LEARNING/PRACTICE

OPPORTUNITIES

Other New Graduate Level Dance Opportunities:

If you are a graduate needing extra practice to help to prepare you for dances, or you are just a bit rusty, you may consider...

Look for alternating dances - Mainstream and Plus.

Saturday, November 9, in Carlsbad is one.  The Sandpipers are hosting a dance, alternating Mainstream and Plus.  This is a great way to gain confidence in your dancing abilities.  There will be friendly dancers there - including Wranglers - who will want to make your experience a positive one. Please, please, please, join us.  Their website has all the details: http://www.sandpiperssquaredanceclub.org/​

Attending Conferences

- Classes are held at all levels

Attending Class Workshops

- PSDA puts on class workshops at different times of the year. These classes take place in Vista and are taught by various callers. Hearing different callers helps because you may hear the calls in different order than your original class instructor.

Attend an ongoing class and help

- As a graduate you may volunteer to help at The Wranglers Class on Thursday nights for free.

- Contact other clubs in the area for their policies on helping in their classes.

Congratulations 
Graduates!

On Thursday, June 6, 2019, the Wranglers promoted 22 students who, with their memberships, are now eligible to attend dances anywhere in the county, state, country... and even internationally! The students were awarded their Wrangler bandanas, badges, and certificates, and, as usual, there was plenty of dancing and great food.

Thank you to our instructor, Buddy Weaver!
