About the Society

The South Australian Square Dance Society Inc.

  • The society is a recognised incorporated body, and is therefore responsible to the Government and other legal bodies for all actions of the committee and members.
  • It has a registration number, which means it can be investigated by individuals for any possible reason - thus shifting responsibility from any one individual.
  • In any dealings with government departments or organisations such as Foundation SA etc, a Society has a greater voice than an individual. 

What does the Society do?

  1. Co-ordinates, supports & promotes Square Dancing in SA for the benefit of all Clubs & dancers.
