The Square Dance Association of Wisconsin (SDA-WI) is a non-profit, cultural, and educational organization founded to preserve and promote traditional square dance, round dance, contra dance, and related activities in the State of Wisconsin.

They also assist in the formation and development of square and round dance groups in the state, where currently there are 37 clubs dancing in the state of Wisconsin.

What is Square Dancing?
Square dancing is a social dance with English, French, and Scots-Irish roots, brought to America with the first 13 colonies. You dance in squares of eight dancers (usually 4 men and 4 ladies). Four couples form a "square" and dance a pattern of figures as directed by the "caller". Movements are smooth, rhythmic, graceful and easy to learn. As a rule you dance a tip (two songs) lasting around 10 to 12 minutes and then rest.
