Round Dancing


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 ( 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.
