Have you Reversed your Flutter or done the Grand Square, these are just some of the
moves used at an International level in Modern American Square Dancing. Come and
learn these and other moves on a Wednesday afternoon at Woodlands Church Hall, Wetherby
The Harrogate group [or Strayside Squares] is taught by John Kozyra, John has been
a Square Dance caller and teacher for about ten years, having taught many of the
local dancers over this period. John has recently called for the Warrington U3A group
[Warrington Golden Squares] at their Christmas party. This was the first time that
these dancers have had a 'live' caller as they are being taught from CDs and tapes
by their group leaders, the dancers were so impressed that they are organising a
visit to Harrogate on the Wed 13th April to combine some sight seeing and to be able
to dance on the Wednesday afternoon. In view of this John is giving an open invitation
to all square dancers to attend, inclusive of a U3A group in York and any of the
local or international dancers who may wish to attend.
The dance will be held at Woodlands Church Hall from 1-30p.m. to 3-30p.m. with light
refreshments at a cost of £2.00 for the session. For more information please contact
Just a few lines further to the above as some non U3A members could be attending
this dance I propose to run it under the sponsorship of my registered club in Knaresborough
[The Chain Gang], this means we will have full insurance cover for the event.
The Chinese New Year was celebrated at the Horoscope Restaurant together with all
the classes that Breffni teaches. This is an annual event and much enjoyed by everyone.
Tai Chi continues at Bilton on Mondays and Jennyfield on Thursdays. For times and

Please note that there will be no Tai Chi on Monday, 14th March, as Breffni, the
