Welcome to the Queens & Jacks website. We hope you find the information on our site to be interesting and entertaining.
Our new dancer programme is going well! Seventeen new dancers began the programme on March 21st and we are getting three squares of new dancers and Square Angels out on Monday nights. One night we had enough for five squares! So far we have covered Basic One of the Mainstream programme and are embarking on Basic Two. We will end the programme with a Dance Party on Monday, June 27th.
Our next Mainstream dance will be on Friday, May 13th, and it will be our annual Loonies & Toonies Charity Dance. All donations collected at the dance will be forwarded to the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Moyra Martin from the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation will come and talk a bit about the work they do in Calgary and Alberta.
Then we will be “dancing ‘til summer”! We will have Mainstream dances on May 27th, June 10th, and June 24th. These dances will be preceded by Round dance instruction at 7:30 pm.
We follow AHS guidelines - the wearing of a mask will be a personal decision; hand sanitizer stations will be available. If you are feeling unwell please stay home.

To help you stay active in your home, we recommend searching YouTube for square dancing videos. There are lessons and all kinds of neat things to see on YouTube!
While we were stuck at home and trying to find new things to keep ourselves occupied, Club Members worked together to redesign our logo icon.
Anyone who wishes to promote our Club, can save and share the above Queens & Jacks icon. The link to our website is embedded in the icon, and it should save along with the picture, but just in case, the url is: www.queensandjacks.com
So share away!!! The more times people see this Logo / Icon the more times they'll think about Square Dancing. Who knows... perhaps by the time Covid-19 restrictions are lifted we may have a whole new generation of interested New Dancers.
