Richard Lane

Single Trees Dances:

9th - Richard Lane and Jackie Gale are caller and cuer for this dance. Plus is always at 7:30 pm, with rounds and mainstream starting at 8:00 pm until 10:30 pm.  We usually have a sit-down break at 9:15 pm.
Richard Lane is a 13 year veteran of the national circuit but obviously never made it out west or at least not to Oregon until he got hired up in Portland by the phone company a few years ago. He is an excellent caller, fast-paced, clear-voiced, funny and witty with a great singing voice.  He has a website online and calls in the Portland area as much as he can.  He's called for us a few times; if you haven't had the opportunity, you are missing out. See you there!
Scott Zinser

25th - Scott Zinser and Jackie Gale are caller and cuer for our Halloween Dance. So dress up, and vie for one of the prizes in several categories.  It is always a fun night and Scott is a good caller. So members, bring your finger foods and everyone be ready for a good time. Dance, dance, dance!!

Square Dance Lessons:

Square Dance Lessons (Mainstream) start October 6th, a Tuesday, but still accepting new students on Oct. 8th and October 13th.  There are two lessons per week which means greater retention, finishing faster and FUN! This is modern square dancing which is different than what we learned back in junior high, but a few moves would be familiar. 

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Cost: $2 per person  (What a deal!)
Who: Everybody and anybody. If you can walk you can square dance.

Roger Putzler
Teacher and Caller: Roger Putzler has been calling and square dancing since he was 10 years old back in Chicago. Roger and his wife Linda live in Albany. They are both retired educators.

If you already square dance and wish to learn the Plus level, please stay after the Mainstream class on Thursdays starting October 8.  Plus lessons will run from 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm on Thursday evenings. ($5)

AND … we need angels for both mainstream and plus lessons. For those wanting to learn Plus - come and angel for mainstream, and then stay for Plus lessons on Thursdays at 8:30 pm.
