The National Square Dance Convention ®  (NSDC) is an annual event occurring in late June. The convention location is moved each year from city to city, based on a bidding process. Bids are presented at the annual convention and typically awarded for four years in the future.
All members of the local convention committee are volunteers who donate their time, energy, and expertise to produce the “World’s Greatest Square Dance Event” each year.
The convention presents an extensive Education Program, including Education Sessions, demonstrations and workshops. The convention includes all phases of dancing, exhibitions, future convention bid sessions, special events and shopping opportunities. Most of all, the convention provides fun and fellowship with dancers and Dance Leaders from around the world. Many of the world’s most elite Dance Leaders include the NSDC in their busy schedule each year. The convention is a one-of-a-kind event that has been held annually since its inception in 1952.
