SARA HODGE, President     I was thrilled to attend Capital City Squares’ summer open house sessions and become part of the 2015 New Dancer class. I went alone but instantly felt at home. Since then, I have learned Plus level as both Girl and Boy and am serving as President of the Board as well as the Club’s delegate to the Associated Square Dancers of Superior California. I am proud to be a part of this fabulous, welcoming group of people who thoroughly enjoy square dancing and always keep it fun!

ALI BENGS, Secretary   I started dancing with Capital City Squares in September of 2016. Up until then, I thought square dancing must be a geeky parent activity (my mother has been square dancing for decades). CCS has an inclusive, cheerful spirit which makes dancing enjoyable and engaging. I am proud of the diversity our club membership represents in the wider square dancing community. As a club and Board member, I hope to continue to spread the jubilant, esprit de corps that defines CCS.

PALMA LOWER   I came to square dancing through same-sex partner ballroom dancing and the Sacramento historical dance community. If you have ever danced a quadrille or a reel, you already know the first 25 square dancing calls! After attending the first Open House, I was hooked, and I have since learned to dance both “boy” and “girl” positions through the Plus level and am now learning Advanced. It has been a privilege, as well as great fun, dancing with the Capital City Squares, and I am honored to serve them as a member of the Board.

TOM KAISER, Treasurer   A tennis buddy invited me in the Fall of 2004 to try “gay square dancing”. I loved it, and got hooked. It is the fun, energy, and nice people of gay square dancing that keeps me coming every week to club night. After dancing for many years, I wanted to “give back to the community” by serving on the board of directors. I am committed to promoting and marketing the joy of square dancing, recruiting new dancers to the activity, and helping to develop new dancers through my square dance calling.

KEVIN RHODES   Welcome to Capital City Squares. By last count we have been a club since 1981. I joined in 2011 with the new dancer class in September. It has been a joy; and became a passion to learn the sport, the thrill, the challenge of square dancing. Dancing keeps my mind sharp and muscles moving. You have never found a better group of people who share in this experience. The caller calls, the dancers move in unison. When it clicks there is an adrenaline high, and smiles all around. We hug, by the way. Come join us!
