Coordinators Club History and Program

The Coordinators formed out of a Plus Class that began in January of 1988.
The first club dance was held Monday, September 18, 1989 at Findlay Community Centre.
We began with four callers on a rotating schedule with Hot Mike nights planned periodically.
The original callers were Dottie Welch, Kerry Fletcher, Wade Savage and Mark Savage.
We chose the name Coordinators because "Coordinate" is a move on the Plus list and
we felt we were acting as coordinators of plus dancers and callers in the Metro area at the time of formation.

We moved to Prince Arthur Junior High then to Saint Peter's Parish Centre and our calling staff shrank to one dedicated caller, Dottie Welch.
Dottie continues to hones our skills at Plus and provides ongoing entertainment and variety.
We have been dancing on Monday evenings at North Woodside Community Centre since September of 2000.
