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. Subscription Dances, where you can sign up for subscriptions to The Modern Square will be noted below as well.

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, contact person, etc. is missing from the information, it can NOT be listed here.

I have decided to REORGANIZE the listing to ONLY include dances in Arkansas, and dances in states surrounding or close to Arkansas...which will include Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. The EXCEPTIONS to this will be for the National Square Dance Convention, the Single Square Dancers USA Dance-A-Rama, and the Heart Of America Singles Square Dance Association (HASSDA). Other dances outside of Arkansas and surrounding states can be found at the Where's The Dance - Flyers Only group on Facebook. With the dances listed, I have made the date of the dance, and the dance name of Arkansas Dances in bold print. The rest will be a regular font, as it were.

However, take note that NOT EVERY SUBSCRIBER to The Modern Square has or wants a computer or internet access, to view the ASSDF Website. So, just because your dance may be listed below, UNLESS you have contacted the Editor (see the Officers page for information), with your ad copy, and have mailed in the proper fee for the ad, your dance listing will NOT be in EITHER the E-edition OR the print edition of The Modern Square. Please send the information of your special dance to the Editor of The Modern Square, at the address found 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 at the dances. In this regard, daytime dances may have the choice of either Proper Square Dance Attire, or casual attire. However, for the evening dances, Proper Square Dance Attire is REQUIRED.

Lastly, please check with the contacts or websites listed before traveling to the dance for more information, or for any last minute updates, changes, or cancellations...as there may be deadlines for festival and hotel registrations, tours, etc.

Also, be sure to check the changes and cancellations page, as well as weather forecasts, plus traffic patterns and construction zones... especially when winter weather or severe weather may be forecast.
