The mission or goal of our association is to better Square, Round and Line dancing in the greater Charlotte, NC area.  Our member dance clubs are located between Dallas (west), Salisbury (north), Indian Trail (east) and Rock Hill SC (south).

Square Dancing

Square Dancing is a social activity where eight people form a square with 2 people on each side, then dance a series of movements as "called" by the square dance caller. It is a healthy, recreational, fun activity. It is often said that square dancing is "Friendship Set to Music". Dancing is done to modern music, 50's and 60's to 80's and 90's or later - whether country or rock and roll - the dances are FUN and HEALTHY way to enjoy a night out with your friends and family.

Round Dancing

Round dancing is best described as choreographed ballroom dancing for couples. It is a social, non-competitive activity, for fun rather than competition. On the dance floor, choreography is directed verbally by a round dance cuer, enabling all couples on the floor to dance the same steps at the same time. Round dance has many choreographed sequences of steps that are borrowed from or can be transferred directly to normal ballroom dancing. Dance for the fun of it! If you make a mistake the round dance police will not get you.

Line Dancing

A line dance is choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows without regard for the gender of the individuals, all facing the same direction, and executing the steps at the same time. Line dancers are not in physical contact with each other.

Square, Round and Line dancing are fun, improve your mind, body and soul, providing a healthy, happy, night out with friends.  Come out and join us real soon!
