HOW WE STARTED

The Twirlers celebrated their 45th Anniversary in January 2019. The Twirlers began in 1974 primarily as a Square Dance Club for people who lived in Canyon Lake, California. We were fortunate that a caller, Joe Maness, lived in Canyon Lake. He started the Club and was an adviser for many years. In 1976 our club joined with Cow Counties Hoedown Association (CCHA) and our members now include many wonderful people from other cities.

Our first President was Les Roche elected in 1975. The membership in the beginning years was approximately twenty eight square dancers. Through the years we have benefited from many wonderful callers. Our first guest caller was Speedy Spivacke in September of 1976.

At one time we had dances on Friday nights, but in recent history we have changed our monthly Dance to a Sunday afternoon. This system has proven to be a good choice for us. We also use a Solo Board at our dances and classes. No one is ever left out of a Canyon Lake Dance.

Our classes begin in mid September and we look forward to graduating accomplished dancers each Spring.

The  Twirlers are known for their friendliness and good nature. We are a Club that loves to dance and we always remember that Square Dancing is for fun and fellowship.
