The Square and Round Dancers of South Western Ontario

We are a non-profit association representing square and round dancing clubs across South Western Ontario. Round dancing is considered not only fun and good exercise but also a social event.  We like to call it “friendship set to music.”

What is Round Dancing?

Brian Elmer of the Dance Connection (squaredance.bc.ca) refers to round dancing as “choreographed ballroom dancing for couples.” Dancers progress as couples counter-clockwise in large circles across the dance floor, with the dancers being directed by a round dance cuer.  This enables the couples on the floor to perform the same dance moves simultaneously.
