Kay's Square Dance Clubs
HISTORY
Uniting Squares Square Dance Club in Brisbane, Queensland Australia was established in 1986 and has been operating continuously ever since. The initial callers were Kay Walker and Brian Horsey, Kay has been the sole caller for over twenty years. Uniting Squares moved from Kenmore (after 25 years) to Oxley on the 29th September 2010.
In June 2017 club's profile changed due to poor attendance of Mainstream and Plus dancers. Interest in A-Level dancing prompted Kay to continue Uniting Squares as a A-Level club.
Kay's Plus. In December 2007 Kay held a Sunday afternoon Plus Dance at Oxley, in Brisbane. In February 2008 Kay commenced a regular dance and in August 2008 the dancers selected a name for the new club, Kay's Plus. In April 2009 the club moved to a larger hall for the membership had more than doubled by early 2009.
The January 2011 floods forced the Club to move to a temporary venue at Yeronga for a few months.
Uniting Squares Day Started in May 2013 at Chelmer then moved to Graceville the following month. The emphasis of this club is fun, exercise and socializing along with extended dancing.
Town and Country Squares In 2015 Kay was approached by Noel McKenzie, the then caller for Town and Country Squares, to call for the club starting in 2016 for Noel was retiring from calling. The club dances twice a week in different locations in Ipswich.
