Location: Orange County, CA, USA. There were also clubs in Palm Springs and Long Beach

Started: 1982. The groups were caller-run and continued until Happy's health deteriorated to the point where it was too much for him. Folded 1987

History: (Written by Dave in 1985): Dave "Happy" New Year, Caller, started teaching a square dance class in Palm Springs in 1982, at the Sundance Saloon. He formed a group called the Newyear's Sundancers, which grew to 42 dancers. Then he started teaching a class in Orange County and Long Beach called the New Year's Resolutions, which grew to 64 dancers. All groups dance Mainstream (w/some Plus) at each other's locations. The Orange County group has two squares of gay women, which I believe is more women than any other group in the country. We're still the only square dance groups in Southern California that dances Callerlab, so come dance with us.
