Round 2 – MVDC SPW!

Alright newly graduated dancers, rev your engines.

Secure yourself in a good corner of a square with your angel.

Ken Roberts will wave the checkered flag from the callers box.

The air is thick with music that just begins with an awesome beat.

On your mark, get set and GO!

Allow yourself to be immersed in the drivers seat and take your Angel along the ride for instructions on explode the wave, flip the diamond, linear cycle, and extend. Ken Roberts will take you all to the finish line in the winners circle with photos flashing and the Clinton County Country Squares and Gem City Squares Angels!

Everyone is a winner learning the art and awesomeness of squaring.

Kudos to Fred Organ, Ken Roberts, CCCS and Gem City Squares for one heck of a learning drive in squaring.

Celebrate MSP SPW!

There’s a party going on all summer at the Michael Solomon Pavilion! The Miami Valley Dance Council rocks specific Monday nights with newly graduated students to reinforce Plus Calls at our Summer Plus Workshops It was kicked off on Monday, June 3rd with Ray Beavers gliding the dancers through these oldie but goodie calls: teacup chain, tag the line, peel off/peel the top and fan the top! Cardinal Squares and Concord Cloverleafs provided plenty of angels to assist the 19 students! We hope that everyone can join us next week, when the Ken Roberts comes for a swing along with Clinton County Country Squares and Gem City Squares!

MVDC MSP Fiesta Benefit Square Dance

Please enjoy the highlights from our Sunday, March 31, 2019 Michael Solomon Pavilion Fiesta Benefit Dance with Jack Pladdys and Elaine Wintrow. The dance was well attended and phenomenal. Thank you all for making this such a special event! The MSP is very much loved and such a treasure to all.

Sharin’ Mo’ Squarin’ Luv

Did this blog post title catch your eye?

Did it make you think twice?

Asking yourself, does the title actually state, “Sharin’ Mo’ Squarin’ Luv”‘?

What? Please explain this anomaly….

…Well, to keep my chatter to a minimum, it doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from, if there is anyone who has a concern or need – the dancing community is always there at the drop of a pin.  If the alert is made, no questions are asked.  Everyone stands at attention ready to pitch in and lend a helping hand.  

This again was evident on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at the special dance that was held in honor of Pam Courts at Venus and Mars Square Dance Club in Cincinnati.  The attendance seemed like an open sea that stretched for miles and miles.  All afternoon, the dancers were on a stream line cruise of squares, rounds and lines.  Thanks to Jack and Sherry Pladdys, who planned and executed this event!  Also thanks to Ken Roberts, Travis Cook, Gene Record, Jason Raleigh, Tom and Bernice Davis, Stuart Lewis, Carl and Carol Schnaupper and Barb and Tim Bennett for making it an awesomely fun time!

Ray Owens provided pictures and videos of this special day!

So, to paraphrase, this dance is a living true example of the joy, luv and compassion that is shared inside of our close knit family – no wonder this article helped you figure out why – we were “Sharin’ Mo’ Squarin’ Luv!”

(I am so proud and honored to be apart of this magic.  Thank you all so much for being like family to me. You are all a true blessing.  I have written this article with a sincere heart.  Much love.  Colleen Germann)
