2020 Circle 8 Dance Season

Hello Everyone – it has been awhile since we have last shared any updates. The Covid-19 season has altered everyone’s plans in many ways. Circle 8 is no exception.

At this time – we are tentatively planning our back to the season dance on September 13, 2020 – subject to any further updates. Tammy Gough will be calling with Kevin Denning leading the rounds. We will finish up our Card them from 2019, so be sure to bring your best hand for fun and prizes.

Social Distancing Continued….

Circle 8 and the Square Dancing community are supporting the call for social distancing to help minimize the spread of the Covad-19 virus. As a result, we are all making tremendous sacrifices in many ways, including not square and round dancing.

The following cancellations are happening in our immediate area:

Wichita Spring Festival – April 3-4, 2020 – is cancelled
Circle 8 April Dances – are cancelled
Kansas State Square Dance Convention – June 5-6, 2020 – is cancelled

We hope to see everyone in a square or on the dance floor soon. In the mean time, stay safe and healthy!

2020 March 22 – No Dance

It is our sincerest regrets that we have chosen to cancel our dance with Scott Bennett and Betty Skillett on March 22, 2020. These are challenging times and the Circle 8 club wants to reduce the temptation to collect in larger groups to help mitigate any health risks.

We will continue to review future dances and keep everyone posted. As always, keep safe and help promote a health environment.

We look forward to seeing you in a future square and round dance!
