1. Promote Modern American Square Dance as a nationally recognized folk dance.
2. Preserve the cultural traditions of this patriotic, non-political and non-sectarian social activity.
3. Facilitate social contact and fellowship within the membership and affiliated organizations.
4. Encourage family participation in these fun activities.
5. Demonstrate and teach square dancing as a healthy, beneficial activity for our community.
6. Actively and positively contribute to our civic community.

Dances are, with some exceptions, on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Plus-level modern American square dancing and round dancing are featured.

The dance location is as indicated on Dance Schedule page.

Beginning at 6:45 PM is thirty minutes of cued round dance (choreographed ballroom dances). Round dance proficiency varies from easy to intermediate (mostly phases 2, 3, and 4).

Plus-level square dancing begins at 7:30 PM. Typically, square dance tips alternate with round dances until 9:45 PM.

An advanced tip (A-1 or A-2) is called during the evening's refreshment break. Another advanced tip is called as the evening's last dance.

Themes enhance the event since music selections may reflect the theme. Dancers also, at their option, may select their attire accordingly. Traditional square dance attire is always appropriate, regardless of theme.

Square dancing is an alcohol-free social recreation. Members of United Square Dancers of America pledge to abstain from alcoholic beverages before and during square dance events. This pledge is an integral feature of liability insurance available to associated square dance clubs.
