We are The Tanglefooters

NOTE: For updated Club News, click on the News link on the right navigation bar.   


The annual Tanglefooters club summer dinner/dance/meeting is coming up this Monday night, July 14, starting at 6:30 PM with the dinner, at the Joplin Square Dance Center, 1801 W. 2nd. 

It doesn't matter if you are a former club member or a present club member, former student or present student, come one, come all for the dinner & stay for the meeting (where present members vote on proposals), and the dance to follow. No lesson will be given, and no fees collected for this dance. However, those attending are asked to bring a salad, dessert, or if you wish--only if you wish--light summer fare, like sandwiches. Drinks will be provided. 

Looking forward to seeing you there on Monday night at 6:30,

Dale Simpson
For the Officers

This is the blog and new website of the Tanglefooters (Round) Dance Club of Joplin, Missouri.

The Tanglefooters Round Dance Club was formed in November of 1975 and has been in continuous existence since then. Until the great Joplin EF-5 tornado of May 2011 we met at the Joplin Senior Center, which was damaged by the tornado. We then moved over to Joplin Square Dance Center, 1801 W. 2nd Street, Joplin, two blocks west of Maiden Lane. We liked it much better than the Senior Center, so we decided to stay.

Our Mission

The mission of the Tanglefooters Dance Club is to teach, promote, and perpetuate choreographed ballroom dancing as a wholesome, enjoyable recreational activity of the highest standard for the whole family. We are a Phase II-IV intermediate-level club (dancing a few easy V’s), committed to teaching beginners and developing competent round dancers.  

When We Meet

Beginner lessons: 6:45 – 8:10, Monday nights, September – July of the following year
Member dances & lessons: 8:15 - 10:00, Monday nights throughout the year
Dancing Phase levels II-IV, plus a few "soft" V's
Cuers / Teachers: Paul & Linda Robinson

 Where We Meet
