31st annual Spring Fling square and round dance set for April 23-25

Since 1979, Baker City’s local square dance club, Elkhorn Swingers, has hosted a three-day dance-filled weekend each spring to welcome square and round dancers from throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

This year’s event will run April 23-25 at Community Connection, 2810 Cedar St.  In addition to lots of dancing, participants may take home a treasure or two buying dance apparel at Ladybug Resale or win a bid during the silent auction, which features theme baskets, home-baked goodies, and even some local arts and crafts.

For those looking to dance or those just wanting to watch, the schedule of events includes:

•  Friday evening round dancing from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. with alternating square and round dancing afterward until 10 p.m.

•  Saturday afternoon there will be a round dancing workshop from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. followed by a square dancing workshop from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

•  Saturday evening is the main dance, which will feature a special guest caller and guest cuer with pre-rounds from 6:30 to 7 o’clock followed by alternating square and round dancing until 10 p.m. 

•  Sunday morning features the traditional Trail’s Out, light brunch and casual dancing from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Registration is $20 per person for all Friday through Sunday events. The individual dance costs are: $5 Friday, $2.50 each for the Saturday workshops, $7.50 for Saturday and $2.50 for Sunday brunch and dance.

For more information, call Judy Baker at 541-523-5096 or Esa Murrell at 541-524-9386.
