Cowboy boots, belt buckles and a lot of country music is found every Wednesday night. The Western Swing Club at Snow College puts on a dance from 9:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.
The dance is held above Roy’s Pizza on Main Street. It cost $4 to get in, but for club members it’s $2.
Don’t be fooled—coming to the dance doesn’t mean attendees have to have taken the class or wear cowboy boots. Snow College sophomore, Mikaela Finlinson said, “It is fun and refreshing, and I didn’t even take the class.” Anyone is welcome to come and have a good time.
Don’t know the dance moves? There are many people there who are willing to teach others. Tyler Hammond, student at Snow College, thinks, “Even before I knew how to do the dances it was fun. I knew some girls who knew how to and would take me and teach me the line dances and a bunch of the moves.” People who try it learn soon enough.
Don’t have a partner? It isn’t all partner dancing; they have line dances every couple of songs. The rest of the time can be spent socializing with the large number of people there.
Western Swing is a good way to meet new people and have fun dancing. Not knowing the steps is no problem at this dance. Don’t be shy, come to a Western Swing dance.
