Square 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. Square 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 Modern Square Dancing?

Eight people interact through a series of movements as “called” by the caller. Unlike square dancing of old where dancers followed a set pattern, there is more variety in modern square dancing.  There are still elements of older square dancing (as 8 people, paired up, form a square).
