National Folk Dance Committee

The National Folk Dance Campaign Is On Hold Until
We Can Get Support To Submit A New Bill

The square dance activity has worked for many years toward the goal of getting square dancing recognized as the National Folk Dance. There are currently 31 states that have designated square dancing as their State Folk Dance. The passage of a bill would give square dancing and its related activities more visibility and have a positive effect on recruiting new dancers.
