TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Terre Haute Swinging Mates Square Dance Club celebrated their 65th anniversary.
Over 50 people attended the anniversary dance as they do si do to the beat of the music. Club president Cheryl Robinson says she was hesitant to learn square dancing in the beginning but eight years later, she is still enjoying herself.
The club will also be providing lessons to Girl Scouts in the near future. She added that it is very important it is to work with the next generation.
“We want to carry square dancing on as far as not just older people, younger people. There’s teen clubs all over the United States,” said Robinson.
Next year, the club will take their talents to Evansville, Ind. for the 71st annual National Square Dance Convention.
The Swinging Mates Square Dance Club is currently the oldest square dance club in Indiana.
