There are a few ways to get started:

  -  There is always a friendly face waiting to show you the steps at your local square dancing venue! There are dozens of places around the state that dance, check out our list of clubs below.


  -  There are videos online to watch and to practice alongside of while you're learning! A few of our members recommended the "Video Square Dancing Online" when they first started.

  -  Taminations is an app/online tool that shows hundreds of different calls in each style (Basic, Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and Challenge)


Square Dance

A lively dance in which sets of four couples are arranged in a series of squares and prompted through various steps and movements by a caller.



Each local club looking for new members. It doesn't matter how long you've been dancing or how young you are! If you are interested in joining, please go to the clubs page to find out which region you are in!



Clubs can become members of the ASSDF, and any dancer can become a member of a club!
