CASINO WILLI-WHIRLERS SQUARE DANCE CLUB



This Club was started in May 1983 in Casino NSW by Wilma Flannery when she was learning to call and she is still the Club Caller today after 32 years. Starting out with just a handful of dancers, including some young teens, the Club struggled to survive during the first twelve months. However, Wilma persevered, gained more experience as a caller, gained more dancers and the club began to grow till they were dancing between 3-4 squares each week. Visiting other clubs to dance with other dancers was very much encouraged by Wilma and many long friendships were formed during these early years, especially with the Glen Innes Club. Wilma and her dancers have never missed a Glen Squares birthday party since they started going there in 1984. The motto of Square Dancing is ”Fun and Friendship set to Music” and the members of the Casino Club really endorse this. The Casino Willi-Whirlers dancers always make everybody feel very welcome, whether you are someone just coming along to see what square dancing is all about or a visiting dancer or caller from another club. Although numbers of members have dwindled over the past 3-4 years, they are still enjoying dancing each Wednesday night with lots of fun and plenty of laughter. One of Wilma’s original dancers is still dancing with the Club today.

2018 - Casino Club will be celebrating 35 years of dancing on the 23rd & 24th June. We will have top caller, Brian Hotchkies, leading the fun and celebrations so it is guaranteed to be a great weekend. Put this date on your calendars now and come along and join us. We would also love to have any of our ex-dancers from the past 35 years come along and share in this special occasion.  A flyer with full details in on the "Flyers" page or just contact Wilma.
