The Fun & Frolic Square Dance Club was one of the first square dance clubs in Jacksonville.  It was established in 1956 as a "Mainstream" club, under the direction of Jack Griffith.  Several of the club members volunteered to help the City of Jacksonville to finish building a facility, which they could use to dance in.  This building today is known as the Woodstock Recreation Center.  They have participated in Square Dance promotions at the Greater Jacksonville Fair, a  live broadcast from the "Today in Jacksonville" and a host of other promotional demonstrations.   On March 1981, they celebrated their Silver Anniversary.

In 1983, Art Wilson took over the Fun & Frolic square Dance Club and transformed it into the present day A1 and A2 club.  Today the club still maintains its open and friendly attitude where all A1 and A2 square dancers are WELCOME.

We are now dancing for two hours on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 6:45 to 8:45.   We presently dance under Jim Cosman.
