Trillium Awards

We recognize meritorious contributions to the dance community with two unique awards

Trillium Merit Award, 2020

Don & Jean Clingin

Don & Jean started Square Dancing with the Grenville Gremlins in 1998. As time went on, they thought they would give Round Dancing a try. Their abilities & skills improved to the point where they started their own Round Dance Club (Take A Step Rounds) in 2003. At one point Jean was cueing 3-nights per week, helping out at other clubs, all while maintaining a regular working career. Don & Jean were always there to help other dancers; they even had teaching sessions at their home to accommodate small interested groups. They have travelled for dancing, and have assisted at many National Conventions. They are members of Roundalab, have been members of the EOSARDA Board of directors, and the Seaway Valley Square & Round Dance Association.  They retired from cueing and instruction in April, 2019, but continue to dance regularly. They are a most deserving couple.
