Any member club can host the fall, winter or spring Federation Dance. Many clubs have been hesitant to host because of the worry that it could be a money losing proposition. The Federation will ensure that a financial loss doesn't occur.

If your club is interested in hosting, please contact Roger Routh for more details.

2020 NC State Convention has been cancelled!

The convention committee recently voted to cancel this year's state convention.


Here's a link to the message about the decision and convention status.

The 31st NC State Convention has been rescheduled for August 20-21, 2021  with the hope that square dancers will be able to safely dance again by that time.
