In celebration of the wonderful summer weather that the Cariboo experienced this year, the William Lake Square Dancers did what they do best.
They had fun dancing.
It wasn’t your usual dancing, however.
In August, they took to the waters of Felker Lake while attending a barbecue hosted by long-time square dancers Jo Anne and Bert Bibby.
Local square dance caller Nick Turner put the dancers through their paces with some unusual calls such as Dive Through and Splash Your Partner.
Much laughter ensued and Turner informed the dancers that they had fulfilled the qualifications for earning an AquaDuck Badge.
Now that summer is over, the dancers are looking forward to the start of the new square dance season.
The Williams Lake Square Dance Club has been offering fun and laughter to the community for 54 years and this year will be no exception.
“New dancers are welcome; the more the merrier,” says club president Marie Gibbons.
“No experience is needed and no special clothing. Just come out and meet new friends. Dance for fun and exercise.”
The Williams Lake Square Dance Club will be offering nine sessions for new dancers, starting on Friday, Oct. 19, at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre on Fourth Avenue in Williams Lake. Sessions are from 7 to 9 p.m. and $5 each per evening.
Grandparents, parents and children at least 10 years old are all welcome to participate.
To reserve a spot call Marie at 250-392-5360 or Nick Turner at 250-392-2432 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
