Trailblazers is the youngest of our local Clubs, being formed in 1993 by Malcolm Mace who had been calling Country dancing for many years. Corinium Squares helped with the final phases of teaching through the Mainstream programme, and the club’s first graduation was held jointly with Swinging Squares at Cheltenham. Malcolm is still the club’s regular caller, and they meet on Tuesday evening in Melksham.
There are several other square dance clubs in the area.
