History of the Paddle Steamer Square Dance Group Inc.
Zaree Sullivan opened the club in 2008 with the help of Ken Overton. Milton McKenzie took over as caller in 2009 and the hall at Currency Creek was hired.
The club moved to Port Elliot in 2011 and was incorporated in 2012. From then the club was run as a CD club, including teaching new members. In 2013 Les Tulloch became our caller fortnightly with other callers filling in. We purchased sound equipment in 2013 with the help of a council grant and many fundraisers. In 2015 we graduated our first learners.
We now dance at Carrickalinga House, Victor Harbor, on a Friday night from 7pm. We have participated in a number of public events and held a flash mob at the local Bunnings which drew a large crowd. We welcome dancers from interstate and overseas. Monthly theme nights are held along with the occasional social event.
We have just enjoyed our 15th birthday with generally 4 sets dancing and many other dancers from various clubs catching up with each other. Malcolm Doyle entertained us with country music on his guitar and Norma Webb finally graduated after many interruptions (covid and illnesses) to mainstream level.
We would love to welcome you to our friendly club.
