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!
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.
