Welcome to the new Queens & Jacks Square Dance Club website. We hope that you will find the information on our site to be interesting and entertaining. Of course, it won't be as interesting or as entertaining as actually square dancing, but with all restrictions around Covid-19, we can only try to remain positive, to carry on and to stay connected through the internet and safe gatherings.
I think one thing that many of us can agree on is that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Covid-19 has certainly forced many of us to learn more about the internet and taught many of us the benefits of using the internet and Zoom. It's a learning process no matter what your age and it's been very useful in keeping our Members connected. That's a good thing! To stay connected check out the Current Events page for upcoming events.
For those visiting our site for the first time, have a look around. We've tried to include all the details you need to know about our Club and how to register. We're hopeful that the restrictions will be lifted soon and we can resume living life! We've also updated our site to include some fun pictures from past events so we don't forget! We hope you enjoy.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our Club is not currently offering regular seasonal lessons or dances. However, we encourage Club Members and any New Dancers to regularly access our Current Events page for details of any upcoming events.
While we are stuck at home and trying to find new things to keep ourselves occupied, Club Members worked together to redesign the above icon.
Anyone who wishes to promote our Club, can save and share the above Queens & Jacks icon. The link to our website is embedded in the icon, and it should save along with the picture, but just in case, the url is: www.queensandjacks.com
So share away!!! The more times people see this Logo / Icon the more times they'll think about Square Dancing. Who knows... perhaps by the time Covid-19 restrictions are lifted we may have a whole new generation of interested New Dancers.
Until we can meet again and to help you stay active in your home, we recommend searching YouTube for square dancing videos. There are lessons and all kinds of neat things to see on YouTube!
