C-1ders

Challenge yourself at 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 to keep C-1ders alive in Tucson. Sadly, Dave and Bernie are both now gone and are missed dearly.

Rick Gittelman continues the tradition with Ron Koehler calling when Rick travels.

Green Valley Square and Round Dance Club

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 Green Valley Square and Round Dance Club has been a focus for learning square dancing, having fun and forming new friendships ever since then.

We are fortunate to have as our square dance instructor and caller Rick Gittleman who has a wealth of experience in teaching and calling. And we are also fortunate to have Lynn Van Atta as our Round Dance Cuer and teacher, certainly one of the better cuers in the country.

Come and join us for our free introductory dance party in the fall, come and learn at basic class, and see what a great hobby this can be. Dress for the introductory dance is casual as is the dress for classes and workshops. Details of schedule and venues are below; drop-in class fee is $7; workshop and club dance fee is $6 for Green Valley Recreation (GVR) members and $8 for non-GVR members. While this is a GVR club, non- GVR members are always welcome to participate. Feel free to call if you have questions. Hope to see you on the dance floor!
