Welcome To Classic City Squares
Welcome to Classic City Squares
*** MARCH 18, 2013 DANCE LOCATION CHANGE ***
For this night only we will not be dancing at our regular location due to a scheduling conflict. We will be dancing at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens, 780 Timothy Road, Athens, GA. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Classic City Squares is a Western Square Dance Club. We have Mainstream and Announced Plus tips each dance night. We dance on the 1st and 3rd Monday evenings of every month from 8PM to 10PM at the Watkinsville Community Center at 191 VFW Drive, Watkinsville GA 30677. Our Caller is Randy Ramsey from Suwanee, GA.
Classic City Squares came to be in 1973 when several members of the Happy Squares Club expressed a preference to dance on Saturday night. A group of 20 dancers formed Classic City Squares on April 14, 1973. Dances were held on the second forth Saturday with Buddy Phillips as club caller. Home for the club was the Whitehead Civitan Club until 2007 when we moved to the First United Methodist Church in downtown Athens.
The first square dance class sponsored by Classic City Squares started September 10, 1973. Since then classes have been held annually when there have been enough students to hold a class.
Classic City Squares danced at the Georgia Center in Athene, GA for the 1996 Summer Olympics.
Buddy Philips was caller from 1973 until 2001. Randy Ramsey took over calling duties in 2002.
Sis Eberhart is the only remaining charter member on our membership list.
