Rendezvous in the Rockies

Seven students of the Wild West Squares attended the Rendezvous in the Rockies dance in Castle Rock last weekend with the live square-dance band Ghost Riders. Also attending were over 35 squares of fine dancers from multiple states including Alaska.

The five-piece band was fantastic, showing that live music has an important place in the square dance world.
