Circle 8 Dances

Circle 8 Square and Round dance has temporarily ceased all dance activities to promote social distancing and reduce the chances for Covid-19 pandemic spread. We are disappointed as much as many are, but feel it is the right choice at this time. Please continue to do your part in reducing the spread possibilities and we will be back to dancing sooner than later.

2020 September 13 – Celebrating Dancing

Sunday, September 13, Circle 8 is starting up the new dance season after a long separation among the Covid-19 concerns. Tammy Gough and Kevin Denning will be sharing their Square Dance calling and Round Dance cueing with us. Dancing starts with rounds at 6:30pm with squares starting at 7:00 pm.

We are being cautious though. We have hand sanitizer and temperature checks to support. While we encourage dancers to enjoy the evening with us, we do discourage those that are not feeling well, or are just not comfortable in the current environment. We understand.
