The purpose of this non-profit association is to encourage, perpetuate and standardize the art of Western-style Square & Round Dancing through organized clubs whose members promote good will, fun and fellowship among Square & Round dancers.
The Council is a banding together of individual Square & Round Dance Clubs for the mutual advantage of all. As an organization, it is not its intention to interfere in the internal affairs of its member clubs. The Council will offer the combined experience and knowledge of its personnel to assist individual clubs in solving problems when these same clubs ask for help or assistance. Each member club is expected to contribute to the effectiveness of the Council of Square & Round Dancers, which is governed by and for Square & Round Dancers.
Membership of the Council consists of organized Square/Round Dance Clubs within Area III and V and fringe areas of the State Association, or charter members, desiring to participate in the functions of the organization. For the geographical area covered by Areas III and V of the State Association, please visit the State Association's web site at www.tnsquaredance.org. Membership of a club will be approved or disapproved by the Board of Directors upon written application by the club.
Our member clubs dance almost every day of the week except Sunday. Check out the Square Dance Schedule page or the Round Dance Schedule page to find a club that meets at a time and place that is convenient for you. We also offer classes at some locations, check our Classes page for more information and scheduling regarding these opportunities. For upcoming special events, check our Events page. It will be updated frequently as new events are added.
The minutes of our last meeting can be found here.The last available treasurer's report can be here.
Most of our clubs celebrate their anniversaries with dances on their scheduled dance weekend. You can see a listing of club anniversaries here.
