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.

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 too could be a part of 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

  • Foot and Fiddle: About Us

    Here we are, a diverse and happy bunch

    We are young and old, single and married, “snowbirds” and fulltime Coloradoans, but we ALL love to dance! Foot and Fiddle was founded in 1960 and have not stopped dancing since! 

    We dance for the fellowship. No matter where you go you can always find friends on the square dance floor. When you are new they make you welcome; when you are down their enthusiasm lifts you up. We dance for the health benefits. It’s good for your bones, good for your heart, good for your mind! Did you know that square dancing can add 10 years to your life! But most importantly, we dance because we just can’t resist.  It’s FUN — from the warm hugs to the dessert table to the laughter on the floor.                            

    As members of the Loveland community, we like to support local events. Each year we participate in the Larimer County Fair and Parade.  We danced our way down main street. It was hot but not hotter than us! This year we took first place in the non-profit division. 

    Another way we support our Loveland community is with our annual “Toys for Tots” dance.  Each December we host a dance and ask each dancer to bring a toy to donate.  These toys are given to the Loveland Police Department to dispense to children experiencing hardships during  the Christmas season.

    We are also part of the Northeast Colorado Council of Square Dance clubs. With our dancing community we share helping new clubs get started and old clubs carry-on. 

    This year as part of the council, we helped provide a booth at the Larimer County Fair  to promote square dancing and lessons.  One hundred and seven people signed up to find out more about square dancing! And THANKS to all the club callers, 82 of us facilitated audience participation dancing during the fair.  

  • NEW TO SQUARE DANCING? Square Dancing is dancing in a square with a partner and 3 other couples. A Caller "calls" out the dance and you follow the directions. Anyone can do it! Square Dancing requires lessons to participate in dances. See our LESSONS schedule to get started.
