C-1ders logo


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.

Green Valley Square And Round Dance Club invites YOU to join us in an activity which is fun for all ages, good mental and physical exercise, and is enjoyed around the world. Square dancing in Green Valley was started by Irma Schaffnit in 1965 and the club has been a focus for learning square dancing, having fun and forming new friendships.
