Tehachapi Gandy Dancers host Spring Fling Dance


Despite the wind and cold temperatures along with the clouds threatening rain and fog, the Tehachapi Gandy Dancers Square Dance Club hosted their Spring Fling Dance. People representing the Joaquin Squares from Bakersfield, the Bakersfield Rounders, the Aces & Deuces from Palmdale, and our own Tehachapi Gandy Dancers braved the elements to enjoy a night of dancing and camaraderie.

Rod Shuping graced us with outstanding calls and good humor for square dancing. Square dancers danced to a variety of music venues, from a number of country favorites to music from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

Darrell Beck provided a wonderful rendition of cueing for the round dances to sounds from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, plus some musical western favorites, leading dancers through some smooth footwork and graceful moves.

The next event hosted by the Tehachapi Gandy Dancers is the June Bug Dance at the Tehachapi Senior Citizen's Center at 500 East F Street on 24 June 2016. Brent Lively will be calling; Darrell Beck will provide the cues. Come out and join us!
