do so can have a try at dancing with us on the day. I will put on a couple of intro dances on the day.
JVC Square Dance has been travelling well for 4 weeks this year – most of the time we have had a full square and have been relearning some more common movements – I have been sneaking in a few extras just to keep everyone on their toes. We do have to thank Carl and Karen for coming all the way from Adelaide to help us along – new dancers are welcome at any time – no experience necessary – We just teach you to walk to music – that is all square dancing is. At our group nobody makes mistakes – some just don’t do what was intended – but that just makes more fun for us – the world needs more smiles.
JVC Square Dance had it’s 5th Birthday Dance on Saturday 13th April – John plus seven other callers [ 6 came from Adelaide] had 5 squares of dancers enjoying themselves from 1.30pm to 4pm – There was a presentation of a plaque from the South Australian Square Dance Society in recognition of it’s 5 years. If you are interested in enjoying some brain and body exercise then come along any Tuesday afternoon at Carrickalinga House from 1.30 to 4pm – $5.00 entrance fee includes tea coffee and biscuits at smoko time.
