Toronto and District

Square and Round Dance Assn.

Welcome... dancers, returning dancers and never-stopped dancers

Square dancing is a great way to have fun, keep active and get connected to people in your community. Clubs across the GTA dance regularly, usually from Sept to May. Watch here for announcements of Open Houses, which usually take place in Sept & Jan. Experienced dancers, watch the calendar and Facebook for invitations to events and dances across the region.

Association News

Sad news for Round dancers in Ontario and New York State: Merry Hinkle has decided the call it a day for the Hinkle Dancers. She and her late husband Dick Hinkle founded the club in 1982. She will be much missed by her dancers in Amherst, NY and elsewhere. Here's the announcement

We hope you are all well. We're sure, like us, you're missing square dance terribly, and ready to get back on the floor.

In light of provincial and local emergency restrictions:
  • Clubs have now suspended all dancing until further notice. Check with your local club when general resrictions have been lifted
  • Before traveling to an event, check the Calendar for notice of cancellation
  • Clubs, please notify us of any cancellations
  • If you feel unwell, please stay home
  • If you've been travelling out-of-country, please stay home for at least 14 days

Clubs might consider contacting their members periodically, by phone. Make sure they are up-to-date on club info, and not in distress. The personal contact will probably be welcome.

Our recent bulletins concerning the COVID-19 outbreak:


Don't get overly stressed. We'll be back on the floor, and square dancing again soon. If you want to chat, please contact us. Stay tuned for updated information in the fall.

It's always a great time to review your Taminations. Pop quiz: what's the call? Lots of other intersting links on our Resources page
