C-1ders

C-1ders is the only Square Dance Challenge Club in Tucson! Formed in 1984 by the legendary Dave Kenney who also was the original caller, when Dave retired Bernie Weber and Rick Gittelman stepped in. Sadly, Dave and Bernie are both now gone and are missed dearly. Rick Gittelman continues the tradition with Ron Koehler calling when Rick travels.

This club is currently not dancing, but we encourage C-1 dancers to attend Rick A Shays. If we have enough C-1 dancers we’ll have star tips.

Rick A Shays and The Bunch

Advanced and Plus DBD dancing with Rick Gittelman

Founded in 1995, Rick A Shays features great ADVANCED dancing, and creative and interesting choreography with nationally known caller Rick Gittelman.

The Bunch Square Dance Club evolved out of a weekly afternoon Plus DBD workshop in 2019. Originally called the Sunday Bunch, we have changed our name because we have moved our dance day to Wednesdays. We expect to pick up where we left off with dancing fun and creative Plus DBD (non-standard application of calls) from many varied positions.

We meet on Wednesday afternoons, starting on October 20, 2021 at Music in Motion, 1980 W River Road, Suite #140, 85704 (at La Cholla). Schedule is: 12:00-2:00 pm – Advanced w/C1 Star Tips (if we have enough); 2:00-4:00 pm – Plus DBD. Cost is $8 person per session, or $10 for both. Casual dress.
