July and August 2016 Dances

Terry Halley
July 8th, Friday - Single Trees Hawaiian Beach Party dance with Terry Halley calling, and Jackie Gale cueing. Jackie will also be teaching a line dance at 7:15 p.m., so be there early if you want to learn it. The doors should be open by 7:05 p.m. Since it is a Hawaiian theme, wear your beach duds or just come casual since it is summer. It would be fun to have island snacks - see how creative you can be.

July 22nd, Friday - Single Trees dance with Lennie Ludiker calling, and Jackie Gale cueing. The line dancing will continue this time as well and most likely for the whole summer.  Before this dance (7:15 pm) Jackie will be reviewing Chili Cha Cha and Volcano. With the continuing summer weather, we will continue to be casual for clothing, even with our air conditioning.

Aug 12th, Friday - Mike Halley calling and Jackie Gale cueing. Just a good summer dance. Come and get cool with us. Love that air conditioning!

Jim Voll calling last March
Aug 26th, Friday - Western Hoedown with Jim Voll calling and Jackie Gale cueing. Wear your "cool weather" western gear.
