Clemmons dance COOKOUT Tuesday August 8!!
Special event ! Our very own COOKOUT/Potluck for all our dancers and their friends! You must RSVP for your favorite meat. You can do this online (coming soon).  We are supplying various meat items because of donations received for the purpose (you too may donate if able!). Sign up to bring various potluck side items to share too. This is going to be a fabulous feast!

The Cookout is a perfect time for members to use their guest passes to invite their friends who have never danced with us for their first time. If you did not get to pick up your passes don’t worry, you may pick some up at the door on  the day of the event so the people you brought can get into the dance FREE!

July 18 – Such a nice dance last night in Clemmons! Thanks to our caller, Nick Boulet for helping the new people along. He called some fun dances with a few more challenging ones thrown in to keep us “on our toes”. Thanks to Mark Gaines on sound, we could hear everything fine and still be able to converse with our partners and neighbors during the dance as our fine band, Reel Shady filled the hall with happy tunes. See you at the next dances in August!
