Page | 2022 ByLaws
The Perky Promenaders, named for the
Perkiomen Creek, was formed in July 1963.
We danced in the Church on the Mall
in the Plymouth Meeting Mall for many years, until 2005, when
we moved to The Reformed Church of
the Ascension in Jeffersonville.
In 2008, we added level-of-the-floor
dancing on Saturday nights in Harleysville, and new-dancer dancing on Monday
nights. In 2020, we moved our Wednesday dances to Harleysville. And in 2022, we moved Wednesday dances to Friday, also in Harleysville.
We dance the Plus Program with Rounds
(2x2) on 1st and 3rd Friday nights, with either pre-rounds
or DBD for the half-hour preceeding our dances.
We dance Level-of-the-Floor on 1st
and 3rd Saturday nights, with either a caller's workshop or pre-rounds the first
half hour of every dance, and rounds for every dance.
Class members are welcome to attend.
We have new-dancer dances and classes
every Monday night.
