The Little Brown Jug "Western" Square Dance Club is a fun club that offers both rounds and squares and is open to both singles and married couples. Founded in 1986, our club still offers both plus and mainstream dancing. We are the only square dance club in Delaware County but we travel to all clubs within our Central Ohio Council of Dance Clubs as well as those within a 1½ hour driving range. Our members attend all Ohio and many national square dance conventions.
The club logo represents our great pride in the community's annual Little Brown Jug Horse Race. It is tradition for us to do demo dances at both the First Friday Delaware Main Street event and Delaware County Fair. We also dance at schools, historical societies and nursing homes in addition to supporting other club and Council recruitment events.
