The ClubHouse Dancers organized in March 1978 as a group of up to ten members who performed not just at the club but also at Mayor Barry's inaugural ball and at Constitution Hall with Sylvester. The ClubHouse Dancers also appeared at Odell's and the electric Circus in Baltimore. Though a few members of the troupe had formal training, the group was a disco dance team. Members at one point included Rainey Cheeks (team captain), Roger Hawkins, Karen Johnson, Denise Long, Howard Pettegrue, Tony Reilly, and Lisa Simmons. The troupe rehearsed twice a week at The ClubHouse.
