UNITED SQUARE DANCERS OF AMERICA (USDA)
THE WORLDS LARGEST SQUARE DANCE ORGANIZATION
THE ONLY NATIONAL DANCER'S ASSOCIATION ORGANIZED BY DANCERS FOR DANCERS AND OPERATED BY DANCERS
As a “dancers” organization, the UNITED SQUARE DANCERS OF AMERICA, INC. serves to represent the square, round, contra, clogging, line and heritage dancer in decisions which are made at the national level relative to the development and growth of the dance activity. This representation takes place through the various State and Regional organizations affiliating with the USDA. As a united voice, the USDA is able to express the views of the dancers on a national level so that they might be relayed to other national and international groups with whom the dancers interact such as leaders, callers, cuers, instructors, commercial enterprises, other dancers, etc.
Membership is open to any organized nonprofit square dance groups or other groups representing square, round, contra, clogging, line or heritage dancers that will subscribe to the By-Laws, Rules and Policies of the UNITED SQUARE DANCERS OF AMERICA, INC. In states which do not have a statewide organization, or when the state organization elects not to join USDA, area or regional organizations may join the USDA to represent the dancers of their state. Applications for membership in USDA are available from any of the USDA officers.
Numerous projects have been specifically undertaken by the USDA to fulfill the organization’s goals and objectives, and are progressing and expanding very rapidly. Dancers and their organizations, as members of USDA, are afforded the opportunity to participate in the following programs available through the UNITED SQUARE DANCERS OF AMERICA, INC.:
