Lake City Swingers

It's a fantastic, fun-filled, four-sided frolic.
There's music and dancing to set your toes tapping.
Put on your dancing shoes and come try it!

Add Fun, Fitness and Friendship to your life.
Set aside problems and forget world strife.
Music and Action helps Relax and Revive.
Achieving team success leaves you satisfied.
Dance worldwide to the same calls and cues.
There is a world of happiness waiting for you.

Two or more hours per week of constant but not too strenuous exercise.
It's equivalent to walking about five kilometers with added mental stimulation.
If you can walk, you can Square Dance.

Dancers come from all kinds of backgrounds.
They are brought together by their love of music and the synchronized action.

Come and experience this joyous recreation.
Many square, contra and round dancers develop a life long passion for the activity.

Lake City Swingers Club History

The Lake City Swingers began dancing on Tuesdays in 1982.
The caller was Stuart and Debbie Brink from 1982 until February of 1989 when Stu left for a job promotion to Ottawa.
Gerry and Bev O'Hara took over the calling and cueing from 1989 to 1991.
During this time Gerry was working on the construction of the new Grace Hospital.
When Gerry returned to New Brunswick, Dottie Welch took over and the dance night was changed to Thursday.
Dottie has been calling for the club since the fall of 1991.
We danced at several locations in Dartmouth before moving to North Woodside Community Centre in the fall of 2000.
