(USDA) was formed on June 26, 1981, during the National Square Dance Convention held in Seattle, Washington, and has grown to the size that approaches the representation of 310,000 dancers throughout the United States. USDA is an organization formed by dancers, for dancers, and is under the operational control of dancers. The purpose of the organization is to:

  • Promote and perpetuate the total Square Dance Movement which includes Square, Round, Contra, Clogging, Line and Heritage Dancing.
  • Establish a line of communication from the individual dancer to a recognized unified body so that an expression of varied opinions can establish or influence policy for making decisions at the national level.
  • Provide for education to further the growth and enjoyment of Square Dancing through educational publications, distribution of a quarterly magazine “USDA NEWS”, and annual participation in seminars at the National Square Dance Convention.
  • Encourage cooperation between member clubs, state associations, councils, federations; national and international organizations; or other groups involved or interested in the promotion of Square Dancing.
  • Provide a forum for implementing the benefits of membership in the UNITED SQUARE DANCERS OF AMERICA and assist members in any way possible. Our programs include offering Affiliates 501© (3) non-profit status, USA Travelers Program, and accidental medical and liability insurance.
  • Represent Square Dancing to the general public as a wholesome, enjoyable family type recreation. USDA awards Founders Youth Memorial Scholarships , a Centennial Award for dancers reaching the age 100, as well as support for the Handicapable Dancers.
