• Welcome to The Denver Area Square & Round Dance Council

    The DAS&RDC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of delighting MIND, BODY & SOUL through Square and Round Dancing in the metro Denver area as well as the surrounding Front Range region.

    Square & Round Dancing is the fun way to keep MIND & BODY the best they can be. Learning the calls/cues keeps your brain stimulated. Dancing keeps your body moving, and the social interactions keeps your SOUL satisfied.

    Square Dancing requires no fancy footwork, provides movement motivation and the social interactions create a basis for lifelong friendships. Casual dress and comfortable foot wear is all that is needed. Round Dancing is similar to ballroom dancing except that the couples are taught/prompted through the moves by a Round Dance Cuer just as Square Dancing is taught/prompted by a Square Dance Caller. Singles, couples and families are encouraged to become involved in our activity.

    We truly hope you will come out to one of our many events to experience for yourself the fun and friendships that many of your neighbors already enjoy.

At the January meeting of the Colorado State Square Dance Association (CSSDA), hosted by the Northeast Council in Loveland, January 17 & 18, the annual election of officers was held. Fred Layberger, Michael Turley and Linda & Ralph Goble were elected to the Exective Board. Marilyn Berg was reelected to serve as Secretary for another year. The CSSDA is goverened by a Board of Directors, made up of two senior and two junior representatives from each of the four council areas served by the CSSDA. The Senior Representatives for the NECSDC are Beth Oliver & Ron Pecoraro. Junior Representatives for the NECSDC are Ralph & Linda Goble. Senior Representatives for the DASRDC are Marilyn Berg & Marshall Blaney. Junior Representatives for the DASRDC are Joy Chichester & Molly Baines. Senior Representatives for the SEASDC are Alan Hirsch & Barbara McPhaul. Junior Representatives for the SEASDC are Michael Turley & Fred Layberger. Senior Representatives for the CWASDC are Jim & Maggie Stafford. Junior Representatives for the CWASDC are Paul & JoAnn Eakins. These are the dancers who have volunteered to lead your state square dance association. We are fortunate to have them and many other dedicated dancers working on behalf of the dance community served by the CSSDA.
 
Part of the CSSDA mission statement says .....CSSDA will be the statewide conduit for the dissemination and sharing of significant, specific, and timely information, creating a network of open communication and support for and between local Clubs, Councils, other dance associations and National organizations. All sixteen representatives and several other volunteers work hard to live up to the above statement.......you too could be a part of that.......contact me or any CSSDA board member or volunteer to share your views, and/or to offer your help. We always look forward to hearing new thoughts and ideas, and would love to have you share yours. - Fred Layberger
