Our History

The Northern New Jersey Square Dancers Association (NNJSDA) was founded in 1958. Its vast and storied history has been written and updated several times, and the current document can be read here.

The NNJSDA Executive Board is composed of an Executive Committee (voting) and several non-voting appointees such as Trustee/Advisors, Grand Square Editor, Webmaster, Insurance Coordinator, and Liaisons. A list of Executive Committee members, from 1958 to the present, can be read here.


The NNJSDA started with 14 clubs in 1958 and today supports 13 clubs in northern New Jersey and nearby New York. A list of past and current NNJSDA clubs and their membership dates can be found  here.
