It's Time for the Annual Ice Cream Social. Come Dance on Friday, July 25th and Try the Best Ice Cream Our Members Can Make.
All Sylvan Squares members are encouraged to bring anything ice cream including toppings for the annual Ice Cream Social. Guests are encouraged to come and help us pack away some calories and then burn them up by dancing. See you all on Friday evening, July 25, in Brevard. Marty Northrup will be calling. We'll have a workshop at 6:30 including "smooth styling tips." Dance from 7:00 until 9:00. At 9:00 experienced dancers are encouraged to try 30 minutes of hex dancing. (There is a $5.00 / couple charge for the hex workshop.)
IT'S COMING! SYLVAN SQUARES' 35TH ANNIVERSARY DANCE IS ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 10. TIM MARRINER WILL BE CALLING, SO SAVE THE DATE!
Why Square Dance?
It Makes You Feel Good!
It gets you out of the house and with a group of friends and neighbors who are looking for laughter and enjoyment. Mistakes - and there can be many - are part of the fun because everyone, no matter the skill level or amount of experience, makes them. Opportunities to dance abound at Sylvan Squares, other clubs in WNC or almost anywhere around the world, and at such community events as Brevard's Founders' Day celebration.
And It's Good for You Too!
Square dancing is not particularly physically challenging but it burns calories - 200 to 400 per half hour. It helps keep dancers mentally sharp, too, as it requires learning the basic calls through instruction and practice and how to follow the ever changing combinations of calls created by our callers.

Here we are dancing for Transylvania County's 150th Anniversary Celebration in Brevard.
Our Have a Heart dance collected over $300 in cash and 232 pounds of household cleaning supplies and canned food for Sharing House, a Transylvania County-wide charitable organization. Sharing House will make them available to needy families throughout the county. Here are the cleaning supplies, canned goods, and checks being delivered to Angela Leopard, Sharing House's client services manager, by Bill Strang, Sylvan Squares' then presidident.
