Hi-Timers Mascot

Welcome to Hi-Timers Square Dancing!

A typical Hi-Timers square dance
The Hi-Timers is a Modern Western Square Dance club that meets in Gahanna, Ohio, on the east side of Columbus. We dance at the Plus level, with a bit of DBD thrown in to make things interesting. Between tips we also offer round dancing. Casual attire is our norm.

We dance from 7:30 to 10:00 PM on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays of each month at the Gahanna Community Congregational Church, 470 Havens Corners Road, just east of Hamilton Road. We usually offer a half hour of early rounds, starting at 7:00 PM.

The Hi-Timers was founded in January, 2004, by Mark Clausing and Cindy Whitaker, both of Fairfield, Ohio. In January, 2018, Mark and Cindy retired as the Hi-Timers callers and turned the reigns over to Ed Laudenschlager, our current caller. Chuck Berry cues our rounds (typically phase II and III).

There is a $7/person entrance fee for each dance. There are no annual membership fees.

The Hi-Timers hold several special dances throughout the year. We participate in banner events and welcome banner steals and retrieves at our dances, but request you notify us beforehand so that we can be better hosts. (Sometimes, we've even been known to throw pizza parties for our guests!)

The Hi-Timers is a growing club. We welcome new members and friends. If our style of dancing interests you -- even if you don't feel you are a strong plus dancer -- please consider checking us out; we are always looking for dancers with a love of learning and an interest in improving their square dancing skills.
