April 30,2005 l. Recruitment Brochures - Attachedis this year'sversionof the recruitment brochure. The designwas simplified, and spacewas left on the back to insert relevant dates and times. This is a sample copy. The actualbrochureswill be printed on special brochure PaPer. 2. New Student Welcome - Squore is an edited,updatedversionof an information Up sheetthat was usedby WSD in the past.

1'\'EL-O&tL Iu -iijL,"itl }rL-'r-1,rr-'i. You'reembarkingonanexcitingnewventure. Inthecourseof the weeksand months to follow, you will discovera hobby that can provide fun, niw friends and alifetime of enjoyment.What we do is Modem WestemSquare Dancing--it's what many of us remember noi doing in school (that was the traditional form of dance,the "Virginia Reel" for example).In bothkinds of dancing,gro.rp, of eight people(calledsers) follow instructionsfrom a caller. A few of the calls are the same,but that's about where the similarityends. In traditionaldancing,couples took tums doingeachcall. It wasn'tnecessary know how to do to the stepsahead time. If you werenew, you just took the #4 positionin the square.By the time you'd seenthe of threeexperienced couples the call in turn, you knew what to do. do A call is simply a certainnumberof steps particulardirections.Somecallsare only four or six steps, in and you takeeachstepto one beatof the music. Then therearelongercalls,most of which arejust combinations short of callsyou akeady know. In your class, you leam first to do the simplermoves,then to put them together into more complexpatterns.If you werewatchinga square dancefrom the ceiling,looking down on the squares, would it look like a kaleidoscope--as dancers the stepthroughthe calls,the squaies changi formation-lines,diamonds, squares, circles, boxes,columns,and something calledoce&n wayes. r coplestill do the traditionaldance, butModern WesternSquare Dancingis much morepopularnowadays.you follow the caller's instructions, everyone but doesthe call at the sametirne. It's much morechallenging, and we think it's more fun. What makesthis exciting (in addition to the camaraderie and greatmusic) is the incredible feelingyou get from being able to do this in cooperationwith sevenother peoplewithout talking! As a hobby,square dancingis hard to beat--it's socialand exercise. You only needeightdancers plusa caller(or a squaredancerecording)to dancefor an evening. You don't haveto have expensive equipment,ind you can even do it in your kitchen. In fact,WestemStarDancers started a kitchen! And if you *u.tt to go visit anotherclub in or attenda big dance,the costof an evening's dancingis usuallylessthan for a movie! Usually with snacks provided! WELCOME TO THE WESTERN STAR DANCERSI wsp is a Modem WesternSquare DanceCtub for the LGBT community and friends. We are a non-profit, incorporated,non- competitiveclub forme din 1982 to provideclasses square and danceopportunities. areveryproud of the club'sheiitage,and we constantly We try to keepthe club orientedto the needsof its members, with our original objectives mind. in We'realsoa socialclub--and havepotlucks, we picnics,workshops, all kindsof parties- just aboutany excuse and to get togetherwill do! We promiseyou a warm, friendly group that is working hard to make WSD a very fine organization. We'lIbe countingon you to help us meetour goal. THE OVERALL SQUARE DANCE SCENfE Therearethousands squaredanceclubs overthe of all S', Canada, Europeand Japan,and somein otherplaces, too. You'll be ableto dancealmosteverywhere you go! Most of theseare straightclubs,and dancingwith them is just a little bit different. There are also more tiran 60 gayclubsin the U.S., Canada, Denmark,and Japan. Modem WesternSquare All Dancingis guidedby the square dancecaller's association, which is known as Callerlab.

Callerlabhas standardized the dancecalls. Students over the world leam the samecalls, which is why all all dancers programs.Invery everywhere can dancetogether. Callerlabhas divided the calls into groups calTed generalterms,the simplercalls are in the Mainstreamprogram.Then, there'sthe Plus program,which is the most popularprogram amongboth gay and straightdancersin the U.S. There are alsoAdvanced and Challenge programs, which arebeyondthe scope our club. WSD teaches in of classes the Mainstreamand Plus programs, which comprisearound a hundred calls altogether. Westem Star is just one of the primarily gay squaredanceclubs, and gay square dancingis just a subgroup the big square of lesbians dancepicture. So why did it start? Out-of-the-closet and gaymen weren't and/ or aren'treadily accepted socially in the rest of the squaredanceworld. But gradually overthe years,we seebarrierseroding. WesternStarDancersarevery good dancers.We follow the universal square dancecustoms when we go to dancewith otherpeople(we'11be in too). Thesetwo teaching these the class, thingsmake us very desirableto have on any dancefloor.

International Associationof Gay SquareDanceClubs

We have our own association,the Intemational Association of Gay SquareDance Clubs (IAGSDC), which is very active in the promotion of square dancing as a national activity. WSD is one of the four founding members of the IAGSDC. We have been very active in the association,and many of the officers over the years have been Westem Star Dancers. There are over 60 clubs throughout the US, Canada, Japan, and Denmark. Every year, the IAGSDC sponsorsa convention, where all clubs come together not only for square dancing, but also for educational, recreational and social activities, and of course, for lots of fun! Each Convention is hosted by a member club in a different city. Imagine over 1000 gay square dancers converging for 3 to 4 days of nonstop dancing, parties and lots of high energy. The gay square dance clubs also have a custom of hosting weekend Fly-ins, one club will plan a whole weekend of dancing activities and invite all the other gay square dancers to it. People fly in to the host city, and the hosting club members open their homes to the visitors, so as to reduce the cost of lodging.

into their squaredancing: Straightdancingis very couple-oriented.Most straightclubswon't evenallow students clubs,but couples always are classes exceptas "normal" man/woman couples.All the gay clubsare singles welcome. Most gay dancers leam to danceall positions,so genderis really irrelevant. You're taking a first stepright now by participating in theseclasses in of sponsored the Club. Membership WSD is opento anyoneregardless race,religion,ethnicbackground, by age,genderor sexualorientation who has successfully completeda Mainstreamclass. WSD is a do Mainstream/Plus club,but going on to takethe Plusclassis optional. Thoughmost members eventually Plus dancers, become only Mainstreamis requiredfor membership. for love this activity, and we can wax enthusiasticalt Ask us! But be prepared our answers--we join us! is on and on! The bestway to understand to give it a try. Please
