Circle 8 is having a special dance on April 24 with Jim Howard from Oklahoma City. For those that have never danced to Jim, they are in for a treat. We are doing something special also this dance. Instead of pre-rounds, Jim will be leading us with Hexagon Squares – six couple dancing.

So join us at 5:30, April 24, 2022 for hexagon squares with Jim, then the mainstream (with two plus tips) will start at 6:00pm. We are dancing at the Park City Senior center in Park City, Kansas — just North of Wichita, KS.

From 2:00-4:30pm, Circle 8 is hosting the Gold district tenderfoot dance. All new dancers can attend for free and dance to area callers and cuers. It is a great opportunity to meet the new dancers and dance to some callers you may not have heard yet.

At 5:30pm, Circle 8’s regular dance starts with Kevin Denning providing pre-rounds. You may even be able to dance to Diane as well! At 6:00-8:30pm, Jonathan Marshall from Oklahoma City will be sharing his calling talent with same great dancing tips with more rounds in between.

Finally, we have not left out dinner. During the hour break between the tenderfoot and the dance, Circle 8 members are hosting a chili feed.

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!
