Not a dancer yet? >>>Click Here<<<
Now you've graduated from your long winter of dance lessons and can't seem to get enough dancing in, we have a little something extra to share with you: In collaboration with our local clubs, your Council is sponsoring five free dances this summer.** Casual attire is fine at these two-hour square-dance-only dances. All dancers, both old and new, are welcome. So, hone your new-found skills and get to meet and dance to some of our talented local callers! See you in a square. (** Optional donations will be accepted for Toys for Tots.)
Bright yellow with black letters boasting Friendship Hands Across COCDC. Dancers can earn this dangle by attending a club dance at all ten-member clubs during a one-year period. Now that COCDC has grown and has ten active Plus level clubs, the form has been revised too. A club officer must sign and date the form at each new club dance you attend. When you've gotten all ten signatures, give the completed form to a COCDC Council Representative to receive your dangle! Spread the Friendship of Western Square Dancing throughout Central Ohio!
Below is a list of opportunities for mainstream or plus level square dancing in Central Ohio for the coming month. Other dance information (including information about higher level square dances, round dances, and beginner dance instruction) is available on our monthly calendar and our workshops and classes web pages.
