More than 3,100 dancers attended the 67th National Square Dance Convention in Kansas City, MO. I was one of those lucky dancers! The Convention offers a variety of programming for attendees including squares, rounds, lines, contra, education panels, seminars, sewing clinics, and plenty of opportunities for networking with attendees from around the world! We danced from 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM Thursday through Saturday and had an absolute blast! I had so much fun seeing old friends and making new ones too! I've posted a short slideshow below.
In September, I attended my first KY State Square Dance Convention!
I had a blast calling and dancing at the Wisconsin State Square & Round Dance Convention. This was my first time calling and dancing in Wisconsin and I felt very welcome! So glad Mom and Dad let me tag along on their trip!
This weekend was especially memorable as this was my first time calling with a live band! Shout out to the Siegmann family for providing outstanding live music for the Inspiration hour and during the last hour of dancing! Check out the video of my song with the band and some pictures from the weekend below!
Our family had a lot to celebrate in the past 6 months!
To celebrate all of our achievements, we threw a party! We were honored to have so many family and friends come out to celebrate with us. And what party would be complete without a square dance? Thanks to Tom Davis for the squares (Teresa and Andrew wanted to dance too!) and Pat Bryant for the rounds. And a special thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate & dance with us! We had a great time!
See you in a square soon!
