Live Lively - Square Dance

Would you like to start square or round dancing in New Jersey? If you are already a dancer you can find a club by going to the web page of one of the associations listed on our home page. If you are new to square or round dancing you can view the list of clubs holding new dancer dances shown below and select an open house or an ABC dance near you. Dances at open houses and ABC dances are always taught so no square dance experience is necessary. To get a better idea of what square dancing is like today and some reasons to square dance please take a look at you2candance.com/.
