Scootbacks Christmas Party Thanks
Many thanks to those who helped make our annual party a success. First, Gene and June Joerns ably assisted by Barbara Leggate and Marie Rupsa, the planners extraordinaire. Our setup crew was Lynette and Sherman Sipe, Fred and Betty Sinn, and Joan Potterfield and Marie Rupsa. Sue Bell cooked the turkeys and Marie cooked the ham. Brenda and Steve Soucie helped cleanup along with Bill VanderMinden. In fact, just about everyone helped clean the place up. Bob Davee was our irrepressible MC, and everyone brought wonderful food to make the dining truly gourmet. Randy the piano player was a wonderful touch, many thanks to Marie for arranging his playing.

Did you know that square dancing is the official folk dance of Colorado?  Did you know that square dancers dance to a variety of music, including, but not limited to, Big Band, Classical, Rock and Roll, Disco, 50’s, and Country music?  If you answered no, you just learned something new about square dancing.  

Scootbacks is a mainstream and plus modern square dance and round dance club. We normally dance on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from September through April. On 5th Fridays, we have an all plus dance. This season we continue our dancing until May 11th, 2018.

We begin each evening with pre-rounds at 7:30 PM (7:15 when Becky, Dave. Justin or John cue). Our square dance program begins at 8 PM, with one round dance between each square dance tip. Usually, the third tip is plus. Please see the calendar below for a schedule of our dances.

Our dances are held at the Broomfield United Methodist Church, located at 545 West 10th Ave., Broomfield, CO 80020. We dance in the church’s Family Life Center, which is accessible from the northeast side of the parking lot. Refreshments are always provided along with coffee and lots of cool water.

Singles, couples, families, and youth are always welcome at our dances.
