- Winning Ways Story
- Dave and Bonnie Harry (Friends@petticoatjct.com)
Dave and Bonnie Harry of Lynnwood, WA tell the story of how a program called First Friday Fun Fests, sponsored by their Whirlybird Square Dance Club, has worked to attract hundreds of dancers in its decade or so of operation. The Fun Fests are no-experience-necessary dances that the club runs once a month. They serve as a much needed window into, and an entry point for, our fun activity. The account provided at the link below explains the history of the idea, documents its success, and explains some of the measures that have made it work. It even provides a sample dance program for the event.
