El Camino Reelers: Square Dancing in Silicon Valley for the LGBTQ Community and friends

Vicki Woods

We are sorry to learn that caller Vicki Woods passed away on July 16 after a long illness. Vicki was ECR's very first caller back in the 1980s, and called occasionally for ECR in later years. She also called for Cypress Squares, Musical Squares, Bows and Beaus, and Swinging 21'ers. She was a friend to the Reelers and will be greatly missed. We will let you know more information about a memorial as it becomes available.

June 26: Reelers Renaissance

On Saturday June 26, Reelers and friends went back to Robles Park in Palo Alto for our first in-person dancing since the beginning of pandemic. Four callers (Michael Levy, Mike Pogue, Kurt Gollhardt and Dave Decot) kept the music going. Smiles all around!

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, and Advanced programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would love to welcome you to our club. Come to one of our monthly no experience required Fun Nights, or send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
