     From the ciesk_of         JOHN & JOAN BERG, NNJSDA PRESIDENTS
                        As we turn over the reins to new Presidents, and this being
                    our last message as NNJSDA Presidents, we would like to
                    leave you with some of our thoughts on square dancing.
                    Please remember that these are our thoughts and not
                    necessarily those of the NNJSDA or any of its members.
    As wetravel the country attending festivals and conventions, or attending
meetings, or reading the some of the national publications, the one question that
is asked the most is, "What is happening to square dancing?" The answer to this
question is simple, "We are what's happening to square dancing." Let's think
about this for a moment. Each year we recruit fewer students; therefore, we
have fewer graduates. The clubs have fewer members. There are fewer
dancers to fill the many leadership positions in the clubs and clubs start to take a
lesser role in the "Wonderful World of Square Dancing." But most of all, because
we have fewer dancers, we will now have fewer students.
    Because of this trend, many articles are being written criticizing square
dancing. They criticize the length of lessons, the way we dress, the cost of halls,
callers, and subsequently the cost of dances. They also say that other forms of
dancing, such as w estern Hnnring, line Harming, etc has had an impact on
square dancing. These are EXCUSES, not reasons.
    WE the dancers are the main reason for the decline in the popularity of
square dancing. Square dancing has always been a numbers game. The higher
the number of students, the more graduates; the more graduates, the more club
members. The more club members, the more square dancing enthusiasts, and
so on. We're sure you have the picture by now. If all of square dancing's critics
would spend as much time showing the world the good side of square dancing
and less time criticizing it, we're sure that we can reverse the present trends.
                                                                  Please turn to page 4

    Presidents' Letter continued from page 3
        Let's take a moment to look at the EXCUSES. When we think back to our
    student days, it was a fun time. If we ever thought of stopping it was because we
    were having trouble learning, not because it was too long. However, our
    instructor had the patience of a saint. Those many angels who came each week
    in square dance clothes were an inspiration to us all_ We were made to feel that
    we had to graduate so we could "belong." That is just what we did and we have
    never regretted it. Some say we should relax our attitude on square dance
    clothes. Some even feel that we should abolish them. Just imagine the NY
    Giants showing up at the Meadowlands in jeans and sweatshirts to play football.
    Our critics say that square dance outfits cost too much. Then these same people
    will purchase western clothes, boots and a Stetson to line dance. It is not
    necessary to spend a fortune; a few simple outfits will suffice. However, if you
    want more, it should be available. It's like driving a Chevy or a BMW; after all
    they will both get you to your destination. Now let's look at the cost. It's your
    choice.
        You can rent a movie, buy a bottle of soda, a bag of potato chips or you can
    square dance, both for under $10.00. Would you rather be a couch potato or a
    smiling, fit square dancer? The choice is yours.
        As you can see, the decline is our fault. We are taking square dancing for
    gmntoci To many of       square dancing is a way of life. Not a day goes by that it
    doesn't touch on our lives. In some way, it is up to us to see that the rest of

    We've had a busy and eventful couple of months. We gave a demo at the
Menorah Nursing Home, where 95% of our audience were in wheelchairs. As we
left, the following Indian prayer came to my mind, "I complained about my shoes
until I saw others without feet." Don & Dot Coy were our callers on this visit of
mercy, and they got them to wave their arms and sing along. It made it all worth
while to invest the few hours we did to entertain them. We have another two
demos planned, one at the St. Francis Nursing Home and then we are back
again at the Menorah Home. We are also on the road again with three raids: the
first at Ocean Waves, the second at Tenafly Squares, and the last at Tenakill
Twirlers.
     Dot Coy became a grandmother for the first time. She doesn't look a day
older! The only thing that we have noticed is that she walks and dances about
two feet off the floor. With the first grandchild, you gotta expect that. The son of
our VPs, Sam & Minnie Santiago, was married this past month. They didn't lose
a son, they gained a tenant for the apartment that Sam refurbished. Lucky
people!
     We are ready for the Convention that our own Don & Dot Coy are the
Chairpersons. We are very proud of them. We are also getting ready for our
Graduation, and here again we are so grateful for Don & Dot for doing a great
job. We must have the most enthusiastic graduates in many years. They are

    As Presidents of your dub, how would you like to get a phone call at 3:00
P.M. in the afternoon that the hall you're dancing in that evening has a 48-degree
temperature? It seems that there was a heating problem earlier in the week, but
they thought it would be corrected by Friday. Evidently, it was not. It was too
late to cancel the dance, so three members brought lots of sweaters and
sweatshirts for dancers to wear. Fortunately, there was heat in an adjacent room
and the kitchen where we placed our refreshments, which were plentiful; so the
dancers had a warm place to go in between tips. After dancing 10 to 15 minutes,
many of us were comfortable without sweaters. By the end of the evening, the
temperature read 60 degrees. We want to thank everyone for their patience and
understanding. Our four squares had a super time thanks to Marion Pearce and
Russ Booz.
    We want to thank Hix & Chix for such a big group raiding our February 9
dance, which featured Al Kaesler and Dave Roberts (we had seven squares).
Also thanks to Valley Squares for their raid on February 23, where Dick Mazziotti
and Al Spinks were our caller and cuer (we had 5 squares). A great time was
had by all at both dances. We love raiding other clubs as much as we love being
raided.

    At press time, our students are eagerly awaiting graduation in April, when
they can get out and dance, dance, dance! And an eager group they are!
    Our series of student dances helped to reinforce Dick Mazziotti's teaching, as
did Dick & Laurie's IVl&Ms - if you don't know what this is, call the Mazziottis, or
ask any Belles & Beaux officer. M&M is a great idea - so it was probably Laurie's
suggestion. In any case, Dick did another great job with our class.
    And many, MANY thanks to the multitude of angels who came to class each
week as well as our student dances. This kind of support and encouragement is
what helped our new dancers all year long, and they will continue to need more
during the summer as they hone their newly acquired skills. I know it's
sometimes hard for those of us who have been dancing for a few years to
remember what it was like right after graduation, but we did still need
encouragement from the "old timers." So be sure to get out to those Mainstream
dances this summer and smile away! Next to eating, smiling should be what we
do best!
   Just remember: "square dancing is friendship set to music," so get out this
summer and show our newcomers just how friendly and welcoming we can be!
   This year we are starting our summer series in June at the air-conditioned
VFW Hall in Elmwood Park. Remember: we move to Tuesdays for June, July
and August. Have a wonderful summer.

   As we draw to the close of another season, we can reflect back upon a very
productive year under the able leadership of our Presidents, Susan Jurgensen &
David Wolin.
    We graduated 16 students in April and welcomed them into our club. They're
an exceptional group of outgoing individuals and will certainly make a positive
contribution to our dub in the months ahead. In fact, the Adlers and Firestones
have already agreed to share the responsibilities of Class Coordinators in the fall.
   Don't forget to mark the 4th Friday in May on your calendar, when we will hold
our 2nd Annual Chinese Auction. You may remember the valuable prize we had
last year, thanks to the great job by the Franchinos. Nancy & Bob have even
better surprises planned for this year, so don't miss it. In June, we will have our
annual Pot-Luck Supper with dishes that you will smack your lips on. Just sign
up to bring your favorite dish. Guaranteed you will not go home hungry. Mike &
Sally Schein have agreed to chair the supper again and are busy organizing the
menu. See what success will do; they're at it again.
    We hope to see you all at the Summer Dances and again in the fall on the 4th
Friday of every month. We will have our 3rd Annual Autumn Leaves Dance at
the Boy Scout facility in Alpine on the last Sunday in October. This dance should
prove to be even bigger and better than the last one, so make your plans early.

             The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity
                       is because it usually goes around
                    wearing overalls looking RP hard work.

be dancing again after our case of cabin fever.
    Valentine's Day was extra special for us, with Brian Fugere and Al Spinks.
There were kisses for all guests (chocolate ones, that is), a delicious selection of
pies (it was Pie Nite), and party games. Brian led us through his version of Spin
the Bottle, Post Office, and Musical Squares (instead of chairs). He even
supplied 3 CASH PRIZES for the lucky winners! All this fun and dancing too!
    As for our Carnivale, one word comes to mind: WOW! It was awesome!
Imagine Tim Marriner and 30 squares (you read it correctly - 30) of enthusiastic
dancers with many in festive costume. There were balloons, streamers,
refreshments galore, SPIRIT, FUN HOOTS, and CHEERS. What a party! This
was our second annual Carnivale. If you missed out on the fun, you'll have
another chance next year
    Just a little note: at our Carnivale and other dances we draw many single
dancers who mix and match during the evening. Louis and I keep an eye out and
make sure nobody is left out.
    We had a full house for our March 9 dance with Jim Snyder (just missing the
latest snowstorm by one day!). Jim's calling was up-beat and entertaining,
keeping us invigorated and smiling throughout the evening. This was followed by
fun and challenging dancing to the calling of John Kaltenthaler and Mark Franks.
They always have some tricks up their sleeves.
    We finished off our 43rd season with style. The talented Pete Diven (MD)
both called and cued for us on April 27th. We will again have the pleasure of
dancing to Pete' dynamic calling at next year's Carnivale. Will Larsen (CT) did
the honors at our Prom Nite on May 11th. Tuxedos, cocktail dresses, and gowns
were a smashing way to complete another successful season. Will will also help
us start off next season with a bang on the 4th Saturday in September, so mark
your calendars.
    And so, we say good-bye to another very enjoyable dance season. Don't
forget the Five Clubs Summer Dance at the First Presbyterian Church of Roselle,
which begins the 2nd Friday in June. Have a fun, relaxing, and healthy summer.
We look forward to seeing you over the summer, and in September at our
opening dance at the Stelton Community Center.

               Happiness is like a kiss - in order to get any good out it,
                       you have to give it to somebody else.
                     CROSS TRAIL SQUARES -- Caldwell, NJ                           PL
2 & 4 Wed. Sept-June                                     Lincoln School, Crane St.
    Cross Trail Squares successfully danced around the snowflakes and got itself
into high gear in 1996. We once again shared good times with our friends on Pie
Night (this year it was pizza). We were a caller's nightmare at our Valentine's
Day Dance with everybody seemingly in red and white. Fortunately, club caller
Bob Mitchell was, as always, up to the challenge. At our Presidents' Day Dance,
we were proud to host the Presidents of eight ether NNJSDA clubs for a square
dance with "executive privilege."
    We also held our 28th Annual Cross Trail Squares Dinner Dance in March
with 82 club members dancing to the calls and cues of Bill & Joan Wagner. It
was the 13th year that Bill & Joan led us in dance. Between the good dancing,
good food, and good friends, a wonderful time was had by all.
    The club once again sponsored a bus trip to Atlantic City with 46 would-be
high rollers. All our intrepid travelers enjoyed the action of the casinos, the jokes
of our club Presidents, and each other's company.
    Our raid schedule included a stop at Belles & Beaux where we were proud to
put 20 dancers on the floor including all of the club officers. (Contrary to rumors.
we did not hold a board meeting during the third tip.)
    Cross Trail Squares is also proud of members Sal & Mary Alessi, who have
been nominated as the next Presidents of the NNJSDA, and of Rich & Linda
O'Keefe, who have been nominated as the NNJSDA's 2nd Vice Presidents.

    I don't know who has a connection with the weatherman, but we have had
many snowy close calls, but so far have not had to cancel any dances. So
whoever you are, keep up the good work.
    Our Round Dance Special with Ron Rumble was well attended and plans are
in progress to continue this enjoyable affair for next year. Plus workshops are
currently in progress at the Chisholm School on Sunday nights with Dick
Lighthipe teaching. Thanks to all the angels who are helping out. It was
wonderful to have such a great turnout of club Presidents at our Presidents'
Dance. Fourteen President couples from other clubs joined us that night.
    Harmony Dancers paid the tuition for eight members to complete a CPR
course at Overlook Hospital. The following dancers are now certified in that skill:
Herb Rivkin, Diana Taylor, Jim Malcolm, Leo Eckmann, Corinne Eckmann, Roger
Remington, Jude Remington, and Wayne Schroeder, along with Jack Trainor and
Irene Spangler who had previously taken the training.
    We hope to see you dancing in the summer at the Five Clubs and Association
dances.

successful and energetic season of Plus dances. The club continues to offer a
high but supportive program of dancing. Attendance at dances has reached a

    Our third Tuesday dance in September will usher in new officers dedicated to
the same performance as our present officers, Bernie Beck and Fred Meyer.
    Flyers announcing a Plus class in October will soon be available. Seasoned
Mainstream dancers interested in all-position Plus lessons would do well to join

    As I write this, the sun is shining and the snow is melting. As you read this,
hopefully, the sun is shining and the grass is growing. Deja vu? Yes. I wrote
those same words last January and here in mid-March they are still appropriate.
    Hix & Chix had a Chinese Auction during our January 25th dance. Thanks
primarily to Gloria Wyman and Connie Huettmann for organizing it. We had a
great time, especially one couple (who shall remain anonymous) who cleaned up,
so to speak.
    Finally, our annual dinner-dance March 10th was a fun time for all. John K.
and Nick Raspa did the squares and rounds. Dancing in a "square" with two
couples in each head position, and one coupe in riormai side positions, made for
a really fun tip. And as always, the Paterson Brownstone's food, service, and
atmosphere were superior. Enjoy your summer dancing!

     It doesn't seem possible that the square dance season is coming to an end for
another year. I guess it's true that time flies when you are having a good time.
     Hunterdon Flutterwheels has really had a good year. We were able to finish
all our raids and to do several demos. PPg Dockry was able to get a lot of folks
on the floor to become new round dancers. They really had fun and loved it.
     We would like to thank all the officers we had this year. They really did a
good job. We would also like to thank all the clubs that came to raid us. And a
big thanks go to Peg Dockry and Wilson Hoff for calling and cueing our dances.
     We would like to give special thanks to all the dancers who visited us and to
all the Flutterwheels' members who came faithfully and supported us. Thank you
all. See you in a square.

1 & 3 Fri. Sept-June              Ironia Elem. Sch., Dover-Chester Rd., Rt. 513
   It's the Reelers' 35th Anniversary. We plan to celebrate at our dinner dance
on April 19 and to honor charter members, Betty & Dave Manning.
   Our class continues with eight students. Several of them have gone to
student dances in the company of our Presidents, Marion & Bill Grady, and have
enjoyed them greatly.
   We raided Lakeland Squares in February and are planning to raid Richmond
Dancers and Country Promenaders in April. It was a pleasure to welcome the
green and white throng of Garden State Campers on Pie Night in February.
   After boasting in the last issue that our dance schedule had escaped all the
snowstorms, we were snowed out on February 16.
   We mourn the passing of member Margaret Brownell, whom many of us
admired for her capacity to enjoy life in good times and bad.
   We hope this finds you as full of vigor and optimism as springtime itself.

    Happy to say our graduates are dancing weekly and enjoying it more all the
time. We had a class dance at B&B in Bethlehem, PA. Seventeen club
members went and had some happy times. We raided Lakeland Squares with
our students for a class dance. Again, more than two squares went. Everyone
enjoyed Bob Robinson's calling. We take a lot of pride in our students.
    We take the same pride in our caller and instructor Mickey McFarland. She
has a great gift for teaching with humor. We are fortunate indeed to have her.
Many, many thanks from our Mainstream and Plus class, Mickey. We enjoyed
having Q.T. too!
    We had over 100 dancers at our Luau Dinner Dance in March. Everything
about the day was memorable. Joe Fioretti and Marvin Northrup kept the
squares moving fast while Al & Gale Spinks worked their magic with rounds.
Heartfelt thanks to Donna Poyer and her committee.
    We'll close with a blessing. All our members are back and healthy as we go
to press. OK people, go Yellowrock your partner.

Conklin, who has been hospitalized over the past few months.

    After this past hard winter and then not dancing in January and February, we
really looked forward to our March Pie Dance. Our bakers outdid themselves
with pumpkin, pecan, apple, and types of lemon pies. Those pies that were not
consumed by the end of the evening were auctioned off by our infamous
auctioneer and President, Chuck Hatfield. Our caller, Dalt Young, getting into the
spirit of the evening, put on a baker's hat and apron. We can always count on
him to wear something appropriate. We were raided by Warren Wheelers who
performed their covered-wagon routine to everyone's delight.
    At our St. Paddy's Dance, the refreshment table had a definite Irish look from
the cream puffs with green-colored filling on down to the spearmint leaves candy.
As has become the custom, Charlotte Miller and Dottie Snyder were the
hostesses for this dance. Dalt wore his green derby and sang Danny Boy and
Wearing of the Green. Ed Miller cued a contra dance to a lively Irish tune and
got a good group up on the floor.
   Ending on a sad note, our sympathy goes out to our Treasurers, Alberta &
Bob Decker, for the loss of their son, Charles (Chip) Decker, through illness.

    Winter just keeps coming back to give us one more jolt; but, surely as you are
reading these lines, spring will have come. We deserve some warm weather
after the winter we have just come through. Members of our Advanced class are
dancing with us on a regular basis now, and we certainly welcome them to
Motiv8ors with warm enthusiasm.
    As the dance year winds down, it is most appropriate to express appreciation
to all the club members who shared the various responsibilities of making a
successful year. There are 27 individuals on the staff of Motiv8ors, several of
whom filled more than one role. We thank you very much for your contributions.
A special round of applause goes to Janet Eller and Conrad Yanis, our
Presidents for the past two years. Janet & Conrad are turning the gavel over to
Grace & Steve Weinstein for the coming year.
    We are continuing to meet occasionally at our alternative location in Clifton.
Our members and friends find this location easy to reach, roomy and comfortable
for dancing. It is especially convenient for people coming from the south or west.
Three upcoming dances arc scheduled at the alternative location in May and
June; however, events beyond our control may necessitate changes in these
arrangements. Please consult our latest flyers for the most current schedules. If
there are any questions, feel free to telephone Conrad & Janet at 201-470-8563
or other club officers for the correct information regarding the dance locations.
We don't want anyone to miss any of the fine callers we have slated for the
spring and summer. See you there in a square!

                             Square Dancers everywhere are interested in
                         exchanging ideas on promoting square dancing and
                         bringing new friends into the activity. The 1996 Promo-
                         Pak is a packet of promotional ideas offered by Legacy to
                         clubs and associations as a help in recruitment for their
next dance sessions. Traditionally, September was celebrated as Square Dance
Month in the U.S. In other countries, the time frame for beginning classes
differed. Now that many group are offering square dancing to the public at 10 or
12-week intervals, the Promo-Pak is useful on a year-round basis.
    The 1996 theme is: "On Line, In the Round and Square." The poster, which is
included in the packet and can be used for promotion, will reflect this theme, in
an effort to appeal to the computer interests of those we are inviting to join the
square dance activity. The Promo-Pak will be available for mailing on May 20.
                                                                Please turn to page 37

    Goodness, but that dance season passed quickly! Our last dance, with its
wonderful covered-dish supper, is upon us. Please plan to join us for our
traditional end-of-season bash the first Wednesday in June. Call the Hendersons
or the Nitzsches for reservations.
    We have one more A-1 Special on the 5th Wednesday in May. Check our
flyers and ad for details. Our January 30th Special was quite a success. In
addition to a large crowd, there was a surprise anniversary celebration for the
McCabes. The Groths provided a cake, and the HoeIles brought a beautiful
arrangement of flowers for the occasion. Congratulations, Isabelle & Doug, on
your 48th!
    Harry Henderson took quite a spill on an icy path and injured his ankle. We
certainly hope for a quick recovery. Harry & Dot are indomitable, though.
Regardless of the handicap, they arrive to prepare the coffee, etc., for the
refreshment table.
    We enjoyed our Valentine's Day raid to Cross Trail Squares very much.
Hearts and flowers filled the evening. Also, we raided Country Promenaders on
their Carnivals Night and delighted in Tim Marriner's excellent callina. Preceding
this dance, we gathered for a spaghetti dinner prepared and served by the
members of the Jazz Band of Middlesex High School. The McCabe's grandson
is a member of the band, and we were happy to support their event.
    We have a great deal of fun at our dances. Our Presidents, Hilda & Bill
Groth, see to it that everyone has a good time. They have led our group through
another successful season; and we are all very appreciative of their commitment.
Our club's support of John Kaltenthaler's Advanced class is indicative of the
Groth's abiding interest in square dancing and their desire to encourage dancers
in the Advanced program. Thanks from all of us, Bill & Hilda!
    We also express our gratitude to Joe Landi for coming such a long way to call
for us. His cheerful countenance and relaxed demeanor make for a happy
dance. Won't you come out and dance with us? All who dance the A-2 program
are most welcome. You have only learned A-1? Then watch for our occasional
A-1 Specials. See you soon!

 2 & 4 Sat. Sept-June                        All Saints Church, 2329 Victory Blvd.
      What a winter! Staten Island broke records for the snowiest and coldest
 winter ever. But that didn't deter Richmond Dancers to go off on successful raids
 to Y Squares, Ocean Waves, and Staten Square Set, under the very able
 leadership of Frank & Shirley Bellotti.
      Thanks are also in order for our Vice Presidents, who coordinate and present
 such wonderful refreshments at each dance. It's so good to have new dancers
 take part in our favorite activity and do it so graciously. Remember to line up
 prospective members for our next RIOS class - keep our dream alive.
      Did you know that Pete & Joan Yuskevich just had a new grandchild? That
 brings their current total to 13 - a baker's dozen. What Richmond Dancer
 President has been taken for Santa Claus? Clue, his initials are B.A.
      It was great to see the Dunlops back from yet another trip (this time down the
 Amazon). The Bichlers and Yuskeviches are back from Florida and the
 Branigans are back from Arizona. All looked well, tanned and ready to dance at
 our March 9 party.
      Congratulations to opera fans Marcia & Sandy Rubenstein on the 60th
 Anniversa ry of .Marcia's parents.
      Well we certainly welcome SPRING, hoping you are all well and looking
 forward to dancing with ALL including those who have not ventured out in the
 cold. We are off today on a Caribbean cruise, but we'll see you soon. God bless
 all.

1st Fri. Oct-June             Pearl River United Meth. Ch., John St. at Franklin
    The cold and the snow forced us to cancel our February dance, but our March
dance was exceptional. There were 14+ squares dancing to the challenging
calling of Mark Franks. We were raided by Western Wheelers, Circle Eights, and
the North Jersey Campers. As always, there was terrific round dancing cued by
Nick & Carole Raspa. Our raid to Hi Taws was a great success with over 30
RockyToppers in attendance.
    It's great to see Bob & Arlene Stams back on the dance floor again. John &
Joan Berg are stepping down as Presidents of the NNJSDA after three years.
We thank them for their dedication and hard work. We also congratulate them as
new grandparents.
    The A-2 class sponsored by Motiv8ors and taught by Roy Leber is making
excellent progress. There are two squares of students and several angels from
RockyTops. That's what square dancing is all about, passing on the fun and
helping others to become better dancers. Several RockyTop members have
signed up for C-1 classes. We wish them well.
    Please join us for an enjoyable night of square and round dancing. There's
always a warm reception, wonderful dancing to terrific regional callers and great
cueing by Nick & Carole Raspa, and always a large assortment of tempting
refreshments.
    Our Pearl River location is 20 minutes from the intersection of GSP and Rt. 80
Saddle Brook and 10 minutes from Exit 172 of the GSP.

PL - 3 Sat. Sept-June         Old Stone Ch. Ed. Ctr, 500 East Saddle River Rd.
    See Saw members and guests enjoyed dancing to the calling of Roy Leber at
our Chinese Auction night in January; Dan Koft at our Hawaiian Night in
February; and Randy Page at our Wearin' of the Green Dance in March. We
raided Hi Taw Twirlers, Hix & Chix, Western Wheelers, RockyTops, Tenakill
Twirlers, and Circle Eights. We were raided by many of the same clubs as well
as by Motiv8ors.
    Although most of our dances are now the Plus program, we're planning a
Mainstream special the first Saturday in June featuring the calling team of Gerry
& Chuck Hardy. That dance will also feature our annual resale of gently used
square dance clothing - a great opportunity for new dancers to build their square
dance wardrobes.
   See Saw Squares welcomes visitors, both couples and singles. We hope to
see you on the dance floor soon.

    Another square dance year is almost over and we've again been fortunate to
have had an excellent year due to our varied and capable callers and our
dedicated and friendly dancers.
    We have two classes this year. Our Wednesday class will graduate on June
3 and our Tuesday class will be ready this summer. Kudos to our hard-working
angels who have been so faithful and who have done wonders for us all. Several
of our lady angels are learning the man's part and some can already dance both
parts, so when you come to dance at Spinning Wheels, everyone usually has a
partner.
    This summer we will be having dances twice a month at Temple Emanuel on
Rt. 202 in Oakland, which is healthfully air-conditioned. Bob Robinson is our very
talented caller and will keep everyone on their toes.
    We hope to see you on one or every Monday evening. You'll be greeted
warmly and be happy you came.

    It seems as if the dance season is just getting underway and here we are get-
ting ready for spring and summer dances. WELCOME SWEET SPRINGTIME!
    Congratulations to Joe & Eleanor DiGiacomo. They celebrated their 50th
Wedding Anniversary on February 2nd. We wish the love birds many, many
more happy years.
    Peg & Dick Corney have been enlarging their clan this year. On March 9th,
daughter Debra was married, and they have also added 2 new grandsons
making a grand total of ten grandchildren with five of those under the age of one.
Our very best wishes to the bride and groom, babies and their parents, and
especially to Peggy & Dick.
    Get well wishes go out to Tony Franco, who is recovering from a heart attack
and to Tony Attanasio recovering from knee surgery. Jack Nevins is going in for
surgery on March 26th, so by the time this is being read, we hope all will be well
with him. Our best wishes for speedy recoveries to all of them.
    Welcome to all new graduates; it is our wish that you may be fruitful and
multiply. We hope to see you dancing real soon and have a great summer and
look around for people to bring into square dancing.

The Legacy goals for 1995-1997 are:
1. Promote communication between organizations and continue support of the
    Common Goals established at Summit meetings.
2. Encourage wide dancer input (not merely caller input) into the evaluation and
    selection of Mainstream call.
3. Encourage caller organizations to investigate the feasibility of establishing a
    square dance entrance program that can be mastered in less than 20 weeks.
4. Motivate and encourage square dance club leaders to hold strictly to the
    advertised programs.                                        Please turn to page 38

    A couple days before our February Sweetie Pie Night Dance, there were two
severe water main breaks in nearby Milford. The complicated detours made
Manny Amor late for the start of the dance. Every place he asked, nobody knew
where the church was! (And we think square dancing is the world's best-kept
secret!) After two rounds by Nick Raspa, Jim Broderick called a singer to fill time
until Manny arrived to complete the evening. Attendance was boosted by a
raiding party from Belles & Beaux. And everybody enjoyed the great selection of
homemade pies.
    In March Mother Nature did it again with a six-inch cover of white stuff, so we
had to cancel our student dance.
    We hope that you'll look for flyers for the Moonlight on the Hudson in June.
Recent graduates as well as experienced dancers are welcome to this annual
event, which takes place - rain or shine - in an outdoor pavilion overlooking the
Hudson River.

5. Encourage Mini-Legacy education seminars in every state, province, and
   country that has a square dance activity, and to establish education programs
   at all state, province, and federation square dance conventions.
6. Increase Levny membership in every state, province, and country that has
   square dance activity, work for a minimum of three trustees each, and strive
   to get Trustee or Affiliate membership from every facet of the square dance
   community.
7. Investigate the feasibility of promoting Legacy through the media.

    Our January dance, with Don Coy calling and Nick Raspa cueing, was well
attended in spite of forecasts for bad driving conditions after the dance. Men out-
numbered the women and Nick proved to be a versatile partner!
    In February, Mother Nature forced us to cancel what was to have been our
biggest dance of the year with Howard Richman calling and two clubs raiding.
How much more of this beautiful (?) snow can we take?
    For our St. Patrick's Dance it didn't snow; we had rain instead. Flooded roads
and accidents made our caller Don Coy a few minutes late. The evening was
saved by raiding parties from Hi Taw and Alle'Mo Squares led in procession by a
half-square of visitors from See Saw Squares.
    C"mon over and enjoy our dances. You're always welcome.

    Spring is here! Carl Hanks is due to return on March 21st. We've missed his
fine calling. The March 7th dance had to be cancelled because of bad weather,
but there should he no problem with our remaining six dances.
    April 20th is the 10th NJ Square & Round Dance Convention in Trenton. it's a
great opportunity to dance to many callers, shop to excess, and see impressive
dancing demonstrations. Hope you made it.
    Richard Stogniew has returned from his bypass surgery in fine form. Our
other ailing members are on the mend. Hope everybody is back in a square
soon.
    Over two squares raided Country Promenaders this month. We had a recent
raid on Bee Sharps, too. Come dance with us on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays. We
are a friendly club with good calling and good dancing. See you in a square.

   Sure and b'golly, the snow has melted! In spite of the weather, weather,
weather, we have enjoyed some real super theme dances, thanks to the
ingenuity of the Wymans and Terris, our special events coordinators. Terrific-Ts
resulted in a large variety of great T-shirts with which we decorated the entire
perimeter of our dance hall. Most beautiful, inniest;most risque, you name it,
you found it on a T.
   Eileen Leber, once again, brought her 1,000 lights to brighten up our festive
Mardi Gras. The Beckmanns (world travelers) had an endless assortment of
Mardi Gras decor and items to share with us, including lovely pins and assorted
beads worn by our executive board and, of course, Jerry's pizzelles were
absolutely delicious. Roy Leber complimented the atmosphere with his Dixie
Land Style coordinated calls.
   Silent Auction could have been called Pat Broderick night, as she needed
help carrying out her winnings. Remember that lucky number, Pat!
   During this summer, we strongly urge all to try to attend the NNJSDA Summer
Dances. Encourage new graduates; adopt a couple going back into square
dancing (we did); angel at a workshop; spread the news about upcoming classes
and workshops. We were all at one time in our square dance history looking for
assistance from experienced dancers. Let us dance together - let's keep
square dancing going and growing.

   Hi everyone! After a snowy winter and a cold spring, we are finally ready for
warm weather. This is a special time in the square dance season- Graduation.
Congratulations to all the graduates. We look forward to seeing you on the
dance floor at the Association dances this summer. Remember you will need to
keep your dancing skills fresh to be ready for club dancing in September. Square
dancing is a wonderful activity filled with good times and dear friends, enjoy.

                             by Rusty Ball                                        May, 1996

                    THE      One of my personal focuses when looking at an outfit is the
                             belt. I want to see it enhance the outfit, not be an
          SEWINC             afterthought or a distraction. It is getting harder and harder
         CIRCLE              to find just the "right" belt buckle these days, and in Threads
                             MagazineI found some information that led to making my
                             own buckles ("Custom Buttons that Shine", by Jeffrey
                             Mayer, Jan, 96.) Now, I am no jeweler, sculptor, nor artisan.
                             But if I can start with a hunk of plastic clay and end up with
                             a buckle that I am not embarrassed to wear, so can you.
    And it is so much fun--a whole new craft with millions of possibilities.

    it starts with the polymer compound ("clay") sold in craft stores under various names-
    Fimo, Friendly, Sculpey, Cernit, etc. These hake to hardness in 10-30 minutes in the
    oven. One 2oz. package makes at least 2 buckles, plus earrings, a pin, buttons, etc--
    and costs less than $2! Either pick a color to match the fabric, or make the buckle out
    of any color and then paint it. I used matching fabric paint on one, and rubbed
    another with metallic gold "stuff', sold in the same display as the clay. The article
    also describes gold leaf application.

ro    s   r.
         Th The basic design is also very flexible. The simplest was a 3" x 4" flat
             rectangular shape with a slit at each end (fig. 1) for the belt to loop
      Create
             through; I closed the ends of the belt with Velcro. I pressed and baked
      Design
             another onto the front of a bought buckle I always thought was ugly with
       Here
             a capital "ug"; I wanted to take advantage of the metal belt loops on the
             back.
                                                                                   Top Layer
     Figure 1   .




             For a third I bent 2 belt loops out of a                               Bottom Layer
             hanger (fig. 2); these were poked
through a bottom layer of clay, and covered with the                                Belt Loop
top layer, gently pressed together. Once it is baked,        f igure 7   BUCKLE END VIEW
the loops are quite firm.

Some information about this clay I learned by reading and experimenting:
* It is extremely light (earrings) and strong (belt buckles).
* It does not shrink or expand when baked. What you make is what you get.
* Layers stick together when pressed firmly--and the bond is permanent when baked.
* Except for some yellowing in the translucent clay, it retains its color perfectly--the
raw color is the baked color. Knead two colors together to make a new color.
* Roll it, mold it, make snakes or braids, use cookie cutters--get the kid in you
involved. Sculpey comes out of the package soft and pliable; Fimo is hard and
crumbly until it is kneaded.
* Sculpey bakes in 10-20 min./275", Fimo 20-30min./265°. Fimo gives a maximum
temperature warning, but I baked them both at 275° and couldn't tell the difference.
* Bake it on a smooth surface (disposable pie pan, etc); it will pick up a texture.
Position a piece carefully or it may distort; I propped some up with foil "pillows".
* It dries according to the thickness of the finished design-1/4" about 10 minutes, 1/2" -
3z," ahnut 20-30. Overbakinq darkens a piece in spots.
* Don't like the baked product? It can still be drilled, cut, sanded, painted, glued.

Let me know if I left anything out. Have fun!

                 Spring has sprung, summer has only just begun, the best of the
               dance season has yet to come. Weekends and festivals galore are
               ever in abundance to tempt your dancing palate. The Northern
New Jersey Square Dance Association hosts summer dances to reach out and
support both new and seasoned dancers. Support your Association and attend
all of the summer dances your schedule will allow, and at the same time reinforce
all the wonderful steps you have learned. An added bonus is the good fellowship
you will share and you will undoubtedly meet "new" friends. Be sure to visit the
various clubs presenting summer dances you can't help but enjoy. Check the
many flyers and the Grand Square ads and you will find that many of the
summer dances do have round dancing available. P.S. You are allowed to ask
the cuer to "do" the dances you know. Cuers enjoy dancers who dance, and will
do all they can to promote your dancing pleasure.
     We would once again encourage those dancers who, having enjoyed the New
Jersey Square & Round Dance Convention, might want to consider attending the
National Square Dance Convention in San Antonio, Texas this year. Attending
the Convention and concentrating on the Round Dance Program can only
enhance what is always great fun. Each day starts with the Showcase of
Rounds, where you are afforded a wonderful opportunity to see choreographers
exhibit their dances. The afternoon can be spent by attending a teach workshop
on the dances that you especially liked in the showcase. A syllabus is available
to help you inp following the program and to choose (that's the killer) which of the
many teaches you might want to attend. In between times, if you elect to skip
lunch and have a very late dinner, there are clinics that are held during those
times for the hearty. Of course, the many square and round dance friends you
see will understand as you whiz by with little or no time to stop to chat. They will
understand that contented smile you are wearing as you wave and promise to
visit with them real soon.

                                           by Dick Mazziotti, Caller/Teacher
    If Lloyd Shaw would have known what he was talking about, our activity
would be called "hand-to-hand" dancing, not square dancing. Unfortunately,
Mr. Shaw saw fit to concentrate on the music and traditions of square dancing
than in renaming it to teach people some 40-50 years later how to do it. Yes,
dear reader, it's time for the quadrennial admonishment about holding hands.
    Hands, hands, hands. The manipulators of violins and sledge hammers.
The abode of several hundred of the body's bones. You hand someone your
hand to shake hands and show you are handy.
    Have you ever noticed while square dancing that some good dancers
always seem to know where they are, and perhaps where you should be.
These people are blessed with "situational awareness," that is, knowing if they
are in a line, two-faced line, wave, diamond, etc., and whether they are centers
or ends, boys or girls. If you watch closely when you see one these dancers in
action, you will notice that while their hands never leave their arms, they are
constantly, consistently, every-chance-they-get touching hands with those
dancers next to them.
    This laying on of hands at every opportunity is the glue that keeps a square
together and dancing. Dancers who do not touch do not dance a lot. They tend
to get struck by the dreaded mill-arounds. If you would like to be one of those
really good dancers, touch hands at every opportunity.
    Having said that, there is a down side. Touching hands with other dancers
is good. Grasping hands with other dancers is bad. The hand contact, while
ever so necessary, requires a light but persistent touch. Some dancers appear
to be forever falling out of a lifeboat. Their grip leaves indentations in steel.
                                                                                                          Please turn to page 49

    Their hold continues long past the next two moves. One finds oneself
    desperately shaking them off in an attempt to keep dancing and avoid being
    forever joined at the wrist. The only protection I have been able to come up with
    against these bonecrushers is to never let them get a complete grasp. Just tap
    their hand and move on.
        As you make contact with more experienced dancers, you will find that a
    dosado is not necessarily a dosado, and circle to a line often bears no
    resemblance to a circle, as well as other fillips and embellishments dancers add
    to the calls. You were taught the correct way to do the calls. Most really good
    dancers are able to do the flourishes, but restrain themselves unless they are in
    a complete square with others willing to join them. The choice is yours.
        But if you don't want to do a "wrap-around" dosado, simply grasp your skirt
    or belt buckle in both hands, and do a regular back-to-back move. The "slap &
    slide" often replacing circle to a line is more difficult, but not impossible to avoid.
    Watch some of "Mazziotti's Raiders" as they insist on really circling to a line.
        And ladies, you paid enough money for those skirts, both long and short.
    The dancing looks and feels so much better when you use them to style your
    moves. The flowing grace of a well-handled skirt adds to everyone's enjoyment
    of the dance, including your own. And let's face it, in spite of the emphasis we
    tend to put on technical details, the whole idea is to have fun. See you on the
    dance floor.

1st Saturdays                           Pascack Reformed Church, Pascack Rd
    M&M's Basic Program has been enjoying some successes. We have been
dancing 8-9 squares at the Basic Program, Interesting Level, and have been
getting support from dancers from all programs. A group of C-1 dancers joined
us recently for some fun, especially during the hot hash halfway through the
evening. Please note, we will not be teaching a class. There are already many
clubs with classes. Support them and help them and get students to them. We
will continue to provide dancing at the Basic Program, Interesting Level.
    Our June dance has been cancelled in favor of See Saws, who are having a
Mainstream dance the same night. We are not in competition for dancers. For
this reason, for now, M&M's will remain a caller-run club. We do not want to
siphon off dancers who might be needed as officers in other clubs to be officers
at M&M.
    We would welcome raids by any club interested in dancing the Interesting
Level at the Basic Program. We in the process of deciding, with our dancers,
whether to continue to dance over the summer. Look for flyers (and let us know
if you think we should continue over the summer). Thank you to all the
Mainstream, Plus, A-1&2, and C program dancers who are supporting this effort.

     The Victory Dance, snowed out in January, has been rescheduled for
Sunday, May 26, 1996 from 3 to 6:00 P.M. at the Baltimore Convention Center,
Sharp Street entrance, Hall D. This is two blocks from the InnerHarbor_ Tickets
are $5.00 per person and dancing will be Mainstream with Plus tips and Phase II
& Ill rounds. We will have a Color Guard for the Authentic Christening of the
"The Baltimore 2000," the official "J Boat" of the 49th NSDC. All area callers and
cuers are invited to help us celebrate. For information call: Dick & Linda
Peterson, General Chairmen of the 49th NSDC, 301-345-7450; or Joe & Norva
Pope, Assistance General Chairmen, 410-255-0620.
     Introduction to the Executive Board directing our cruise toward the 49th
NSDC continues. Rolle & Marian Williams have been appointed Program
Chairmen. The Williams started dancing lessons in Oxon Hill, Prince George
County, Maryland. They retired to Bethany Beach, Delaware and have been as
busy as ever including participating on the committee that helped pass the Bill
that made square dancing the State Folk Dance for Maryland.
     The General Chairmen has selected the Committee Chairmen using the same
criteria: people who love square dancing and who have particular skills to fill
specific needs. Your skills and love for square dancing are needed to fill the
more than 3000 jobs that must be done to create a NSDC. Some tasks must be
completed early in the five-year period prior to the event; others don't start until
much closer to the Convention. Check with your local square dance organization
to find out how you can volunteer.
