Club Insurance

Clubs may feel that ''their caller insurance'' protects thembut, according to Callerlab and the American Callers Association, it protects them ''only if a caller causes injury''. Your club is at risk of a massive lawsuit if something happens at a dance, without insurance. However, Dance Clubs may receive economical dancer insurance (per dancer) through the United Square Dancers of  America, by contacting the ASSDF's Insurance Advisor, Sheila Gesing, at (870) 942-2273. For further details on the USDA Insurance, and ASSDF Club Dues, click here.
