Thomas Square Dance with Custard Standard Time

March 27, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5

What time is it? Custard Standard Time!

It’s the time you’ve all been waiting for: the Thomas square dance is back this March 27th, 7pm at the Thomas Education Center (324 Brown St).

Calling by Dave Shomberts and music by Custard Standard Time with Nate Druckenmiller and Kevin Chesser.

Be there *and* be square!

Dances started up in December 2012, reviving Tucker County after decades without square dances. Many talented musicians and callers travel from around the state to call dances, and play music for Thomas square dance. All ages and beginners are welcome, at each dance you’ll find both. Dances vary between four couple set and big circle squares. They are held at the Thomas Education Center at 324 Brown Street, next to the Catholic Church. Admission is $5 adults and $3 for students. Community pot lucks starts at 7pm, followed by a beginner workshop, and dancing starts around 8pm.

Traditional four-couple set square dances and mountain circle, also known as “big circle,” dances are called by local dance callers to live old-time music. “Round dances,” such as waltzes and two steps are often played between squares at most locations. No experience or partner is required. Whether you dance or not, the joy of square dancing to live fiddle music entertains both dancers and wall flowers alike. Beginners and children are always welcome, and as caller Mack Samples says, “These old dances are simple, you can learn them in no time.”

Information subject to change. Please keep checking back for details.
