As everyone is aware of the heightened concern over the COVID-19, the NNJSDA has chosen to exert extreme caution and safety and recommends that all Member Clubs cancel their dances, lessons and events at this time. If you receive an email from a Member Club or a club outside the NNJSDA that a dance, lesson or event is taking place, please call that club to confirm that such event is occurring. We will be monitoring the situation over the next couple of weeks and hope to resume square dancing in the near future.
The Northern New Jersey Square Dancers Association was founded in 1958 by 14 clubs in the northern New Jersey and nearby New York area. The NNJSDA currently serves 16 member clubs representing hundreds of dancers.
The Association holds about a dozen dance events each year, many featuring nationally popular callers. The annual Mini-Festival attracts dancers from throughout the region in halls offering Mainstream, Plus, Advanced/Challenge, and Rounds. New dancers are celebrated at the annual class-level Midterm Dance.
The Association serves as a resource to member clubs that hold square dancing classes. It co-sponsors events that feature square dancing at several venues throughout the region to make the activity visible to the general public. The official publication, Grand Square, available in print and online, features club news, articles, calendars, and a variety of dance-related information.
The NNJSDA also offers member clubs insurance, graduation diplomas, and incentive programs. Among these programs are “Raid”, which promotes visiting among clubs; “One Square Is Fair”, which encourages club participation at Association functions; “Patron”, which rewards dancers for visiting other member clubs; and “Freeloader”, which rewards dancers for participating in summer dances and the Mini-Festival.
