Dangle Dances

Greater Cincinnati Dance Federation Dangle Dances


Dance, Dance, Dance! The best way to become a better dancer is to dance often.  Visiting other clubs is a great way to do this because experiencing other callers allows you to experience differing methods.  This variety will help you grow in your knowledge and not be stuck in the same old, same old pattern. .  


Frontier Squares seeks opportunities to network with other clubs to give you the best chance at becoming a great square dancer.  In addition to attending our scheduled Banner Raids and Retrievals, we would love to see you earn even more dangles by participating in The Greater Cincinnati Dance Federation's (GCDF) "Dangle Dances".


The GCDF's Dangle Dances were put on hold due to the pandemic.  We are excited they have been reinstated for the 2023 Dance Season!



This year's theme will be "Jazzy Summer," in support of the 2024 Ohio Dance Convention's theme: "Roaring in the '20s" (which is being organized with the help of many Frontier Squares members and leaders).  Our Banner Raid Chair, Russ DeMaris, will arrange the Banner Raids for all the Dangle Dance held between May 1st and September 23rd.



The rules for any dancer to qualify for a dangle through the GCDF remains the same as in years past:

    1. The dancer or couple must have a hard copy of The Greater Cincinnati Dance Federation Dangle Dance Form.  The form will be attached here once it has become available, or you may pick up a hard copy during one of Tuesday classes or Friday dances.  Only one (1) form is needed per couple.
    2.  Six (6) Dangle Dances must be attended.
    3.  A club officer must initial your form at each dance.
    4. Once your form is completed, please give it to Peggy Carney, Russ DeMaris or Becky White (Frontier Squares GCDF Representatives), and they will get them turned in at the next Federation meeting.
