Our Friendship Dangle Gets a New Look...

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!

New Dancer Dances

So, you've finally taken the plunge and signed up for lessons with one of our clubs. Well, don't just show up for class once a week; get out and dance! Each year we put on a number of New Dancer Dances for our class members. Each dance is structured so that only the calls you have already been taught will be used at that dance. As the classes progress, so will our New Dancer Dances. Not only will dancing to different callers help you in the class, you'll gain experience and find out it's loads of fun. And it's even free! (What more can you ask?) So grab our New Dancer Flyer and dive in. We're looking forward to joining you in a square. PS: Experienced dancers are welcome, too.

Toys for Tots Dance

Toys for Tots is one of those Dances that you won't forget. It gives you the opportunity to have a great time dancing, and also giving a gift to a deserving child. Western Square Dancers have been involved for quite a few years. I only remember back to the 1970's. I believe Dewey Hart started the Toys for Tots dances with square dancers involved. Callers who were Chairman over the Years were Al Posey, Eddie Powell, and Bob Daye. Dancers Ruth Miller & Connie Williams arranged for halls. In 2012 COCDC became involved, eventually totally taking over the Job of arranging the dance and getting callers. At the beginning the Marines would come and stay at the dance for the full day and also take care of all the gifts. Now the Fire Department picks up the toys. So be sure to come and get involved and go away with a good feeling.
