History of Angier Twirlers
The Angier Twirlers
Square Dance Club
The Angier Twirlers
Square Dance Club began dancing in 1985. Charter
Caller, Monk Moore, three regular dancers, and six students,
along with some help from a couple from the Dixie Twirlers
Square Dance Club in Garner, began dancing as the Angier
Twirlers and continue going strong to this day!
Monk and his wife, Ann, wanted to start
a square dance club in Angier, N.C. upon his return to North
Carolina when he retired from the United States Air Force
(retiring as a Master Sgt). The end result of their hard
work is a strong, active group of dedicated square dancers - The
Not long after the club began it was
forced to move to a smaller location due to difficulties in
meeting expenses. Monk continued to call, sometimes free
of charge and at times even paying the hall rent himself.
Nevertheless the club continued to move forward and has
graduated a class of new dancers each year.
The Angier Twirlers have performed
numerous exhibitions for nursing homes from Fuquay-Varina,
Angier, Smithfield, and Dunn. In addition, members
have danced at the Angier Crepe Myrtle Festival providing
entertainment for more than 10,000 festival goers. The
club has performed at Benson's Mule Days, Coat's Farmer's Day,
Erwin's' Denim Days, Lillington Rurtan Club, and VBS Western
Round up for the Angier Baptist Church.
Monk Moore is a NC Square Dance Hall Of Fame
recipient (awarded in 2012). He is also a Certified Callerlab
"J" Morgan joined the club as a club caller in
