Riverside Gypsy Squares C175 Square Dance Club
We belong to the National Square Dance Camper Association (NSDCA) and the purpose is to provide an opportunity for and to encourage those interested in both modern western square/round dancing and camping.
We CAMP and SQUARE DANCE.
We meet on the 4th Friday, Saturday & Sunday, of each month from May to & incl. September.
Friday is our theme night and the organizing committee for that particular weekend, dream up a theme for the weekend and we dress accordingly on Friday. Saturday starts with coffee followed by a round or line dance workshop and then a square dance workshop. That afternoon there is some form of entertainment...maybe..crafts or scavenger hunt or fun golf or maybe swimming followed by a potluck supper. In the evening, is our Saturday night dance, square dance attire appreciated, followed sometimes by entertainment put on by the weekend committee and theme treats. Sunday is a non-denominational church service, then dancing and a must-go lunch.
All this is in the enclosed, well-lit REC HALL with fans, running water and a washroom. (we don't rough it).
Any Mainstream Level square dancer with a tent or camper is more than welcome to come for a weekend or dancing. You don't have to join NSDCA the first time - just visit and try us out.
For non-camping dancers, Saturday is our open dance and you are welcome to attend ($7.50 per person).
