In July of 1959, a steering committee met to form what would soon become the Stardusters Dance Club of today. The first Stardusters dance was held October 3, 1959 at the Athletic Club with Howard Mauger’s Orchestra, a popular local orchestra at the time. Live dance bands originally played for all the dances, and for many years, there were only 4 dances a season. Dances were held for many years at the Ohio State University Golf Club with no dinner served – just a cash bar and appetizers.
In 1996-97, Stardusters moved to its current home at the Clintonville Women’s Club. In the early 2000s, Stardusters began using a DJ for some dances, with Ron Clark as the first Stardusters DJ.
