The Swinging Stars Square Dance Club is a mainstream club which was formed in 1962, even before RRVA was an entity!! Currently the club has 77 members and still growing. Our dances are held the 2nd & 4th Saturdays, September through April each year at 812 Travis, Wichita Falls, Texas (Square Dance Land) The club does not dance, but visits other clubs from May-August but do many other fun, square dance activities.

In Oct 2016 Tim Tanner and wife Lou were voted in as Club Caller & Taw after the retirement of Robert Walker out of Bowie, Texas, along with his talented and lovely Taw Pam, who led line dances between tips. They were Caller and Taw from 1987 to 2016. We were truly blessed to have such a talented duo!!!

The club begins the dance year with a Theme dance in September and continues on with a theme each month during our dance season. We have lesson’s every September so we can keep growing. We are the oldest and largest club in our district. We sell merchant cards with proceeds going to the club treasury which helps the Club keep dues down as low as possible.

Being a member of Swinging Stars means you always have a friend to call with good news or to share your sorrow. Our Square Dancers also love to "pound' our newlyweds with groceries and Honor our Golden Anniversary members with a wedding ring quilt. There is something for everyone. Our summer events include a cookout/potluck at the Walkers lovely ranch outside of Bowie, Texas, and a picnic at one of our couples house. Every month members gather at a local restaurant (location changes monthly) to celebrate the birthdays and anniversary and with 80 + it is always someone's birthday or anniversary.

Besides the square dancing which brought us all together, most importantly we have fellowship, love, and support of our fellow members to help us get through this life and for that we are all most thankful. Come join in the fun with the Swinging Stars!!!
