C-Lions - a new Square Dance Club in southern Germany
After finishing an A 2-class with Uli Schingen at the Stuttgarter Rebläuse, he couldn`t continue with the programme although the group wanted to practice further on.
Additionally to the A2 firm offering of Maverick, twice each month (also in Stuttgart) we wanted to go for another option.
It was Wednesday that was comfortable for all, and fortunately we could win Dave Preskitt .
After working with great pleasure for more than one year, one of us had the splendid idea, to enhance to C 1.
As luck would have it an idealist out of our own ranks was found, who liked to dare it.
This dancer is one of the few, who dances this programme as well as all of the next following (including C4).
Yet he has also, in cooperation with Vic Ceder translated and dealt the C-Dance-Programme.
Not later than now it is clear who is meant, namely
Thomas Köder, as from Thursday May 5th 2011 our Clubcaller is called Thomas Borowski
His wish was an evening on probation. Konni and Harald kindly provided their electro acoustic systems. So the dawning of the C-age started in 2006, February 22nd.
The enthusiasm was really big and so C-1-class started in 2006, March 8th.
After a short while the wish arose to create a special club to be further on independent and regulated by public law.
So in 2006 April 5th the first challenge- Club in the area of Stuttgart was founded by 10 c-students and 6 angels.
It was generally agreed about the name „ C-Lions“, given by Thomas. Its the relatedness with Baden-Württemberg whose county-emblem shows 3 lions.
A dance floor was found in Ostfildern, near Stuttgart. This commune includes 5 parts. One of them is Kemnat.
Thomas is usually able to practice with two squares, because we have got 5 guests who join our circle and who are used to dance in C- programmes.
Since Dezember 2012 most of our members are dancing C2 and so we splited our danceprogramm in C1/C2.
