Calling all dancers! We see a lot of dancers having fun on the dance floor at concerts and music events here at Robson Ranch, and would love to have you join in the fun at the RRDC dances! You don’t need to be a trained dancer to have a good time on the dance floor. There are so many benefits to dance—fun, exercise, better balance, friends, laughter, and music, to name a few. We encourage anyone who enjoys dancing and shaking it on the dance floor to join in the fun!

News about changes to the club: It’s official. The Robson Ranch Dance Club (RRDC) and the Robson Ranch Line Dance Club are now two separate clubs. RRDC was created by a handful of ballroom dancers who enjoy a variety of partner dance styles including ballroom, Latin, swing, country western, night club and disco, as well as freestyle (shake your booty with or without a partner). Line dancers wanted in on the fun and were welcomed to the club very shortly after the club was formed.

The original plan was to hold separate dance events for each group. In one of the very early general membership meetings, members voted to combine the dances to include both partner dancing and line dancing. The more the merrier! But the needs of the two groups are quite disparate, and the dance floor in the Hermosa Ballroom is quite small. The line dancers can barely fit their choreography on the floor to begin with. We never quite found the right mix and balance of music to fit both groups. Line dancers decided they wanted their own events, and formed their own club.

In December the dance club board unanimously agreed to break out these two groups into two separate clubs, so each group can have the type of dances and activities they prefer, and make their own arrangements for music and entertainment.

We wish the Line Dance Club a fabulous future doing their moves on the dance floor!
