directory of local dance groups and organizations.
Point-and-click map of the U.S. brings up a variety of
dance links, including contacts, instructors, festivals
and times and places for dancing. All styles are listed
together on this site, which is more interested in
participation than in categorization.
|Contra Dance Web Pages||Youre sure to find a
contra dance group in your area here. Hundreds of local
webpages give you names, locations and times for contra
dances going on across the country. We recommend using
the "State List" feature for fast reference on
this wonderful directory.
|Dancers Archive||This list of swing dance clubs
is organized alphabetically by state, but its
formatted very poorly. There are no headings; you will
have to read the listings individually to know where you
are on the list. Despite problems, this is the most
comprehensive list we found.
|Swing Dance Corner||Easy-to-use list of swing dance
clubs nationwide, many with hyperlinks for fast
reference, by dance enthusiast H. Leon Raper.
Unfortunately, many states have no current listings, but
that is sure to change as the Web grows.
|U.S. Amateur Ballroom Dancing Association||USABDAs Chapter directory
provides a better-than-average list of local ballroom
dance clubs nationwide. Many chapters have websites you
can visit for more contact information.
|The Bliss Find-it Pages||Nate and Debi Bliss in
California offer a "Find It" page which will
lead you to square dance club pages in many areas of the
U.S. and the world. Not complete, but a good start.
|The Hardy Family Page||Gerry and Chuck Hardy in New
Jersey fill in some gaps in the New York/Mid-Atlantic
area that the Blisses dont list. Another incomplete
but helpful compendium.
|Cajun/Zydeco||Wonderful directory listing
Zydeco dance groups nationwide with commentary,
membership information for local groups, contact names
and many links.
|English Country Dancing||Alphabetical index of sites
offering dance times and place for traditional English
dancing and other folk dance events.

complete package history, commentary and a very
complete directory of local folk dance groups around the
U.S. and the world, assembled by Bob Shapiro in Texas.
|Irish Set Dancing||Information and directory about
this traditional Irish dance form, including dance
locations and times in major cities throughout the U.S.
|Samba||Directory of groups teaching and
performing this exciting dance style in the U.S. and
elsewhere in the world.
|Country & Western||We couldnt find a very
complete national listing of country and western dance
clubs, but a fun-loving midwestern couple named Debbie
and Jeff Wilson have put together some great links to
regional websites that may list clubs or dance groups in
|Other Dance Links|
|Sapphire Swan||Most complete and well-organized
dance directory on the Web, lists hundreds of links for
dozens of dance styles, from ballroom to Aztec. Includes
other information about dances, dance products, schools
and other resources for dance.

dance, aimed at providing general information about
