Open house encourages do-si-do’ing

The Travelling Squares host an open house on Sept. 27 at Wellington Hall.

All join hands and circle wide, spread right out like an old cow hide.

That’s exactly what will be happening next weekend when the Travelling Squares hold their square dancing open house.

The Travelling Squares open house takes place on Sept. 27 at Wellington Hall and will be excellent opportunity for anyone thinking of getting into square dancing.

“The open house night will be a social for people to meet and mix,” Travelling Squares spokeswoman Wendie Harrington said. “We usually have coffee and tea and goodies to serve at the end of it.”

The open house is open to anyone of all ages and no experience is needed.

“As long as you can walk, you can dance,” she said.

It is also designed to show residents of the Harbour City that square dancing is a great way to get exercise and have fun.

“Everybody, at least I think, has a preconceived idea about square dancing as this thing from the olden days where they had the twangy Western music and everybody dresses up funny,” Harrington said.. “We dance to the Eagles, we dance to Elvis. There is a wide variety of music used.”

The free open house takes place on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at Wellington Hall, 3922 Corruna Ave. A regular dance will follow the open house.
