HERE THEY ARE IN FULL COLOR AND DRESS!

...the world of antique tractor square dancing!
- Formed in 2005 as a unique and separate entertainment and educational team within the Middlecreek Valley Antique Association, the Middle Creek Tractor Swingers perform a variety of traditional square dance routines using eight antique tractors as the dancers.
- All tractors meet AARP age qualifications - being 50 or more years old! Tractor operators are appropriately (debatable) dressed for their roles as men or women partners. The smaller tractors sport flower bouquets and traditional ladies' names to match their roles as women dance partners. The larger tractors have mens' names and drivers with typical? farmer style outfits. Watch for the odd couple "Ollie" & "Alice" and the perfidious "Lady in Pink" who's always looking for new partners.
- The usual performance with 4 to 5 square dance routines takes about 1/2 hour although future shows may be extended as new dance routines are developed and added.
- Performances are designed to be highly entertaining while showcasing the nimble maneuvering characteristics of the now largely extinct tricycle configured farm tractors.
- The team performs at weekend fairs and antique farm equipment meets in the Central Susquehanna River Valley from April through October.
- Practice sessions for members are usually on Sunday afternoons beginning at 2 PM. New members are welcomed and receive training in special driving techniques and dance routines during practice sessions.

It is with regret that the Middle Creek Tractor Swingers announce a much reduced schedule of performances for 2015.  We have been unable to maintain an adequate cadre of drivers necessary to fill a full schedule of performances.  We will still do performances at the 2015 Pa. Farm Show and at our home site in Snyder County.  We will begin our 2015 season tractor practices on Sundays at 2 PM late in March.  New drivers are encouraged to join our group.  No square dance experience is required, although square dance experience speeds up the learning time.  Practices are held at the Middlecreek Valley Antique Ass'n on our practice field.  Ownership of a tractor is not required as a full complement of tractors are available for all practices.  For more information about the Middlecreek Valley Antique Ass'n and directions to the practice field click on www.mvaapa.org/
