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.
Follow along with me as I help share the "The Joy of Dancing as a Blind Woman". The Blog written by our Northeast Colorado Council Co-President Kris Nance has been shared on facebook and published at http://blindnsquare.wordpress.com/. She shares her life experiences as a blind woman, a wife, a Mom and square dancer. Follow along with me, it is a great read and very inspirational, especially to those experiencing vision impairments

The Ponderosa Promenaders, one of our State’s youngest clubs celebrated it’s 4th birthday this past summer. They graduated their first class and formed their club in June 2010 with 22 members. In just 4 years they have grown their club to 62 members. At their 4th birthday celebration in June, 50 of their members were present.
They will kick off their 5th dance season this month with Lanny Weaklend calling and cueing their September 28th dance. Lanny has been a major supporter of this young club, and his help in kicking off their first season and all four seasons has been very much appreciated.
You will find them dancing in LaPorte (north Fort Collins). Their new home is at the American Legion Post 4, 2124 County Road 54G (or US Hwy 287 or Colorado Hwy 14). They have a potluck at 1:30 and begin dancing with pre-rounds at 2:15. Come and enjoy a Sunday afternoon in northern Colorado. You will love dancing with Lanny and all of this club’s energetic members.
