Special Dances are dances held by a club, usually at a date, time, and possibly location, that is different than when their regular dance is scheduled. In these cases, they may bring in a Guest Caller Or Cuer for the dance...usually one with regional or national name recognition.

Benefit Dancers are held by a club to help a club member or a family with medical expenses, or to recover from a disaster, such as a fire, flood, tornado, etc. Also, some clubs do Christmas Benefits for the Toys For Tots campaign.

Dances listed, include the day, date, time, location, club sponsor, caller and/or cuer, admission fee, contact, and any other applicable information...such as a Teacup Auction. If information such as a caller/cuer, time, location, etc. is missing from the information, it can NOT be listed here.

Note that if the dance listing is WRONG in The Modern Square, it is WRONG here. Please check with the contact person listed to verify the date(s), time(s), etc. Also, unless otherwise noted, Proper Square Dance Attire is REQUIRED.

Please send the information of your special dance to the Editor of The Modern Square, at the address found here. You can also send a flier to the Webmaster, at the address found here. The website can usually be updated within 24 hours after receipt, while data for The Modern Square must be in by certain deadlines.
