Several square dance clubs celebrated New Year’s Eve together.

We began the New Year square dancing with several other clubs in our area. Many of our members celebrated New Year’s Eve dancing with friends in Green Valley and Mesa. What a fun night.

Our regular plus dances continue on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom. Our energetic and enthusiastic new class meets on Sundays at 7:00 p.m. in the MountainView Fitness Center. Practice dances for the new class members are held on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. The Tuesday practice dance is also for anyone wanting to get back to square dancing. Check our calendar for location of dances as they may change.

There are many other events on our calendar. We are looking forward to our twentieth anniversary dinner dance at the MountainView Ballroom on January 29. We have reservations for more than 150 people. This will be the highlight dance of the year for our club and will include a slide show, dinner, dancing and a few surprises.

The Tucson Square Dance Festival is January 22 to 25 at the Radisson Suites Tucson. Then it is off to Yuma for their festival on February 13 to 15. No time to get bored. We have so many fun events planned.

On February 19 we are gathering at the Cadillac Chaparral for a green light red light dinner dance. Then it is off to the Catalina Recreation Center for a square dance on Thursday, February 26. Another dinner dance is planned for March 12 at the Oracle Inn. Wow, life is good!

The Sundancers sponsored a special dance on Sunday, January 11 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. featuring Bobby Poyner. Many of our members attended this dance. After the dance we met at the Olive Garden for dinner. What a great way to spend Sunday.

The Sundancers are also sponsoring a special dance on Sunday, March 15 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. featuring Mike Sikorsky. Then again on Wednesday, March 25 at 7:00 p.m. we will dance with caller Gary Shoemake with the Sundancers at Vistoso. The special dances are always well supported and enjoyed by our club.
