National Square Dance Convention®

Home of the World's Largest Square Dance Event



President's Corner


The 65th National Convention in Des Moines provided dancers from around the country and foreign a few foreign countries with many enjoyable hours of dancing, entertainment, and education. We appreciate, as always, the dedicated work of the 65th NSDC dancer-volunteers who delivered a great convention.


The NEC will be focused on promoting and encouraging square dancing and related dancing activities as well as educational and leadership activities as we prepare for future conventions. In March we will be in Kansas City Mo to learn of 67th NSDC’s plans for the Convention in June of 2018.

Looking ahead the 66th NSDC board will be putting the final touches on the 66th NSDC in June of 2017. We look forward to returning to Cincinnati (the convention was held in Cincinnati in 1992). Register now for the 66th NSDC June 21-24, 2017. Check out their Web site for more information and registration information and register for the convention and check out their tours.

Farther into the future, the awarded conventions are:


The 67th NSDC June 27-30, 2018 in Kansas City, MO
The 68th NSC C June 24-29, 2019 in Atlanta, GA
The 69th NSDC June 17-21, 2020 in Spokane, WA


We are investigating future cities that will encourage dancers to come to the National Square Dance Convention® and enjoy square dancing, round dancing and other dance activities as well as opportunities to learn more about all folk dance forms and support activities.

We are all recruiters for more dancers for “The World’s Greatest Square Dance Event” encourage lessons in your area and promote the Convention with all dancers.
