The Cottonwood Roadrunners Square & Round Dance Club has roots that trace back to the 1950's in the Verde Valley. The dancing began at the Methodist Church in Clarkdale. The club was called the Mistletoe Tappers back then and the caller was also the pastor of the church. During the 1950's, there were many square dance clubs in operation and many couples danced in Prescott, Flagstaff, Page, Camp Verde, Sedona and Phoenix. During this era, it was, also, common for people to attend dances in people's homes. Long-time square dancers may recall attending dances in people's kitchens and even bathrooms. Square Dancing was always a family affair and children attended dances with their parents. In 1960, the Mistletoe Tappers poured the slab by the gazebo at the Clarkdale Park. One of the club members who helped pour the slab noticed that the slab was sloped, so many times dancers would gravitate to the low end of the slab. In 1979, the name was changed to the Cottonwood Roadrunners. No matter what the name, we always welcome new and experienced dancers.
