Arkansas Square And Round Dance Clubs

To get to the previous page, press the BACK BUTTON on your web browser. To return to the ASSDF Homepage, click on the ASSDF logo at the top of the page. This page was last updated July 19, 2015, with information from The Modern Square.

Note that if the data is WRONG in The Modern Square, it more than likely is also WRONG on this page!! Please note that when you notify the webmaster (yours truly) of a change, please also notify the Editor, so that it can be updated/corrected in The Modern Square.


NOTE: Clubs listed here are REQUIRED to pay a yearly membership fee to the Arkansas State Square Dance Federation by the first of each year (January 1st), and mailing a check for the appropriate fee, payable to the ASSDF, to the current ASSDF Treasurer that's listed in The Modern Square, and on the ASSDF Officers page.

If they fail to so, they are subject to REMOVAL from The Modern Square (including Club Reports And Listings ); and any section of the ASSDF Website...including, but not limited to pages with Special Dances, Callers And Cuers, Lessons, and Club Listings (this page).

The clubs whose entries are removed do NOT have a vote at the ASSDF Delegates Meetings. Any such votes from non-paying, non-member clubs, are NOT be counted in the final total.

With the removal of your club listing for non-payment of dues, it will also be as if your club has disbanded. If you are still in fact, dancing...dancers will likely NOT come, because there is no listing for such. And, you obviously have to have both members and visitors to keep a club going. As Webmaster, I do NOT want to add any more clubs to the In Memoriam page, unless I absolutely have to.

If your club is not sure whether or not it has paid its ASSDF Member Dues for the current year, please contact the current ASSDF Treasurer, either from The Modern Square, or from the ASSDF Officers page.


There are several square and round dance clubs and organizations around Arkansas for your square and round dancing pleasure. The organizations are listed first, followed by clubs on the day of the week that they dance, and finally by the city where they dance...scroll down to, then click on the desired entry. Note that they may dance every week of that day of the month, or on alternating weeks. Some clubs have Guest Callers at this time.

With each day of the week listed, the order of the listing is the city where the club dances, the club name, the type of club (square, round, singles, couples (partner required), open to couples and singles), square dance level (basic, mainstream, plus, advanced, or challenge...or round dancing (usually phases 2-6), time (dance times are in Central Time), location, caller or cuer, and club contact. Due to the economy, most, if not all clubs charge an admission fee...usually from $3 to $5 per person per dance...whether it is a regular dance or a special dance. Please check with the club contact to verify the actual cost.

It is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED that you check with the contact person listed BEFORE TRAVELING to the dance...as some clubs may CANCEL at the last minute for various reasons (weather, etc.), or for another clubs festival dance. It's very frustrating to drive a long distance to discover that a club is ''dark''...or worse, the club has decided to fold/disband. A list of CHANGES/CANCELLATIONS, and a list of clubs that have had to disband is located here.

If there are weather concerns (tornadoes, hail, high winds, flooding, snow, ice, etc.) on the dancing day of the club...either call ahead to be sure the club is dancing...or don't risk the drive in hazardous weather. For detailed Arkansas weather information...including forecasts, watches, warnings, and advisories, click here.

During the summer months, some clubs may go to ''casual attire'', instead of square dance attire...or the club may be DARK (they won't dance). Clubs may also CANCEL for various holidays...such as Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day.

Lastly, to reduce the potential for email spamming, I have REMOVED email contacts from the website... sorry for any inconvenience. However, these are in The Modern Square publication itself.
